Tiamulin fumarate is a pleuromutilin antibiotic targeting gram-positive bacteria and several Mycoplasma species. It is soluble in aqueous solution.
Pleuromutilin antibiotics target the 50s ribosomal subunit, inhibiting protein synthesis in bacteria, by binding peptidyl transferase. This blocks formation of peptide bonds.
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.
