Ampicillin - Discontinued


Add to favorite products Email to a Friend Print View

Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic derivative of penicillin, active as a broad spectrum antibiotic. Ampicillin belongs to the penicillin group of ß-lactam antibiotics. It differs from penicillin only by the presence of an amino group which facilitates penetration through the outer membrane of gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria.

Features & Benefits

  • Ready-to-use solution - no sterile filtration required
  • Stable - store at -20°C for up to 12 months
  • Simple - avoids handling of toxic or harmful substances

Applications

  • Cell culture
  • Plasmid selection
  • Gene regulation

Description

Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic derivative of penicillin that causes cell death by directly interfering with bacterial cell wall synthesis as well as indirectly by initiating the release of enzymes that further alter the cell wall. It differs from penicillin only by the presence of an amino group which facilitates penetration through the outer membrane of gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria. Ampicillin resistance is mediated by cleavage of the β-lactam ring by β-lactamase (bla gene).

Ampicillin is used as a selective antibiotic for resistant bacteria, generally at a concentration of 10-25 µg/ml for liquid media and 35-50 µg/ml for plates.
