How can bugs make drugs?
|Q:||Ask a Question about How can bugs make drugs?|
Most antibiotics work by damaging the ability of bacteria to reproduce and form new cell walls. In this way the body's own defences can kill off the bacteria.
Microbes probably help make antibiotics | and other substances to defend themselves against other organisms.
They are able to evolve very quickly, changing their body chemistry to produce new substances to suit changes in their environment or threats to their existence.
