Methicillin Sodium Salt is a chemical compound that belongs to the class of beta-lactam antibiotics known as penicillin.
It is a modified form of penicillin that was developed to be resistant to the effects of the enzyme penicillinase, which is produced by certain bacteria. This resistance allows methicillin to be effective against bacteria that have developed resistance to traditional penicillin antibiotics.
This chemical is primarily used as a selective agent in laboratory experiments to isolate and study bacteria that are resistant to methicillin and other related antibiotics. It is commonly used in microbiology research, particularly in studies focused on antibiotic resistance mechanisms and bacterial genetics.
Researchers may utilize Methicillin Sodium Salt in various techniques such as bacterial culture, antibiotic susceptibility testing, and identification of antibiotic resistance genes. Its use helps to understand the mechanisms of bacterial resistance and develop strategies to combat antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
