Isolated alkali cation complexes of the antibiotic ionophore nonactin: correlation with crystalline structures.

Abstract

The antibiotic activity of nonactin is sustained by its ability to transport K+ across lipophilic phases, e.g., the cell membranes. Such a feature can be traced back to a specific ionophoric behavior and to a balanced hydrophobicity modulated by the formation of a cation complex. In this study, the dominant conformations and coordination arrangements in the… (More)
