Working principle of Macrolides
50S is the subunit of the ribosome od prokaryotes i.e., the bacteria and archaea (single celled who lack a defined nucleus) which is the site for antibiotics to inhibit the growth of bacteria. The macrolides have the ability to bind themselves with the 50S ribosomal subunit, this prevents the growth of the peptide chain responsible to send the signals namely via the mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid). This prevents the addition of amino acids to the chain making it weaker to sustain.
