Tetracycline 500mg 20 Caps, Tetracicina
DESCRIPTION: Tetracycline is a bacteriostatic antibiotic semisynthetic broad-spectrum, indicated for the treatment of infections caused by organisms sensitive to tetracycline.
It acts through inhibition of protein biosynthesis. At the molecular level, tetracyclines inhibit transcription of the genetic message by preventing the binding of aminoacyl-RNA transport (including the initiation, ie, formyl-methionine-RNA-transporter). Its antibiotic action is exerted on 70S and 80S ribosomes, in addition to joining the magnesium and calcium forms complexes that inhibit bacterial protein forming enzymes.
