    Inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to bacterial 23S ribosomal RNA of the 50S subunit.

Linezolid is bacteriostatic against enterococci and staphylococci and bactericidal against most strains of streptococci.
  155. MOA of Nitrofrantoin (Macrobid)
    Nitrofurantoin is reduced by bacterial flavoproteins to reactive intermediates that inactivate or alter bacterial ribosomal proteins leading to inhibition of protein synthesis, aerobic energy metabolism, DNA, RNA, and cell wall synthesis. Nitrofurantoin is bactericidal in urine at therapeutic doses. The broad-based nature of this mode of action may explain the lack of acquired bacterial resistance to nitrofurantoin, as the necessary multiple and simultaneous mutations of the target macromolecules would likely be lethal to the bacteria.
