General description

Monensin, is an antibiotic produced by Streptomyces cinnamonensis. It is a naturally occurring ionophore. It has an acyclic polyether sequence and a terminal carboxylic acid moiety. It has the ability to effectively carry protons and cations through the cell membrane, hence it adequately harbours Na+ into a characteristic pseudoactivity, thereby effectively transporting it across a bio-membrane. It also forms stable complexes with k+, Rb+ and Ag+; hence it can be chemically modified to form cation-binding sites, thereby attaining transport functionalities.
