Question

Certain antibiotics have multiple physiological effects like decreasing blood cholesterol levels and acting as an immunosuppressant.
  1. True
  2. False


Solution

The correct option is B False
While some microbes can produce chemicals that can help in lowering of the blood cholesterol levels, they do not possess any antibiotic activity. Statins are chemical substances obtained from certain fungi that can reduce the cholesterol levels in the blood of patients. Cyclosporine is also another bioactive molecule produced by fungi. This molecule has an immunosuppressive role and is used during organ transplant.
