Amoxicillin Action Mechanism Amoxicillin is a β-lactam antibiotic that acts as a bacteriolytic agent to execute its target activity of eliminating bacteria from the body. It initiates its action by binding to a protein present in the cell wall of bacteria called penicillin-binding protein 1A (PBP-1A) and thereby preventing the cross linking of th..
Ampicillin Action Mechanism This beta-lactam antibiotic executes its action by specifically binding to Penicillin Binding Proteins (PBPs) that causes inhibition of the final stage of bacterial cell wall formation with the aid of autolysins. Hence, Ampicillin attacks the bacterial cell in a gradual and effective manner so that the elimination of t..
Augmentin Action Mechanism Augmentin acts as a bacteriolytic agent to cause the death of the bacteria and makes your life free of bacterial complications. It executes its action by hindering with the process of peptidoglycan cross linking, which is essential for the formation of an intact bacterial cell wall. The clavulanate potassium component o..
Bactrim Action Mechanism Bactrim employs an exceptional action gambit to fight against the detrimental bacterial infections by impeding the folic acid production, which is a crucial component that plays a key role in protein synthesis as well as DNA synthesis. As a result, on consumption of this medication, it causes inhibition of bacterial growt..
Cipro Action Mechanism Cipro makes sure that the action exhibit by this medication causes the bacteria to surrender themselves and effectively get eliminated from the body. And to achieve this task, this medication attacks two significant enzyme namely topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase) and topoisomerase IV, both of which play a crucial role in the se..
Clarithromycin Action Mechanism Clarithromycin targets the peptide translocation process of the protein synthesis to cause inhibition of the bacterial growth and development, thereby mitigating its adverse effects on health. It achieves its goal by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of the bacteria that plays a key role in the translocation pro..
Cleocin Action Mechanism This medication principally attacks on the protein synthesis of the bacteria by acting as a potent inhibitor and this activity results in cessation of the bacterial reproduction as well as growth. Not only does this medicine acts as inhibitor of cell growth but also prevents the progression of the infection by attacking t..
Doxycycline Action Mechanism Doxycycline mutes your bacterial complication by laying a perfect groundwork plan to impede the growth of the underlying bacteria. It initiates its action by hindering the termination process of the bacterial translation mechanism, which directly results in inhibition of the protein synthesis. Hence, this medication a..
Erythromycin Action Mechanism Erythromycin makes its presence felt in the battle against bacteria by acting as an inhibitor of protein synthesis and also results in hindrance with various key essential functional and structural activities of the bacteria. It causes a calming down of the growth of bacteria by impeding with its transnational proces..
Flagyl Action Mechanism This medication belongs to nitroimidazole class of antibiotic and contains Metronidazole as its major chemical component. Flagyl acts as bactericidal agent and hence its cardinal aim is to cause inactivation of the essential bacterial enzymes along with causing fragmentation of the DNA. This is resulted by initiation of se..
Levaquin Action Mechanism The main reason of this medication to act as an all rounder against its fight with a wide range of bacteria lies in its broad spectrum action mechanism. Levaquin executes its anti-bacterial activity by causing inhibition of the enzyme DNA gyrase (or topoisomerase II), which is responsible for carrying out DNA repair, rec..
Roxithromycin Action Mechanism Roxithromycin eyes the translocation step of the protein transnational elongation process to execute its action on the bacteria. Hence, this medication binds to the 50S ribosomal subunit, which is an essential part of the peptide formation process and thus, results in inhibition of protein synthesis in the bacteria...
Zithromax Action Mechanism Zithromax commences its antibacterial activity by binding to the 50S ribosomal unit of the bacteria, which plays a vital role in the progression of the translational process of the cell. Since, this medication hinders with the translocation step of the protein synthesis the bacteria is unable to aggravate its effect the..
Zyvox Action Mechanism Zyvox contains linezolid as its sole active chemical metabolite that is responsible for carrying out the entire anti-bacterial activity. It executes its action by inhibiting the formation of active 70S initiation complex, which is one of the main components for translation in bacteria. This activity results in selective inh..
