C. xerosis can be treated by the use of antibiotics such as penicillin, erythromycin, rifamycin, and tetracycline. Penicillin affects the cell wall synthesis by disruption the cell wall, which leads to cell lysis. Rifamycin targets nucleic acid synthesis by inactivating bacterial RNA polymerase. The antibiotic tetracycline affects protein synthesis by interfering with the transfer ribosome. Erythromycin also targets protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosome and preventing translocation. With the case were C. xerosis caused pneumonia, vancomycin was used and it inhibits cell wall synthesis by inhibiting the enzyme that crosslinks the short peptides that link the sugar chains together(Wallet,845).
