CEFOTAXIME,SODIUM SALT

(CEFOTAXIME,SODIUM SALT)
Inalco Code: 1758-9318
C.A.S.R.N.: 64485-93-4
Applications: Cefotaxim inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) which inhibits the final transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell walls. As a result, bacteria lyse due to cell wall autolytic enzymes.

Cefotaxime, a cephalosporin antibiotic, is active against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. In addition, cefotaxime blocks the division of cyanobacteria and lower plant organelles/plastids such as the photosynthetic organelles of Glaucophytes and chloroplasts of bryophytes.
Formula: C16H16N5O7S2.2Na
