Generic Grifulvin V is used to deal with infections such as ringworm, athlete's foot, jock itch, and fungal infections of the scalp, fingernails, or toenails.
The drug binds to tubulin, interfering with microtubule function, thus inhibiting mitosis. It binds to keratin in keratin precursor cells and makes them resistant to fungal infections. It is only when hair or skin is replaced by the keratin-griseofulvin complex that the drug reaches its site of action. Griseofulvin will then enter the dermatophyte through energy transport that is dependent and bind to fungal microtubules. This alters the processing for mitosis and also underlying information for deposition of fungal cell walls.
