Biochemical Physiological Actions : A ß-lactam antibiotic with an amino group side chain attached to the penicillin structure. Penicillin derivative that inhibits bacterial cell-wall synthesis (peptidoglycan cross-linking) by inactivating transpeptidases on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membrane. Bactericidal only to growing Escherichia coli. Mode of resistance: Cleavage of ß-lactam ring of ampicillin by ß-lactamase. Antimicrobial spectrum: Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
