Cephalothin (INN) is a first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. It is an example of an intravenously administered agent having a spectrum like that of the antimicrobial spectrum to cefazolin and the oral agent cefalexin. Cephalothin is a type of semisynthetic, beta-lactam, first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic with bactericidal activity. Cephalothin binds and inactivates penicillin-binding proteins (PBP) that are situated on the inner membrane of the cell wall of teh bacteria. PBPs participate in the final stages of assembling the bacterial cell wall, along with reshaping the cell wall during cell division. Inactivation of PBPs interferes with the cross-linkage of peptidoglycan chains that are highly necessary for bacterial cell wall strength and rigidity. This leads to the weakening of the bacterial cell wall and causes cell lysis.
It is used usually during surgery and treating a broad spectrum of blood infections. It also finds application as an antimicrobial agent as well as an antibacterial drug.
