Answer to Question #16615 in Microbiology for Sara

Question #16615
How could you interrupt bacterial translation without affecting human cell translation?
Expert's answer
Many of the antibiotics used in humans and other animals to treat bacterial infections specifically inhibit ribosome activity in the disease-causing bacteria, without affecting ribosome function in the host-animal's cells. These antibiotics work by binding to a protein or RNA target in the bacterial ribosome and inhibiting translation.
