Descriptions

LP15115-6   Erythromycin
Erythromycin (also known as eryth ethylsuc) is a macrolide antibiotic which has an antimicrobial spectrum similar to or slightly wider than that of penicillin. It is effective in respiratory tract infections due to atypical organisms, including mycoplasma. It is also used to treat outbreaks of chlamydia, syphilis, acne and gonorrhea. Structurally, this macrocyclic compound contains a 14-membered lactone ring with ten asymmetric centers and two sugars (L-cladinose and D-desoamine), making it a difficult to synthesize commercially. Erythromycin is produced from a strain of the actinomyces Saccaropolyspora erythraea , formerly known as Streptomyces erythraeus.

LP15115-6   Erythromycin
A bacteriostatic antibiotic macrolide produced by Streptomyces erythreus. Erythromycin A is considered its major active component. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.
