Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Antibiotics...

    • A.

      Interfere with cell wall synthesis

    • B.

      Interfere with protein synthesis

    • C.

      Interfere with DNA replication

    • D.

      Bind to cell membrane

    • E.

      Act as metabolite to disrupt reactions inside cell

    • F.

      Interfere with viral replication

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Interfere with cell wall synthesis
    B. Interfere with protein synthesis
    C. Interfere with DNA replication
    E. Act as metabolite to disrupt reactions inside cell
    Explanation
    Antibiotics can interfere with cell wall synthesis by inhibiting the formation of the bacterial cell wall, leading to the weakening or destruction of the bacterial cell. They can also interfere with protein synthesis by targeting the ribosomes, which are responsible for protein production in bacteria. Antibiotics can further interfere with DNA replication by inhibiting the enzymes involved in DNA synthesis, preventing the bacteria from reproducing. Additionally, some antibiotics can act as metabolites, disrupting essential cellular reactions and processes.

    Antivirals...

    • A.

      Bind to cell membrane

    • B.

      Interfere with one stop of viral replication

    • C.

      Interfere with protein synthesis

    • D.

      Interfere with cell wall synthesis

    Correct Answer
    B. Interfere with one stop of viral replication
    Explanation
    Antivirals are medications that work by interfering with the replication process of viruses. By targeting a specific step in viral replication, they prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading throughout the body. This disruption in viral replication helps to control the infection and reduce its severity. Unlike antibiotics, which target bacterial cell walls or protein synthesis, antivirals specifically target viral replication, making them effective against viral infections.
