Which antibiotics causes misreading of mRNA?
4.6 AminoglycosidesAminoglycosides are potent bactericidal antibiotics that act by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, thereby binding bacterial 30S or 50S ribosomal subunit, inhibiting the translocation of the peptidyl-tRNA from the A-site to the P-site, and also causing misreading of mRNA.
Which of the following antibiotics is recommended for use against gram negative bacteria?
These antibiotics include cephalosporins (ceftriaxone-cefotaxime, ceftazidime, and others), fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin), aminoglycosides (gentamicin, amikacin), imipenem, broad-spectrum penicillins with or without β-lactamase inhibitors (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, piperacillin-tazobactam), and
Why was penicillin considered a miracle drug?
Penicillin was hailed as a “miracle drug” that could save lives and effectively treat a variety of infectious diseases. However, some strains of bacteria have become resistant to penicillin and other antibiotics, making those infections more difficult, and sometimes impossible, to treat.
Which antibiotic does not interfere with cell wall synthesis?
β-Lactam antibiotics are a broad class of antibiotics that includes penicillin derivatives (penams), cephalosporins (cephems), monobactams, and carbapenems. β-Lactam antibiotics are bacteriocidal and act by inhibiting the synthesis of the peptidoglycan layer of bacterial cell walls.
