Enoxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic with a broad spectrum (Gram-positive and Gram-Negative) of activity. Enoxacin was used to treat urinary tract infections and gonorrhea.
|Mechanism of Action||Fluoroquinolone antibiotics target bacterial DNA gyrase, an enzyme which reduces DNA strain during replication. Because DNA gyrase is required during DNA replication, subsequent DNA synthesis and cell division is inhibited.|
|Spectrum||Enoxacin has a broad spectrum of activity and is active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.|
|Molecular Formula||C15H17FN4O3 ● 1.5H2O|
