Fosfomycin Calcium is the Ca2+ salt preparation of Fosfomycin, a phosphonic acid epoxide antibiotic. Fosfomycin is described to inhibit cell wall synthesis through inhibition of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine enolpyruvyl transferase, the enzyme responsible for catalysis of the first committed step in peptidoglycan biosynthesis.
