What is Clavulanic acid?

CAS : 58001-44-8
Molecular Formula : C8H9NO5
Formula Weight : 199.16
Clavulanic acid is a semisynthetic beta-lactamase inhibitor abandoned from Streptomyces. Clavulanic acid contains a beta-lactam ring and binds acerb to beta-lactamase at or abreast its alive site, thereby adverse enzymatic activity. This protects added beta-lactam antibiotics from beta-lactamase catalysis, thereby acceptable their antibacterial effects. This abettor is acclimated in affiliation with beta-lactamase affected antibiotics, such as penicillins and cephalosporins, to amusement infections acquired by beta-lactamase bearing organisms.
