Description

Product Description

A bactericidal antibiotic drug of the rifamycin group. It specifically inhibits DNA-dependent bacterial RNA Polymerase. Mammalian RNA polymerase is not affected so it is useful in plant cell culture work. It is effective against mycobacteria. Also an inhibitor of chloroplast RNA polymerase and may be used to study chloroplast-level DNA transcription in plants.

Application Notes

Rifampicin is used to treat Tuberculosis and Tuberculosis-related mycobacterial infections. It is widely used as an antipruritic agent in the autoimmune cholestatic liver disease, primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). It has been shown to cause hepatitis.
