Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic and is usually used in treating urinary tract infections. It is active against many strains of E.Coli and enterococci. The drug works by damaging bacterial DNA, since its reduced form is highly reactive. This is made possible by the rapid reduction of nitrofurantoin inside the bacterial cell by flavoproteins (nitrofuran reductase) to multiple reactive intermediates that attack ribosomal proteins, DNA,respiration, pyruvate metabolism and other macromolecules within the cell.
