Over 100 million bacteria in every milliliter of saliva ranging from more than 500 different species live in our mouths, and dentists recommend we brush our teeth around two to three times a day. Toothpaste companies have developed safe rinses and pastes to prevent tooth decay and gum diseases. The purpose of this experiment was to observe the effects of different toothpastes or rinses on growth of bacteria. We hypothesized that if toothpaste with antibiotics were used to brush teeth, then…

EFFECT OF CHLORAMPHENICOL ON PROTEIN SYNTHESIS IN CHLOROPHYTUM TUBEROSUM BAKER
TLDR
Though 0.3% of chloramphenicol affects %age of germination and the rate of tube growth, it has no inhibitory effect on the division of the generative nucleus, which indicates that protein synthesis takes place before cell division is inhibited.
