Mupirocin (Bactroban or Centany) is an antibiotic originally isolated from Pseudomonas fluorescens NCIMB 10586, 1 developed by Beecham.
Mupirocin is bacteriostatic at low concentrations and bactericidal at high concentrations.2 It is used topically and is effective against Gram-positive bacteria, including MRSA.3 Mupirocin is a mixture of several pseudomonic acids, with pseudomonic acid A (PA-A) constituting greater than 90% of the mixture. Also present in mupirocin are pseudomonic acid B with an additional hydroxyl group at C8,4 pseudomonic acid C with a double bond between C10 and C11, instead of the epoxide of PA-A,5 and pseudomonic acid D with a double bond at C4
and C5 in the 9-hydroxy-nonanoic acid portion of mupirocin.
