Chemical Name: 7-[(1α,5α,6α)-6-Amino-3-azabicyclo[3.1.0]hex-3-yl]-1-(2,4-difluorophenyl)-6-fluoro-1,4-dihydro-4-oxo-1,8-naphthyridine-3-carboxylic acid mesylate
Biological ActivityTrovafloxacin mesylate is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic. Inhibits bacterial DNA topoisomerase IV and DNA gyrase and forms a stable quinolone-DNA complex with these enzymes which reversibly inhibits DNA synthesis. Displays potent activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Increases the production of mitochondrial NO in immortalized hepatocytes; also increases mitochondrial Ca2+. Inhibits Panx-1 (IC50 ~ 4μM).
