Description

Product Description

A polyene antifungal effective against molds, fungi and yeast contamination. It binds to ergosterol and creates nystatin/ergosterol based ion channels in lipid bilayers causing K+ leakage that results in fungal cell death.

Application Notes

Nystatin is a polyene antibiotic. Its uses include preventing cell culture contamination and inducing interleukin (IL)-1, IL-8, and tumor necrosis factor a secretion in TLR2-expressing THP1 cells.
