*Please inquire the availability for this product. Clavulanic acid is a β-lactam antibiotic produced by several species of Streptomyces. The free acid degrades and is isolated and maintained as either the sodium or potassium salt. Clavulanate is a weak antibiotic, but is a potent inhibitor of β-lactamases. In combination with penicillin and cephalosporins, it shows potent synergistic activity. Clavulanic acid is a suicide inhibitor, covalently binding to a serine residue in the active site of the β-lactamase.
