Tetracycline

Blocks binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to the A site of the ribosome

Streptomycin

Prevents the transition from translation initiation to chain elongation and also causes miscoding

2

Chloramphenicol

Blocks the peptidyl transferase reaction on ribosomes

3

Erythromycin

Binds in the exit channel of the ribosomes and thereby inhibits the elongation of the peptide chain

4

Rifamycin

Blocks initiation of RNA chains by binding to RNA polymerase (blocks RNA synthesis)
