Biological Activity

Description Teicoplanin (Teichomycin) is a glycopeptide antibiotic, used to treat serious infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria.
In vitro

Teicoplanin is associated with small increases in the GI colonization by C. albicans. [1] The inhibitory action of Teicoplanin on proteoglycan polymerization but not on nucleic acid and protein synthesis indicates that the effect in the wall is due to the accumulation at this level of proteoglycan soluble precursors continuously produced by the cell. [2] Teicoplanin, at a concentration of 1 mg/mL, causes rapid lysis of exponential phase cells of Streptococcus faecalis. [3] Teicoplanin inhibits peptidoglycan synthesis in intact cells and in cell-free systems. Teicoplanin-induced lysis is dependent on the growth phase of B. pumilus at the time of addition of the antibiotic. Teicoplanin induces lysis after a longer lag phase with slowly growing Strep. jhecalis CCM 1875 and lysis is not very extensive. [4]

In vivo Teicoplanin therapy increases the survival rate whereas G-CSF therapy does not in comparison to other groups in neutropenic mice. Teicoplanin and G-CSF combination therapy improves survival rate when compared with groups II, III, IV. [5]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:

Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )

  • C1

* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
