    Cefditoren sodium

    $112.51

    Cefditoren sodium is a third generation cephalosporin antibiotic.

    TOKU-E offers three forms of cefditoren: cefditoren (C100), cefditoren sodium (C094), and cefditoren pivoxil (C050). Cefditoren sodium is soluble in aqueous solution, and cefditoren pivoxil is soluble in fat.

    Mechanism of ActionLike β-lactams, cephalosporins interfere with PBP (penicillin binding protein) activity involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s are enzymes which catalyze a pentaglycine crosslink between alanine and lysine residues providing additional strength to the cell wall. Without a pentaglycine crosslink, the integrity of the cell wall is severely compromised and ultimately leads to cell lysis and death. Resistance to cephalosporins is commonly due to cells containing plasmid encoded β-lactamases.
    SpectrumCefditoren is a broad spectrum antibiotic commonly used against bacteria responsible for community acquired pneumonia and pharyngitis.
    Microbiology ApplicationsCefditoren sodium can be used to study antibiotic effects against group A Streptococcus and other microbes responsible for phayrngitis.
    Molecular FormulaC19H17N6NaO5S3
