Understanding the drug Mupirocin:
Mupirocin is an antibiotic that treats infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
How does it work?
Mupirocin, like other antibiotics, aims to synthesise bacterial RNA and protein. It halts the conversion of isoleucine and tRNA to isoleucyl tRNA by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme isoleucyl tRNA synthetase. Mupirocin shows no cross-resistance with other antimicrobial drugs, so it is preferred in treating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) induced infections which is a major cause of death in hospitalized patients having systemic antibiotics.
Mupirocin is applied as directed by a doctor. Always read and follow the instructions mentioned in the instruction manual.
