Mechanism of action of biologically relevant ionophores[edit] The structure of the complex of sodium (Na+) and the antibiotic monensin A Transmembrane ion concentration gradients (membrane potential) are required for living organisms. Ionophores can disrupt the membrane potential by conducting ions through a lipid membrane in the absence of a protein pore, and thus could exhibit cytotoxic properties. They are produced naturally by a variety of microbes and act as a defense against competing microbes. Many synthetic membrane-spanning ionophores have also been investigated.[5] Many antibiotics, particularly the macrolide antibiotics, are ionophores. Some exhibit high affinities for Na+, others high affinities for K+.[6] The structure of the sodium and potassium complexes of antibiotics have been verified by X-ray crystallography.[7] Ionophores have been used to modify the permeability of biological membranes toward certain ions. Additionally, some ionophores are used as antibiotics and/or as growth-enhancing feed additives for certain animals, such as cattle (see monensin) and chickens.[8]

Synthetic ionophores[edit] Structure of a potassium complex of a crown ether, a synthetic ionophore-ion complex Many synthetic ionophores are based on crown ethers, cryptands, and calixarenes. These synthetic species are often macrocyclic.[6] Some synthetic agents are not macrocyclic, e.g., carbonyl cyanide-p-trifluoromethoxyphenylhydrazone. Even simple organic compounds, such as phenols, exhibit ionophoric properties. The majority of synthetic receptors used in the carrier-based anion-selective electrodes employ transition elements or metalloids as anion carriers, although simple organic urea- and thiourea based receptors are known.

List of representative biological ionophores[edit] With the ion(s) they act upon: Beauvericin (Ca2+, Ba2+) Calcimycine or A23187 (Mn2+, Ca2+, Mg2+) Cezomycin Carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenyl hydrazone (CCCP) (H+) Enniatin (ammonium) Gramicidin A (H+, Na+, K+) Ionomycin (Ca2+) Lasalocid (K+, Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+)[9] Monensin (Na+, H+) Nigericin (K+, H+, Pb2+) Nonactin (ammonium ionophore I) Salinomycin (K+) Tetronasin Valinomycin (potassium ionophore I) Narasin Crystal structures have been determined for many of the alkali metal complexes formed by these compounds.[10]
