Other Notes

Broad spectrum third generation cephalosporin antibiotic.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cefotaxim inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) which inhibits the final transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell walls. As a result, bacteria lyse due to cell wall autolytic enzymes.

Cefotaxime, a cephalosporin antibiotic, is active against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. In addition, cefotaxime blocks the division of cyanobacteria and lower plant organelles/plastids such as the photosynthetic organelles of Glaucophytes and chloroplasts of bryophytes.
