Chemical Erythromycin Estolate

Name Erythromycin Estolate
CAS Type 1 Name Erythromycin, 2'-propanoate, dodecyl sulfate (salt)
Equivalent Terms Eromycin | Erythromycin Propionate Dodecyl Sulfate | Erythromycin Propionate Lauryl Sulfate | Erythromycin Propionate Monododecyl Sulfate | Estolate, Erythromycin | Ilosone | Lauromicina
CAS Registry Number 3521-62-8
Definition A macrolide antibiotic, produced by Streptomyces erythreus. It is the lauryl sulfate salt of the propionic ester of erythromycin. This erythromycin salt acts primarily as a bacteriostatic agent. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.
