How Do Antibiotics Affect the Energy Metabolism?

By impairing the ability of the bacterial cell to produce ATP or other energy equivalents certain antibiotics inhibit bacterial growth. How do theses antibiotics target the energy metabolism?

How Do Antibiotics Affect Protein Synthesis?

There are different types of antibiotics targeting the ribosome, mRNA, tRNA or factors associated with translation. But how do these antibiotics inhibit protein synthesis?

How Do Antibiotics Affect Nucleic Acid Synthesis?

There are several types of antibiotics inhibiting RNA or DNA replication and thereby prevent bacterial growth. But how do these antibiotics work?

How Do Antibiotics Work?

As one of the most highly exploited medication classes, antibiotics address a broad range of bacterial infections by either killing, lysing, or stalling the growth of microbes. But how do these compounds work?
