Antibiotic inhibitors of protein synthesis were tested for their effectiveness in larvae of the red abalone, Haliotis rufescens (gastropod mollusk). Emetine and anisomycin proved highly effective in this system, while cycloheximide, fusidic acid, puromycin, and tetracycline were less effective. Emetine and anisomycin specifically inhibited protein synthesis… CONTINUE READING
