Amoxicillin Sodium - CAS 34642-77-8

Amoxicillin is an extended spectrum β-lactam antibiotic and is similar in structure to ampicillin. Resistance to amoxicillin can be attributed to β-lactamase enzymes secreted by a resistant cell.
Like all β-lactams, amoxicillin targets PBP’s (penicillin binding proteins) involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s are enzymes which catalyze a pentaglycine crosslink between alanine and lysine residues. Without a pentaglycine crosslink, the integrity of the cell wall is severely compromised ultimately leading to the death of the cell.
