Applications

Penicillin G potassium salt is used as a cell culture additive as an antibiotics. Use to inhibit the synthesis of bacterial cell walls by inhibition of the cell wall peptidoglycan chain cross-lining. It is the drug of choice for groups A, B, C and G streptococci, nonenterococcal group D streptococci, viridians group streptococci, and non-penicillinase producing staphylococcus. The potassium salt has been used to study murosomes of staphylococci and the penicillin-induced lysis of Streptococcus mutans.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
