The antimycotic activity of amphotericin B (AmB) depends on its ability to make complexes sterols to form ion channels that cause membrane leakage. To study this phenomenon, surface pressure (pi) as a function of surface area (A) and pi-A hysteresis were measured in monolayers of AmB-cholesterol mixtures on the water-air interface. The most stable(More)
The antimycotic agent amphotericin B (AmB) functions by forming complexes with sterols to form ion channels that cause membrane leakage. When AmB and cholesterol mixed at 2:1 ratio were incorporated into phospholipid bilayer membranes formed on the tip of patch pipettes, ion channel current fluctuations with characteristic open and closed states were(More)
