Leucinostatin-A is a nonapeptide isolated from Paecilomyces marquandii, Paecilomyces lilacinus A257, and Acremonium sp., exerting remarkable phytotoxic, antibacterial (especially against Gram-positive) and antimycotic activities. With the aim to find alternative formulation for in vivo administration, a number of Leucinostatin-A–loaded liposomal formulations have been prepared and characterized. Both large unilamellar vesicles and multilamellar vesicles consisting of synthetic and natural lipids were evaluated. In addition, to determine the nature of peptide-membrane interactions and the stability of liposomes loaded with Leucinostatin-A, a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy study was performed
