General description

Chemical structure: ß-lactam

Application

Cefotaxime sodium salt has been used as an test antibiotic in antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) methods. It has also been used as an antibiotic to remove bacteria from O. tauri cultures.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cefotaxime, a cephalosporin antibiotic, is active against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. In addition, cefotaxime blocks the division of cyanobacteria. It also has an ability to inhibit the cell division of lower plant organelles/plastids such as the photosynthetic organelles of glaucophytes and chloroplasts of bryophytes.
Cefotaxim inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) which inhibits the final transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell walls. As a result, bacteria lyse due to cell wall autolytic enzymes.

Other Notes

Broad spectrum third generation cephalosporin antibiotic.
