shipping condition: Ambient
Ampicillin Sodium Salt is a β-Lactam antibiotic within the penicillin family. It inhibits synthesis of bacterial cell wall by inactivation of transpeptidases. It is sensitive to β-lactamase, which hydrolyzes β-lactam ring. It acts as a structural analogue of acyl-D-alanyl-D-alanine, acylates the transpeptidase enzyme and prevents the cross-linking of the peptidoglycan of the cell wall necessary for the growth of the bacterium. This antibiotic is effective against gram positive and highly effective against gram negative bacteria.
