Ampicillin trihydrate is a β-lactam antibiotic with an amino group side chain attached to the penicillin structure. It is a penicillin derivative that inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis (peptidoglycan crosslinks) by inactivating transpeptidases on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membrane.

  • Inactivated by beta-lactamases; therefore, a beta-lactamase inhibitor should be considered when using ampicillin
  • Antimicrobial spectrum: gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria.
    • Ampicillin has a similar mode of action as benzylpenicillin against gram-positive bacteria
    • Against gram-negative bacteria, it has a similar mode of action as chloramphenicol and tetracyclines
  • Bactericidal effect only against E. coli during growth. Inhibits cell wall synthesis by splitting off the β-lactam ring of ampicillin by β-lactamase
