Descriptions

LP16286-4   Tetracycline
Tetracycline, a broad-spectrum naphthacene antibiotic produced by the streptomyces bacterium, is used against many gram negative and gram positive bacteria. It inhibits amino acyl tRNA binding during protein systhesis and is commonly used to treat acne. It is sold under the brand names Sumycin®, Tetracyn®, and Panmycin®, among others. Actisite® is a thread-like fiber form, used in dental applications. It is also used to produce several semi-synthetic derivatives, which together are known as the tetracycline antibiotic group. It works by inhibiting the action of the prokaryotic 30S ribosome. Toxicity may be due to the inactivation of mitochondrial 30S ribosomes in host cells.
