The effects of pH, metal ions (calcium and magnesium) and sterols (cholesterol and ergosterol), on the interaction of polyene antibiotics with respiring Saccharomyces cerevisiae (NCYC 239) cells have been studied by flow microcalorimetry. The bioactivity of nystatin decreases as the pH of the medium increases toward neutral. Calcium and magnesium ions attenuate the biological effects of nystatin, amphotericin B and candicidin. The activities of filipin and pimaracin (natamycin) are unaffected…
