Description

Irgasan (triclosan) is a broad-spectrum antifungal and antibiotic. It is often used as a supplement to cell culture media in Pseudomonas and Yersinia isolation agars to prevent bacterial contamination. It is slightly soluble in water and freely soluble in ethanol and methanol.

Irgasan binds the enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase and forms a complex. Consequently, NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) binds and prevents the enoyl-ACP complex from participating in the fatty acid synthesis cycle, suppressing bacterial cell growth.
