Synonym(s)AMK Arikace Lukadin mikacin Mikavir amikacine Amikacinum Kaminax Amikacina Amicacin Amikavet
DefinitionAmikacin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that works by binding to the bacterial 30S ribosomal subunit, causing misreading of mRNA and leaving the bacterium unable to synthesize proteins vital to its growth.
