pneumoniae is point mutations in a few positions of domain V of the peptidyl transferase loop of 23S rRNA, the location of macrolide binding to the 50S bacterial ribosome subunit (3).
This program exploits the peptidyl transferase region of the 50S subunit, which is the catalytic region of the ribosome and the binding site of many chemically distinct classes of antibiotics, including oxazolidinones (e.
Dalfopristin is an olefinic macrolactone that binds to the 50S subunit of the prokaryotic ribosome and interferes with the function of peptidyl transferase, thereby inactivating the donor and acceptor sites of the ribosome.
