DESCRIPTION:
Betamethasone is a potent glucocorticoid steroid with anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Neomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that binds to four nucleotides of 16S rRNA and single amino acid of protein S12.

 

MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Betamethasone is a glucocorticoid receptor agonist. The anti-inflammatory actions of corticosteroids are thought to involve lipocortins, phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins which, through inhibition of arachidonic acid, control the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Neomycin interferes with the decoding site in the vicinity of nucleotide 1400 in 16S rRNA of the 30S subunit.
