PMID: 3539192

Abstract

In the 1970's great strides were made in understanding the mechanism of action of amphotericin B and nystatin: the formation of transmembrane pores was clearly demonstrated in planar lipid monolayers, in multilamellar phospholipid vesicles and in Acholeplasma laidlawii cells and the imp...read more
