Press Figure JKUAT

The schematic representation of possible binding events occurring between antibiotics in solution and membrane bound targets. This is consistent with the picture that following the application of a lethal antibiotic dose, the insertion of drug molecules into bacterium cell wall can induce a local strain which grows as the number of reacted regions grow until a deleterious strain is generated, weakening overall mechanical strength as well as the ability for the cell to counteract high internal osmotic pressure (yielding cracks on the cell wall – yellow depression) which bacteria cannot ultimately withstand, leaving bacterium susceptible to lysis and death.”
