Streptomycin is an aminoglycoside antibioticum and has a bactericidal action against many gram-negative bacteria. Aminoglycosides are transported into sensitive bacterial cells by an active transport proces. Within the cell, it binds to the 30S sub-unit (S12 protein), inhibiting protein syn-thesis and generating errors in the transcripton of the genetic code.
