antibiotic sensitive 16S rRNA

Accession ARO:3000755
DefinitionThe 16S rRNA of the 30S ribosomal subunit helps to stabilize the aminoacyl-tRNAs for pairing with the mRNA codons. Some antibiotics (aminoglycosides) that target the 16S rRNA lead to mRNA misreading as well as premature termination. Other antibiotics (tetracyclines) that target the 16S rRNA prevent incoming charged-tRNAs from binding to the ribosome's A-site, stopping elongation.
Drug Classtetracycline antibiotic, aminoglycoside antibiotic
