Title
Figure 30.1
Caption
Space-filling model of the antibiotic/antiviral drug distamycin A bound in the minor groove of DNA.
Notes
Drugs which interfere with DNA activity by binding to DNA tend to interfere more with DNA replication and transcription than with protein production (translation), and are thus somewhat more damaging to either rapidly dividing cells like bacteria and cancer cells, or cells which have excessive transcription occurring, like cells producing viruses.
