Biochem/physiol Actions

Mode of Action: Penicillin acts by inhibiting bacterial cell-wall synthesis. Streptomycin inhibits prokaryote protein synthesis by preventing the transition from initiation complex to chain-elongating ribosome and causes miscoding. Amphotericin B interferes with fungal membrane permeability by forming channels in the membranes and causing small molecules to leak out.

Antimicrobial spectrum: Includes Gram-negative bacteria, Gram-positive bacteria, fungi and yeasts.
