|Base Catalog Number||100565|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Mode of Action: Polymyxin B Sulfate binds to the lipid A portion of bacterial lipopolysaccharides†, disrupting the cytoplasmic membrane by inducing pores large enough to permit nucleotide leakage in bacterial walls. This disrupts the permeability of the cytoplasmic membrane.Antimicrobial spectrum: Has bactericidal action on most gram-negative bacilli††, including E. Coli and on most fungi and gram-positive bacteria.|
