Action Mechanism

Ofloxacin present in Ocuflox eye drops is a quinolone/ fluoroquinolone antibiotic. The active constituent is bactericidal and thus its blocks DNA replication in bacteria by attaching itself to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which permits the untwisting necessary for replication of one DNA double helix into two. Remarkably, Ocuflox has a greater affinity for bacterial DNA gyrase than that present in mammals.

This medication acts on the enzymes, DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, which prevent human excessive super coiling of DNA during replication or transcription. Ofloxacin inhibits normal cell division by inhibiting the function of these enzymes.
