    Ethambutol Dihydrochloride

    $134.51 - $467.86

    Ethambutol Dihydrochloride is a unique antitubercular antibiotic which inhibits cell wall formation in Mycobacterium species.

    Mechanism of Action Ethambutol inactivates arabinosyl transferase, an enzyme responsible for transporting mycolic acids to the cell wall. Without this enzyme, cell permeability is increased leaving the oraganism vulnerable to toxic matter.
    Spectrum Ethambutol targets primarily species of the Mycobacterium genus including Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
    Molecular Formula C10H24N2O2 · 2HCl
