Carbadox has been used to suppress aldosterone production, to study the spread of shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains, and to compare different antimicrobial activities. Carbadox is a quinoxaline-di-N-oxide antibiotic that is generally used in feed to swine to prevent dysentery and improve feed efficiency. It inhibits bacteria by intercalation and induction of mutations in bacterial genome.
