RNA polymerase consists of a core enzyme made up of four polypeptide subunits, and rifampicin specifically binds to the β subunit where it blocks initiation of RNA synthesis, but is without effect on RNA polymerase elongation complexes. 32 The antibiotic binds to the β subunit in a pocket which directly blocks the path of the elongating RNA chain when it is two to three nucleotides in length. During initiation the transcription complex is particularly unstable and the binding of rifampicin promotes dissociation of short unstable RNA–DNA hybrids from the enzyme complex.

For instance the sulfonamides, tetracyclines, lincosamides and macrolides all display antimalarial activity, although they are most frequently used in combination with specific antimalarial agents.
