Abstract

The mode of action of reutericyclin was determined with fluorescent dyes that probed the permeability of the cytoplasmic membrane by large molecules, protons, and potassium. A comparison of reutericyclin activity with those of nisin, nigericin, and valinomycin demonstrated that reutericyclin does not form pores but selectively dissipates the transmembrane proton potential.
