    Paromomycin sulfate

    $167.10 - $556.97

    Paromomycin sulfate is a freely soluble (50 mg/mL) aminoglycoside antibacterial and antiparasitic drug.

    Mechanism of ActionLike many aminoglycosides, paromomycin targets the 16S rRNA of the 30S ribosomal subunit and prevents translocation and misreading of mRNA by stabilizing aminoacyl-tRNA in the acceptor (“A”) site.
    Spectrum

    Paromomycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic targeting a wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria including Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus species.
