Lincomycin Hydrochloride is an antibiotic belonging to the lincosamide class. It works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, specifically by binding to the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome. This interference disrupts the process of protein production in bacteria, leading to their growth inhibition and eventual death.
Lincomycin is effective against various Gram-positive bacteria, including Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and Clostridium species and not as effective against Gram-negative bacteria.
Lincomycin hydrochloride can be used as a selective agent in culture media to isolate bacteria that are sensitive to this antibiotic. Its role in microbiology contributes to the identification and study of specific bacterial strains.
