Self-assembly of the anti-fungal polyene amphotericin B into giant helically-twisted nanotapes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The amphiphilic polyene amphotericin B, a powerful treatment for systemic fungal infections, is shown to exhibit a critical aggregation concentration, and to form giant helically-twisted nanostructures via self-assembly in basic aqueous solution.
