    Mex$3,840.08 - Mex$13,440.29
    Capreomycin is a complex of cyclic pentopeptides isolated from Streptomyces capreolus, first reported in 1962. The complex has two major components, IA and IB, with an exocyclic lysine residue and two minor delysinyl components, IIA and IIB. Capreomycin is a potent antibiotic with activity against mycobateria, Gram positive and Gram negative organisms.

    Capreomycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
    Mechanism of ActionCapreomycin acts by binding to the 23S ribosomal subunit, disrupting protein synthesis.
    Molecular FormulaC25H44N14O7 (for IB)
