General description

Chemical structure: macrolide

Packaging

1000000, 5000000 units in glass bottle

Application

Lincomycin hydrochloride is an antibiotic used to study the inhibition of protein synthesis, bacterial antibiotic resistance and protein and surfactant binding. It is produced by Streptomyces lincolnensis var. lincolnensis, and has been used in the treatment of Staphylococcal, Streptococcal, and Bacterioides fragilis infections.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mode of action: Lincomycin inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by forming cross-links within the peptidyl transferase loop region of the 23S rRNA.†

Antimicrobial spectrum: Lincomycin hydrochloride is effective against gram-positive bacteria.

Preparation Note

This product is soluble in water at 50 mg/mL, yielding a clear, colorless solution.

Inhibition of Protein Synthesis by Antibiotics

Protein synthesis is a complex, multi-step process involving many enzymes as well as conformational alignment. However, the majority of antibiotics that block bacterial protein synthesis interfere with the processes at the 30S subunit or 50S subunit of the 70S bacterial ribosome.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
