    Ethambutol is a unique slightly soluble (7.58 mg/mL) antitubercular antibiotic which inhibits cell wall formation in Mycobacterium species.

    Mechanism of ActionEthambutol 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.
    SpectrumEthambutol targets primarily species of the Mycobacterium genus including Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
    Molecular FormulaC10H24N2O2
