Abstract: A nonassociative ring is called a derivation alternator ring if it satisfies the identities $(yz, x, x) = y(z, x, x) + (y, x, x)z, (x, x, yz) = y(x, x, z) + (x, x, y)z$ and $(x, x, x) = 0$. Let R be a prime derivation alternator ring with idempotent $e \ne 1$ and characteristic $\ne 2$. If R is without nonzero nil ideals of index 2, then R is alternative.
