Many natural compounds of antibiotic nature such as valinomycin [1], streptogramins (group B) [2] and calcimycin [3] exhibit the general structural properties of macrocyclic or pseudo-macrocyclic compounds. Such compounds act as artificial membrane carriers and increase the cation permeability of phospholipid bilayer membrane and of certain biological membrane systems. The study of these membrane-active compounds acting as multidentate ligands for cations has substantially contributed to our present knowledge of the basis of transport mechanism and cation specificity.
