Penicillin G sodium salt has been used:
• to study the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of gentamicin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis sequence type 6 with reduced penicillin susceptibility
• in cell culture alone as well as in combination with streptomycin and other antibiotics
• to inhibit the synthesis of bacterial cell walls by inhibition of the cell wall peptidoglycan chain cross-lining
Mode of Action: Inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis.
Antimicrobial spectrum: Gram-positive bacteria.
Solutions should be filter sterilized and stored at 2-8°C for 1 week or at -20°C for more lengthy periods. Solutions are stable at 37°C for 3 days. The sodium salt is soluble in H2O at 100 mg/mL.
