What is erythromycin?

1. Definition

Erythromycin is a class of antibacterial drugs with antibacterial effects. It is an antibiotic belonging to the class of macrolides. It is mainly used for a variety of infections, including respiratory infections, skin infections, as well as early syphilis, urogenital infections, oral Infection, etc. Its antibacterial spectrum is actually similar to penicillin. It has a strong inhibitory effect on Gram-positive bacteria like Staphylococcus, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Bacillus also has a considerable inhibitory effect.

Erythromycin is an alkaline antibiotic produced by Streptomyces erythreus and belongs to macrolides.

2. Mechanism of action

Its mechanism of action is to penetrate the bacterial cell membrane and reversibly bind to the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome near the donor site ("P" position), blocking the transfer of ribonucleic acid (tRNA) binding to the "P" position. Blocking the displacement of the polypeptide chain from the accepting position ("A" position) to the "P" position inhibits bacterial protein synthesis, thereby playing an antibacterial effect.
