One of our most popular antibiotics, anisomycin, is a protein and DNA synthesis inhibitor that specializes in inhibiting the 80S ribosome network (eukaryotes). Anisomycinâ€™s properties of inhibition become activated when concentrations are enough to effect greater than 95% of the 80S ribosome protein synthesis. Additionally, Anisomycin works by activating the stress response via the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway.
Bacteriocidal antibiotics obtained from Streptomyces that inhibit protein synthesis in bacterial ribosomes and are effective against aerobic gram-negative bacilli. This group of antibiotics includes at least eight drugs: amikacin,gentamicin, kanamycin, neomycin, netilmicin, paromomycin, streptomycin, and tobramycin. All of these drugs have the same basic chemical structure.
