Abstract

Summary: With a liquid membrane potassium-sensitive electrode it was shown that lethal concentrations of the polyene antibiotics amphotericin B, candicidin and nystatin caused leakage of 90% of non-bound potassium ions from . Accurate and rapid determinations of rates of potassium leakage were made directly in suspensions of Candida. Leakage patterns for the three polyenes were very similar, suggesting a common site of action. Differences were noted in the rates of potassium efflux with organisms from cultures of differing ages.
