Crystallographic Studies of Valinomycin and A23187
Ionophores are a class of antibiotics which are capable of transporting ions across synthetic and biological membranes. Great differences in molecular composition are observed since these antibiotics may be linear or cyclic compounds and may be either polyethers or polypeptides. Ion specificity is also found to show a considerable variation.
