Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Dactinomycin (actinomycin D) was isolated from Streptomyces by Selman Waksman in 1940s. The antibiotic shows anti-cancer activity; it was approved by FDA for the treatment of different cancer conditions among which are Ewing's sarcoma, Wilm's tumor, gestational trophoblastic disease, etc. Dactinomycin exerts its action by binding to DNA (preferably to GC motif) and thus inhibiting transcription.   NCATS
