Equisetin is an N-methylserine-derived acyl tetramic acid produced by a number of Fusarium species with antibiotic and cytotoxic activity. The compound has displayed inhibitory activity against mitochondrial ATPases and HIV-1 integrase in vitro. In a study of mitochondrial inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase) in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Equisetin is observed to increase mitochondrial PPase activity several folds. Data has shown that Equisetin specifically inhibits the substrate anion carriers of the inner membrane of mitochondria while acts nonspecifically on protein membranes and protein hydrophobic domains.
