Medical Definition of Ionophores

1. Chemical agents that increase the permeability of biological or artificial lipid membranes to specific ions. most ionophores are relatively small organic molecules that act as mobile carriers within membranes or coalesce to form ion permeable channels across membranes. Many are antibiotics, and many act as uncoupling agents by short-circuiting the proton gradient across mitochondrial membranes. (12 Dec 1998)
