Accession ARO:0000024
Synonym(s)ambutyrosin sulfate butirosin sulphate
DefinitionButirosin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used to treat different types of bacterial infections. Butirosin 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.
