General description

Chemical structure: fluoroquinolone
Enrofloxacin is a veterinary fluoroquinolone (FQ) antibiotic with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. FQ drugs chelate to iron with high affinity. This chelation leads to inhibition of Fe(II)-dependent dioxygenases involved in the regulation of epigenetic control, collagen maturation, and HIF (hypoxia-inducible factor) degradation. The side effects associated with FQ drugs are renal toxicity and tendinopathy. Enrofloxacin is used in aquaculture and its use may cause an increase in the growth of antibiotic resistant microbes in an aquatic environment. The drug may have negative effects on public health and environment.


Enrofloxacin has been used:
  • to investigate the pathological mechanisms resulting from the toxicity of fluoroquinolones in mammalian cells
  • to prepare a standard solution with 50% acetonitrile in a study to analyze illegal fish drugs used in aquaculture by employing surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)
  • as an analyte in a chemiluminescence reagent system

A keratinase isolated from Paecilomyces lilacinus (LPS #876) was tested against proteins present in the skin but the high enzyme activity was detected on collagen. Keratinase was physically immobilized onto PVA-pectin cryogels and enzyme release was 20.8±2.1%, 63.8±0.2%, 41.5±3.5% and

Fluoroquinolone (FQ) antibacterial compounds are frequently detected in the aquatic environment, and photodegradation is expected to play an important role in FQ fate in some sunlit surface waters. This study investigated the direct aquatic photochemistry of three FQs: norfloxacin, ofloxacin
