A mixture of antiviral nucleoside antibiotics produced by Streptomyces lysosuperificus. It contains at least 10 homologues comprising uracil, N-acetylglucosamine, an 11-carbon aminodialdose called tunicamine, and a fatty acid linked to the amino group of the tunicamine. The homologues vary in the composition of the fatty acid moiety.

An EC 2.7.8.* (transferases for other substituted phosphate groups) inhibitor that interferes with the action of any UDP-N-acetylglucosaminedolichyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase (EC 184.108.40.206), preventing formation of N-acetylglucosamine lipid intermediates and glycosylation of newly synthesised glycoproteins.
