Description

This session will enable you to understand the differences in cell structure between bacteria and human cells. Antibiotics exploit these differences so they can target bacteria without causing harm to host cells. Antibiotics can either affect cell wall synthesis, protein synthesis, DNA replication and can also inhibit various enzymes needed for cellular function. These mechanisms of action serve to inhibit bacteria replication and can prove bactericidal.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify differences between human and bacterial cells
• Classify antibiotics by their different mechanisms of action
• Describe how antibiotics exert their effects by disruption of the bacterial cell wall and protein synthesis
• Recognize how the different metabolic pathways of human and bacterial cells leads to selective toxicity of antibiotics
