  1. 1. Bio 319: Antibiotics Lecture Three Topic: Inhibitors of cell wall synthesis (brief) Inhibitors of protein biosynthesis Lecturer: Dr. G. Kattam Maiyoh13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 1
  2. 2. Inhibitors of Cell Wall Synthesis13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 2
  3. 3. Carbapenems • Beta-lactam ring is fused to a 5 member ring system • Effect on microbes and pharmacology of carbapenems similar to penicillins13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 3
  4. 4. Selected Carbapenems• Imipenem – Broad spectrum including anaerobes and Pseudomonas aeruginosa – Parentally administered – Must be combined with cilastatin to be absorbed – Excreted by kidneys• Meropenem, ertapenem, and doripenem are similar to imipenem but don’t need co- administration with cilastatincilastatin chemical compound which inhibits the human enzyme dehydropeptidase13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 4
  5. 5. Toxicity/Contraindications of Carbapenems• Nausea and vomiting (common)• Hypersensitivity reactions (uncommon) – Essentially the same as for penicillins, exception is the monobactam – Cross-reactivity is possible, exception is the monobactam GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec.13/02/2013 5 03/Sem02/2013
  6. 6. Aztrenam – a monobactam• Works only on Gm -ve, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa• Useful for treating G-ve infections that require a beta-lactam because it does not elicit hypersensitivity reactions• Monobactam - beta-lactam compounds wherein the beta-lactam ring is alone and not fused to another ring13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 6

  21. 21. Antimicrobials that Bind to the 30S Ribosomal Subunit GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec.13/02/2013 21 03/Sem02/2013
  22. 22. a) Aminoglycosides (bactericidal) streptomycin, kanamycin, gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin, netilmicin, neomycin (topical)• Mode of action - The aminoglycosides irreversibly bind to the 16S ribosomal RNA and freeze the 30S initiation complex (30S-mRNA-tRNA) so that no further initiation can occur.• They also slow down protein synthesis that has already initiated and induce misreading of the mRNA. – By binding to the 16 S r-RNA the aminoglycosides increase the affinity of the A site for t-RNA regardless of the anticodon specificity.• May also destabilize bacterial membranes.

  24. 24. b) Aminoglycosides (bactericidal) streptomycin, kanamycin, gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin, netilmicin, neomycin (topical) • Spectrum of Activity –Effective against many gram- negative and some gram-positive bacteria; • Not useful for anaerobic (oxygen required for uptake of antibiotic) or intracellular bacteria. • Resistance - Common • Synergy - The aminoglycosides synergize with β -lactam antibiotics. The β -lactams inhibit cell wall synthesis and thereby increase the permeability of the aminoglycosides.13/02/2013 GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec. 03/Sem02/2013 24
  25. 25. c) Tetracyclines (bacteriostatic)tetracycline, minocycline and doxycycline • Mode of action - The tetracyclines reversibly bind to the 30S ribosome and inhibit binding of aminoacyl-t-RNA to the acceptor site on the 70S ribosome. • Spectrum of activity - Broad spectrum; Useful against intracellular bacteria • Resistance - Common • Adverse effects - Destruction of normal intestinal flora resulting in increased secondary infections; staining and impairment of the structure of bone and teeth. GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec.13/02/2013 25 03/Sem02/2013
  26. 26. d) Spectinomycin (bacteriostatic)• Mode of action - Spectinomycin reversibly interferes with m-RNA interaction with the 30S ribosome. It is structurally similar to the aminoglycosides but does not cause misreading of mRNA.• Spectrum of activity - Used in the treatment of penicillin-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae• Resistance - Rare in Neisseria gonorrhoeae GKM/BIO319:Antibiotics/Lec.13/02/2013 26 03/Sem02/2013
