Abstract

The effect of phospholipid head group on the membrane-permeabilizing activity of amphotericin B (AmB) was examined using 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) liposomes and 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphatidylglycerol (POPG) liposomes. The activity of AmB was evaluated as K+ influx measured as pH change inside liposomes by fluorescent measurements of 2′,7′-bis(carboxyethyl)-4 or 5-carboxyfluorescein (BCECF). AmB showed prominent permeability in POPC liposomes, whereas hardly inducing ion flux in POPG membrane. POPC added to POPG liposomes as a minor constituent markedly enhanced membrane permeability, indicating the importance of a phosphonocholine group of PC for the drug's activity.
