Brefeldin A is an antibiotic derived from Penicillium brefeldianum. It is an anti-cancer agent which disrupts protein transport and causes apoptosis of tumor cells. Brefeldin A disrupts the function of the Golgi apparatus and blocks Golgi-COPI activity. ER vesicles are prevented from fusion with the Golgi and are secretion is inhibited. Additionally, Brefeldin A is an ARF inhibitor, sphingomyelin cycle activator, and caspase-3 activator. It has been shown to induce apoptosis in leukemia cells and colon cancer cells.
