Cationic steroid antibiotics have been developed that display broad-spectrum antibacterial activity. These compounds are comprised of steroids appended with amine groups arranged to yield facially amphiphilic morphology. Examples of these antibiotics are highly bactericidal, while related compounds effectively permeabilize the outer membranes of(More)
[structure:see text] Anionic facial amphiphiles have been prepared from cholic acid. These compounds offer antipodes of recently reported cationic amphiphiles derived from cholic acid. The synthesis of the anionic amphiphiles was accomplished in few steps from a common intermediate. In contrast to many other anionic facial amphiphiles, the cholic acid(More)
