However, rapidly growing mycobacteria can develop resistance by mutations in the peptidyltransferase
region of the 23S ribosome gene (24).
DON binds to RNA peptidyltransferase
site and inhibits protein synthesis (De Walle et al.

The cycloheximide inhibits peptidyltransferase
, which is responsible for peptide bond synthesis during translation (26).
Erythromycin binds to the ribosome but, unlike larger macrolides, appears to cause dissociation of the peptidyl-tRNA, rather than blocking the peptidyltransferase
