Researchers track where tetracycline antibiotics go in human cells



We know that antibiotics treat bacterial infections. We also know why they work. Tetracycline antibiotics, for example, stop bacteria from making protein. Like a boot on a wheel, the drugs bind to the bacterial cell’s ribosome–where protein is made–and prevent it from working. Without protein, the bacteria weaken and die.
