fluoroquinolone antibiotic [Drug Class]

Accession ARO:0000001
Synonym(s)fluoroquinolone quinolone
DefinitionThe fluoroquinolones are a family of synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotics that are 4-quinolone-3-carboxylates. These compounds interact with topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase) to disrupt bacterial DNA replication, damage DNA, and cause cell death.
