Mechanism of Action of Levoflox 500 mg:

Levofloxacin functions on the bacterial infection by inhibiting bacterial type II topoisomerase, topoisomerase IV, and DNA gyrase.

This function of Levoflox results in a splitting of the strand on a bacterial chromosome, supercoiling, and resealing. This means the DNA replication and transcription processes are inhibited.
