Example of synergy between two antibiotics. (A) Either penicillin or an aminoglycoside is administered; the cells are inhibited but not killed. (B) When penicillin and an aminoglycoside are administered concurrently, the penicillin compromises the cell wall, enabling the aminoglycoside to enter the cell and reach the ribosomes to prevent protein synthesis, thereby killing the cells.
