|Cyclic lipopeptide antibiotics|
A lipopeptide is a molecule consisting of a lipid connected to a peptide. Bacteria express these molecules. They are able to self-assemble into different structures.
Certain lipopeptides are used as antibiotics. Other lipopeptides are Toll-like receptor agonists. Certain lipopeptides could have strong antifungal and hemolytic activities. It has been demonstrated that their activity is generally linked to interactions with the plasma membrane  and sterol components of plasma membrane could play a major role and can be their privileged partner of interaction.
