AURESINE® selectively eliminates Staphylococcus leaving natural microflora unharmed
Auresine eliminates Staphylococcus aureus being particularly vicious against strains that are resistant to antibiotics, such as MRSA, leaving natural microflora unharmed. Auresine cleaves cell walls of a wide range of Staphylococcus strains. As a result of the cleavage bacteria lose its innate protection and disintegrate. Auresine effectively kills also those Staphylococcus strains, which have already formed densely packed layer, so called biofilm, particularly resistant to antibiotic treatment. Our technology is protected by patent (EP 12722933,4, CA 2,833,335, AU 2012246763, US 14/056,432).
Auresine key features:
effective – microgram of enzyme eliminates millions of bacteria in minutes
selective – kills staphylococcus but saves natural microflora
universal – acts on antibiotic resistant strains (MRSA) and biofilms
kills on contact – no dilution effect
low propensity for resistance
safe – non-cytotoxic, non-mutagenic, non-corrosive, environment friendly
stable – can be stored for years
affordable – efficient production technology
AURESINE® mechanism of action
Auresine is a peptidoglycan hydrolase – enzyme which recognizes staphylococcal cells (pentaglycine cross-bridges, characteristic component of staphylococcal peptidoglycan mesh) and cleaves it leading to instant disintegration of the cell walls and cell death.
