Penicillin G Sodium Salt, Powder
Shipping conditions: Room temperature
Penicillin G sodium salt is used as a β-lactam antibiotic. Penicillin G can be used as a selective agent in several types of isolation media. Penicillin G sodium salt is the sodium salt of benzylpenicillin, a broad-spectrum β-lactam antibiotic with gram-positive and gram-negative bactericidal activity. It acts by binding and inactivating penicillin-binding-proteins associated with the bacterial cell wall, thus inhibiting cell wall synthesis and resulting in cell lysis. It has been used to study the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of gentamicin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis sequence type 6 with reduced penicillin susceptibility and in cell culture both alone and combined with streptomycin and other antibiotics.
