Pharmacodynamic properties
Amoxycillin predominately inhibits cell wall synthesis in susceptible bacteria. Amoxycillin has a unique mode of action which directly and irreversibly disrupts existing cell wall peptidoglycan rather than newly forming peptidoglycan of the divisory septal wall as with other members of the penicillin family.
