Introduction of Antibiotics their mechanisms of action and cellular targets.

Plasmocin™ is used to cure cell lines infected by mycoplasma and related cell wall-less bacteria.
Plasmocin™ can also be used as a routine addition in liquid media to prevent mycoplasma and more generally bacterial contamination in small and large animal cell cultures.

- leads to weakening of cell wall & death

- Failure of drug to activate autolytic enzymes in cell wall

In contrast to other anti-mycoplasma compounds, Plasmocin™ is active on both free mycoplasmas and intracellular forms. This advantage is conferred by one component of Plasmocin™ which is actively transported into mammalian cells. It ensures that following treatment with Plasmocin™ a cell culture is not reinfected by mycoplasmas released from intracellular compartments of infected cells.

In all animal cell lines tested to date, even at five times the working concentration, no apparent adverse effect on cellular metabolism is observed.

Other examples of such cellular functions include DNA transcription and mRNA translation, phagocytosis, endocytosis and pinocytosis (cell "eating" and "drinking"), and many more.

faecalis), and Staphylococcus aureus.

Skin and skin structure infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and anaerobes.

Gynecological infections including endometritis, nongonococcal tubo-ovarian abscess, pelvic cellulitis, and postsurgical vaginal cuff infection caused by susceptible anaerobes.

Intra-abdominal infections including peritonitis and intra-abdominal abscess caused by susceptible anaerobic organisms.

Septicemia caused by Staphylococcus aureus, streptococci (except Enterococcus faecalis), and susceptible anaerobes.

Bone and joint infections including acute hematogenous osteomyelitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus and as adjunctive therapy in the surgical treatment of chronic bone and joint infections due to susceptible organisms.

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of CLEOCIN PHOSPHATE and other antibacterial drugs, CLEOCIN PHOSPHATE should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.

Figure 1. Many cytotoxic chemotherapy mechanisms of action may be cell cycle-dependent—arresting cancer cell growth at specific phases in the cell cycle. However, chemotherapies such as alkylating agents act independently of the phases of the cell cycle. Specific nodes in the pathway that are therapeutically actionable are noted.

Felix Konotey-Ahulu, an authority on sickle-cell anemia:

Cytotoxic chemotherapy refers to agents whose mechanisms of action cause cell death or prevent cell growth, generally through inhibiting microtubule function, function, or synthesis. Cytotoxic chemotherapy mechanisms of action may be cell cycle-dependent—arresting cancer cell growth at specific phases in the cell cycle.

There is strong support for therole of T cells in this interaction.

Penicillins are generally bactericidal, inhibiting the formation of the bacterial cell wall. Penicillins are used to treat skin infections, dental infections, ear infections, respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, and gonorrhea.

Cephalosporins have a mechanism of action identical to that of the penicillins. However, the basic chemical structure of the penicillins and cephalosporins differs in other respects, resulting in different spectrum of antibacterial activity. Like the penicillins, cephalosporins have a beta-lactam ring structure that interferes with synthesis of the bacterial cell wall and so are bactericidal. Cephalosporins are derived from cephalosporin C which is produced from .
