Griseofulvin - interferes with microtubule function-2. terbinafine - inhibits squalene epoxidase-answer: bf griseofulvin is effective only against dermatophytes which take up the drug via an active transport system. its exact mechanism of action is still unclear but the drug appears to disrupt the mitotic spindle trough interaction with microtubules. terbinafine (also effective mainly against dermatophytes) blocks the conversion of squalene to lanosterol by inhibiting the fungal enzyme squalene epoxidase a) inhibition of thymidylate synthetase would be the mechanism of action of flucytosine. c) inhibition of mycolic acid synthesis would be the mechanism of action of isoniazid. d) inhibition of dna dependent rna polymerase would be the mechanism of action of rifampin e) inhibition of ergosterol synthesis would be the mechanism of action of azoles.
