Valnemulin is a pleuromutilin antibiotic targeting Mycoplasma bacteria, especially those responsible for bovine respiratory infections. It is freely soluble in aqueous solution.
Valnemulin's mechanism of action involves its inhibition of protein synthesis in bacteria by binding the peptidyl transferase enzyme in the 50s ribosomal subunit.
Antibiotics are often used in clinical in vitro tests known as antimicrobial susceptibility tests or ASTs to determine their efficacy against certain bacterial species. They are tested against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria using panels, discs, and MIC strips by medical microbiologists. ASTs decrease the risk of using an antibiotic against bacteria exhibiting resistance to it, and the results are used in clinical settings to determine which antibiotic(s) to prescribe for various infections.
