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]

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
