The crude drug of Bactroban ointment produced by the well-known domestic pharmaceutical company SmithKline is mupirocin which is a new type of local topical antibiotic and a kind of metabolic substance produced in the culture solution of pseudomonas fluorescence, that is, Pseudomonas A. Mainly through reversibly combined with isoleucine transfer RNA synthetase, this product can prevent the isoleucine incorporation and terminate the protein synthesis in cells containing isoleucine, leading to bacterial death.
