Abstract

The in vitro antifungal activity of a series of α,ω-bifunctionalized aminoalcohols against Candida glabrata was measured. The dimeric bi-functionalized lipids exhibited activity about ∼10-fold higher higher than D-sphingosine, which is a larger factor than expected from the simple additive effects of vicinal aminoalcohols groups.
