Semithiobambus[6]uril is a transmembrane anion transporter

Author affiliations

Abstract

Semithiobambus[6]uril is shown to be an efficient transmembrane anion transporter. Although all bambusuril analogs (having either O, S or N atoms in their portals) are excellent anion binders, only the sulfur analog is also an effective anion transporter capable of polarizing lipid membranes through selective anion uniport. This notable divergence reflects significant differences in the lipophilic character of the bambusuril analogs.
