Penicillin was originally purified from fungi Penicillium and acts by interfering directly with turnover of bacterial cell wall and indirectly by triggering release of enzymes that alter cell wall. Streptomycin was originally purified from Streptomyces griseus. It acts by binding to 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and death in susceptible bacteria.
