Bacterial Inhibitons

Chloramphenicol Inihibits bacterial protein sythesis by blocking peptidyltransferase
Streptomycin Inhibits prokaryotic peptide chain initiation, also cuases misreading
Tetracycline Inhibits prokaryotic aminoacyl-tRNA binding to the ribosomal small unit
Neomycin Similar activity to streptomycin
Erythromycin Inhibits prokaryote translocation through the large ribosomal subunit
Fusidic acid Similar to erythromycin only by preventing EF-G from dissociating from the large subunit
Puromycin Resembles amino acyl-tRNA inteferes with peptide transfer resulting in premature termination in eukaryotes and prokayotes
Diptheria toxin Catalyzes ADP-ribosylation and inactivation of eEF-2
Ricin Found in castor beans, catalyze cleavage of the eukaryotic large subunit rRNA
Cyclohexamide Inhibits eukaryotic peptidyltransferase
