General Antibacterial Groups

Antibacterial groups can affect various cellular components. Cell wall inhibitors include b-lactams antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalosporin. Protein synthesis inhibitors include 50s and 30s inhibitors such aminoglycoside and macrolides. Inhibitor

Protein Synthesis Inhibitors

Bacterial ribosome is composed of two subunits; 30s and 50s subunits that unite together to form 70s complex. Tetracycline inhibits the binding of tRNA to 30s subunit. Aminoglycosides bind to and distort 30s subunit. Chloramphenicol inhibit the elongation
