Amoxicillin is an analog of ampicillin (beta-lactam semisynthetic  antibiotic), derived from the basic penicillin nucleus 6-aminopenicillanic acid.

Amoxicillin acts as an irreversible inhibitor of the enzyme transpeptidase and inhibits the third, final stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis in binary fission, which ultimately leads to cell lysis.

Amoxicillin is able to penetrate Gram-positive and some Gram-negative bacteria, but it is  susceptible to degradation by ß-lactamases, and therefore, the spectrum of activity does not include organisms which produce these enzymes.
