The two antibiotics ASN-136 and monoketo-organomycin (MKOM) showed very close similarities in their UV, IR spectra and elemental analysis to those of tuberactinomycin and yazumycin respectively. Further chemical and enzymic studies revealed the novelty of the two former antibiotics. Partial enzymic hydrolysis of MKOM yielded a hydrolytic product of more potent inhibitory action compared with the parent antibiotic. Having cystine as the N-terminus and taurine as the C-terminus in its molecule…

TLDR
In light of the puromycin reaction, using chloramphenicol and chlorotetracycline as control inhibitors, monoketo-organomycin and cystaurimycin were found to inhibit protein synthesis in vitro by inhibiting peptidyl transferase of ribosomes.
