Description:
Vancomycin HCl is a glycopeptide antibiotic that inhibits the growth of gram-positive microorganisms, such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). It is isolated from Streptomyces orientalis and was first discovered within a soil sample found in Borneo in 1953.

Vancomycin hydrochloride interferes with microbial cell wall synthesis by inhibiting the incorporation of terminal D-alanyl-D-alanine moieties of the NAM/NAG-peptides. Vancomycin is often used with cefotaxime or carbenicillin to produce a wide spectrum of activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

Vancomycin HCl is commonly used in concentrations in the range of 50-100 μg/ml. Potency: >1,000 μg per mg.

 

Applications:

  • Treatment of severe infections caused by strains of methicillin-resistant (β-lactam-resistant) staphylococci.
  • Blocks bacterial cell wall synthesis
  • Studies involving cancer patients
  • Studies on antibiotic resistance
  • Nanoparticle transport studies
