Metronidazole belongs to the class nitroimidazole. Metronidazole is a prodrug which reduces from its unionized form to the ionized active form. This reduced metronidazole covalently binds to the DNA of the bacterial cells and disrupts its helical structure, which in turn inhibits bacterial nucleic acid synthesis and kills the bacterial cell. The bacterial action of norfloxacin is by the inhibition of enzymes which are responsible for DNA replication, repair, and recombination, which stops the reproduction of the bacterial cell and reduces the infection.
