Cephalosporin C is an antibiotic of the cephalosporin class. It was isolated from a fungus of the genus Acremonium and first characterized in 1961.[1] Although not a very active antibiotic itself, synthetic analogs of cephalosporin C, such as cefalotin, became some of the first marketed cephalosporin antibiotic drugs.

Cephalosporin C strongly absorbs ultraviolet light, is stable to acid, is non-toxic and has in vivo activity in mice.[2] Cephalosporin C, which has a similar structure to penicillin N, was never commercialized.

Cephalosporin C was a lead compound for the discovery and production of many other cephalosporins.[2] Cephalosporins are drugs used for some people who are allergic to penicillin.

Uses[edit]

Cephalosporins are used to treat bacterial infections such as respiratory tract infections, skin infections and urinary tract infections. When a cephalosporin or any other antibiotic is given as a treatment, the medication should be taken for the fully prescribed time even if symptoms disappear.[3]

Mechanism of action[edit]

Cephalosporin C acts by inhibiting penicillin binding proteins.

Side effects[edit]

These are allergic reactions to the drug and require medical attention:[3]

  • itching
  • swelling
  • dizziness
  • rash
  • trouble breathing
  • vomiting
  • severe stomach cramps
  • bloody diarrhea
  • fever
  • weakness
  • fast heartbeat

Chemistry[edit]

Cephalosporin C has weak activity to the staphylococci infection, which was 0.1% activity. This decrease in activity was due to the replacement of the D-α-aminoadipic acid side chain with phenylacetic acid.[2]

Biochemistry[edit]

Cephalosporin C is the product of the biosynthesis pathway of third generation cephalosporins. This is done by exchanging the acetyl CoA into DAC.[4]

To achieve cephalosporin C as the end product, there are 6 genes reported to be in control of the pathway.[4]
