protein synthesis machinery targeted by antibiotic

Accession ARO:3000711
DefinitionProtein synthesis in bacteria is accomplished by cytosolic ribosomes that are structurally different from eukaryotic ribosomes, and thus a target for many antibiotics. By inhibiting ribosomal activity, either by directly binding to the ribosome or interacting with co-factors, antibiotics prevent protein synthesis.
