Product Information

  • Description

    Moxifloxacin is a powerful antibiotic used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It operates by inhibiting the action of the bacterial enzyme DNA gyrase, which is essential for bacterial DNA replication, transcription, and repair. By binding to the ATP-binding pocket of DNA gyrase, Moxifloxacin prevents the enzyme from undergoing the necessary conversion that allows it to facilitate topoisomerase II activity. This inhibition leads to the accumulation of single-strand breaks in the bacterial DNA, causing cell death.Against gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae, as well as against gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, Moxifloxacin demonstrates particular effectiveness. Due to its higher affinity for its target enzyme compared to other fluoroquinolones, it can achieve higher concentrations at the site of infection, making it more effective. Moxifloxacin's mechanism of action makes it an invaluable tool in the treatment of bacterial infections, particularly those resistant to other antibiotics. However, to minimize the risk of antibiotic resistance and adverse effects, it is vital to use this medication prudently.
