Molecule Structure Image



Flumequine is a synthetic chemotherapeutic antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone drug class used to treat bacterial infections. It is a first-generation fluoroquinolone antibacterial that has been removed from clinical use and is no longer being marketed. It kills bacteria by interfering with the enzymes that cause DNA to unwind and duplicate. Flumequine was used in veterinarian medicine for the treatment of enteric infections (all infections of the intestinal tract),as well as to treat cattle, swine, chickens, and fish. Flumequine is used to study processes that affect mammalian chromosome and DNA unwinding at the level of gyrase/topoisomerases.
