      How it works

      Norfloxacin is a quinolone carboxylic acid antibacterial agent for oral administration. Norfloxacin inhibits bacterial deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis and is bactericidal. At the molecular level, three specific actions have been attributed to norfloxacin in the inhibition of E.coli cells: 1. inhibition of the ATP-dependent DNA supercoiling reaction catalyzed by DNA gyrase, 2. inhibition of the relaxation of supercoiled DNA, 3. promotion of double-stranded DNA breakage.
