General description

Chemical structure: ß-lactam


Penicillin G is a narrow spectrum natural antibiotic. It is effective against Streptococcus pneumoniae, groups A, B, C and G streptococci, nonenterococcal group D streptococci, viridans group streptococci, and non-penicillinase producing staphylococcus. It has been used to study the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of gentamicin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis sequence type 6 with reduced penicillin susceptibility and in cell culture both alone and combined with streptomycin and other antibiotics.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mode of Action: Penicillin G acts by inhibiting cell wall synthesis through binding to penicillin binding proteins (PBPs), inhibiting peptidoglycan chain cross-linking.

Antimicrobial spectrum: This product is active against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.


Solutions should be filter sterilized and stored at 2-8°C for 1 week or at -20°C for more lengthy periods. Solutions are stable at 37°C for 3 days. The sodium salt is soluble in H2O at 100 mg/mL.

Microfabricated devices are suitable for single-cell analysis due to their high throughput, compatible dimensions and controllable microenvironment. However, existing devices for single-cell culture and analysis encounter some limitations, such as nutrient depletion, random cell migration and complicated fluid shear influence....
