How much and how often should you use the product?

Mechanism of Action

Mupirocin works by specifically and reversibly binding to bacterial isoleucyl transfer-RNA (tRNA) synthetase, which is an enzyme that triggers the conversion of isoleucine and tRNA to isoleucyl-tRNA. Inhibiting this enzyme leads to the inhibition of the bacterial protein and RNA synthesis. Mupirocin is bacteriostatic but at a lower concentration. It is able to exert bactericidal effects with prolonged exposure, killing approximately 90-99% of susceptible bacteria over a 24-hour timeframe.
