Antibiotic Lab

   
Background Information:
Antibiotics are substance that inhibits or destroys the growth and development of a microorganism. There are many types of antibiotics some are made to destroy cell walls while others stop proteins from being created.
    Penicillin was the first ever antibiotic discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928.  Alexander Fleming was a Scottish biologist and pharmacologist. He earned a noble prize for his discovery of Penicillin, which he shared with Ernest Chain and Howard Florey. He found it by accident he noticed that the bacteria in the plate were lysing because of the fungus growing next to it.
    Streptomycin affects both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It works by interfering with the cells ability to manufacture proteins. Instead of producing their normal proteins, the streptomycin causes the ribosome‚Äôs to create faulty proteins in affect destroying the cell.
    Tetracycline how ever only affects gram-negative bacteria.
