IC50: 0.2 μM for HCMV , 0.14 μM for D1–CDK4 
The natural product Arcyriaflavin A, unsubstituted indolocarbazole, was a potent selective inhibitor of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) replication. HCMV infection is typically unnoticed in healthy people, but can be life-threatening for the immunocompromised.
In vitro: Arcyriaflavin A is a potent, selective inhibitor of HCMV replication in cell culture, and the anti-HCMV activity appeared no relation to the inhibition of protein kinase C. The imide NH was identified to be essential for anti-HCMV activity . Arcyriaflavin A also has been showed the inhibitory activity against D1/CDK4 with a IC50 of 59 nM. Based on X-ray co-crystal structure of staurosporine and the human CDK2, the acidic proton of the maleimide moiety and the carbonyl group play critical roles by acting as a hydrogen bond donor and acceptor in the ATP binding pocket of CDK2 .
In vivo: So far, no in vivo study has been conducted.
Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
