The Effect of Antibiotics on the Biosynthesis of Proteins

  • H. G. Wittmann

Abstract

Protein biosynthesis is a very important process in the metabolism of all organisms, and its disturbance can lead to severe diseases. Approximately 200 different components (amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, etc.) are involved in this complicated biochemical process which occurs via numerous steps on ribosomes.
