Rubidomycin1, obtained from cultures of Streptomyces coeruleorubidus [63, 79, 80, 184], is a basic antibiotic, orange-red in color, belonging to the group studied by Ollis and Sutherland . This group of antibiotics, to which the name of anthracyclines was given by Brockmann , includes among others aklavin , the cinerubins , nogalamycin , the pyrromycins , the rhodomycins , the isorhodomycins , and rutilantin , most of which possess cytostatic properties. Rubidomycin is identical with daunomycin, an antibiotic2 obtained from cultures of Streptomyces peucetius [52, 68, 69, 71]. This has recently been confirmed by Tong et al. [219 bis].
