Drug Class and Mechanism
Unlike most other antibiotics which act on either bacterial DNA or the walls of bacteria, mupirocin the active ingredient present in T-Bact Ointment blocks the activity of an enzyme called isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase within the bacteria. This enzyme is necessary in order for the bacteria to make proteins. Without the ability to make proteins, the bacteria die. Because of its unique mechanism of action, there is little chance that bacteria will have become resistant to mupirocin because of exposure to other antibiotics.
