Trivia questions : What is Erythromycin?

About erythromycin

Erythromycin definition

Erythromycin is a class of antibacterial drugs with antibacterial effects. It is an antibiotic belonging to the class of macrolides.

Is erythromycin a macrolide

Yes, erythromycin is an alkaline antibiotic produced by Streptomyces erythreus and belongs to macrolides.

How erythromycin works

Its mechanism of action is to penetrate the bacterial cell membrane and reversibly bind to the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome near the donor site ("P" position), blocking the transfer of ribonucleic acid (tRNA) binding to the "P" position. Blocking the displacement of the polypeptide chain from the accepting position ("A" position) to the "P" position inhibits bacterial protein synthesis, thereby playing an antibacterial effect.
