Nitrofurans

Nitrofurans are a class of drugs typically used as antibiotics or antimicrobials. The defining structural component is a furan ring with a nitro group. Gold Biotechnology offers two nitrofurans for research purposes: furazodilone and nitrofurantoin. Furazolidone is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that targets bacterial DNA to induce cross-links which lead to an increased mutation rate or prevents complete DNA replication. Nitrofurantoin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is activated by bacterial enzymes and targets ribosomes and nucleic acids which inhibit bacterial growth.

Furazolidone

Catalog ID Size Pricing
F-480-10 10 g $ 46.00
F-480-25 25 g $ 94.00

Description

Furazolidone is a nitrofuran derivative antibiotic with antiprotozoal and antibacterial activity. It targets a wide variety of bacteria, including those responsible for gastrointestinal infections. It has also been used as a DNA cross-linking agent.

Furazolidone binds bacterial DNA, inhibiting monoamine oxidase (MAO). It induces cross-links leading to an increased rate of mutation or halted DNA replication.
