Abstract

CD studies carried out on A 23187 (calcimycin) indicate a solvent-dependent conformation for the free acid. Alkali metal ions bound to the ionophore weakly. Divalent metal ions such as $Mg^{2+}$, $Ca^{2+}$, $Sr^{2+}$, $Ba^{2+}$, and $Co^{2+}$ and trivalent lanthanide metal ions such as $La^{3+}$ formed predominantly 2:1 (ionophore-metal ion) complexes at low concentrations of metal ions, but both 2:1 and 1:1 complexes were formed with increasing salt concentration. $Mg^{2+}$ and $Co^{2+}$ exhibited similar CD behavior that differed from that observed for the other divalent and lanthanide metal ions. The structure of 2:1 complexes involved two ligand molecules coordinated to the metal ion through the carboxylate oxygen, benzoxazole nitrogen, and keto-pyrrole oxygen from each ligand molecule along with one or more solvent molecules. Values of the binding constants were determined for 2:1 complexes of the ionophore with divalent and lanthanide metal ions.
