comment Why don't antibiotics affect mitochondria?
Just found this interesting information from the wikipedia article about ribosomes: "Even though mitochondria possess ribosomes similar to the bacterial ones, mitochondria are not affected by these antibiotics because they are surrounded by a double membrane that does not easily admit these antibiotics into the organelle"
