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 used as a selective agent of ampicillin resistance in mutated and transformed cells having plasmid encoding for β-Lactamase production such as pBR322 or pUC.
It is sensitive to β-lactamase, which hydrolyzes β-lactam ring. This antibiotic is effective against gram positive and highly effective against gram negative bacteria.
