Bacteriostatic agent against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Enters sensitive cells by active transport. Within the cell, it binds to the 50S Subunit of bacterial ribosomes and inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by preventing attachment of amino-acyl transfer RNA to its acceptor site on the ribosome, thus preventing peptide bond formation by peptidyl transferase.
