A semi-synthetic, broad-spectrum ß-lactam penicillin antibiotic with bactericidal activity against gram-positive bacteria. It inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by disrupting peptidylglycan cross-linking. Application Notes Penicillin G is a narrow spectrum antibiotic derived from Streptococcus pneumoniae. It has been used to study the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of gentamicin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis sequence type 6 with reduced penicillin susceptibility and in cell culture both alone and combined with streptomycin and other antibiotics.

Base Catalog Number: 194537
Alternate Names: Benzylpenicillin sodium salt
Beilstein Registration No : 3834217
Biochemical Physiological Actions : Mode of Action: The ß-lactam moiety (functional group) of penicillin G binds to the enzyme (DD-transpeptidase) that links the peptidoglycan molecules in bacteria. The enzymes that hydrolyze the peptidoglycan cross-links continue to function, which weakens the cell wall of the bacterium, it causes cytolysis(death due to osmotic pressure) in Bactria. Antimicrobial spectrum: Gram-positive bacteria.
