Ionomycin is derived from Streptomyces conglobatus, and is a noted calcium ionophore with a selectivity of Pb2+ > Cd2+ > Zn2+ > Mn2+ > Ca2+ > Mg2+ >> Sr2+ ~ Ba2+. There is almost no binding to Sr2+ or Ba2+ or to monovalent alkali metal cations.
Study the effect of this compound on planar phospholipid bilayers with tethered membrane preparations.
