Application

Linezolid has been used in checkerboard-type drug combination MIC (minimum inhibitory concentrations) assay to determine whether ivacaftor shows positive interaction with linezolid. It has been used for the determination of minimum biofilm inhibitory concentration and for the treatment of Mycobacterium abscessus-infected Drosophila melanogaster w1118 flies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Linezolid is an oxazolidinone antimicrobial. It binds to a site on the bacterial 23S ribosomal RNA of the 50S subunit and prevents the formation of a functional 70S initiation complex, thus inhibiting bacterial mRNA translation. Linezolid is also a weak, reversible, nonselective inhibitor of monoamine oxidase.
