Borrelidin is derived from Streptomyces rochei and has anti-angiogenic and anti-microbial activity. The compound has been shown to inhibit both eukaryal and bacterial threonyl-tRNA synthetase (ThrRS). It also stimulate apoptosis of tube-forming cells in capillary tubes with the activation of caspase-3 and caspase-8. Research shows that Borreldin also disrupts formed capillary tubes and inhibits proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) proliferation. Borrelidin is an inhibitor of Cdk.
