5). The best-known examples are ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin. , and also show a varying degree of activity against Streptococcus pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The mechanism of action includes inhibition of DNA replication by blocking bacterial topoisomerase. Since bacterial topoisomerases are different from mammalian topoisomerases, the mechanism of action is fairly selective. 5. The core structure of ciprofloxacin. 6.
