Protein synthesis inhibitors

Compounds which inhibit the synthesis of proteins. They are usually anti-bacterial agents or toxins. Mechanism of the action of inhibition includes the interruption of peptide-chain elongation, the blocking the A site of ribosomes, the misreading of the genetic code or the prevention of the attachment of oligosaccharide side chains to glycoproteins.
