Example: Penicillin combines with an enzyme which is needed to put peptide cross links in cell wall material (Why is penicillin more active against gram positives?) 7. Delicate in that environmental conditions for use are narrow---pH, Temperature, Osmotic pressure, concentrations of substrates must be withing proper limits. Extremes can denature and kill cells.
