    Ceftolozane Sulfate, Stabilized with Arginine

    $216.30 - $592.25

    Ceftolozane Sulfate, Stabilized with Arginine is a broad-spectrum, fifth-generation cephalosporin with bactericidal activity. It can be used in biopharma research for impurity profiling and chemical stability testing. It can also be used for penicillin binding protein (PBP) binding profiles and infection models. The product is stabilized with the auxilliary additive α-amino acid L-arginine to enhance stability.

    Mechanism of Action Ceftolozane Sulfate is a 3'-aminopyrazolium cephalosporin. Cephalosporins interfere with PBP (penicillin binding protein) activity involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s 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 such as AmpC β-lactamase.
    Spectrum Effective against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and E. coli.
    Microbiology Applications In a study of P. aeruginosa using murine pulmonary, urinary tract, and burn wound infection models, Ceftolozane's efficacy was comparable or superior to ceftazidime and imipenem with MIC90 of 1 µg/ml. It was highly stable against AmpC β-lactamase, the main resistance mechanism for cephalosporins (Takeda et al, 2007).
    Molecular Formula C23H32N12O12S3
