A novel cyclic undecapeptide, Schizotrin A, possessing moderately strong antimicrobial activity is the major active metabolite in the cultured cyanobacterium Schizotrix sp. (TAU strain IL-89-2). The gross structure of Schizotrin A (1) was determined mainly by homonuclear- and inverse-heteronuclear-2D-NMR techniques and HRFABMS.
