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 (C-1463) or carbenicillin (C-1385) to produce a wide spectrum of activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

 

Applications
