Oxytetracycline Related Compound

Oxytetracycline and other tetracyclines have recently been found to have additional modes of action, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunosuppressive properties.



Is oxytetracycline an antifungal?

These medications function as immunosuppressants, prokinetics, and antifungal agents, among several other functions.

What is the mechanism of action of oxytetracycline?

Oxytetracycline stops translation, which stops cell proliferation. It interacts with the 30S ribosomal subunit and blocks the amino-acyl tRNA from attaching to the ribosome’s A site. The binding’s nature is reversible. Because it passively diffuses across porin channels in the bacterial membrane and is lipophilic, oxytetracycline may easily pass through cell membranes.

Is oxytetracycline good for skin infections?

Infections of the skin (such as acne and rosacea), the chest (such as bronchitis and pneumonia), the urinary tract, the yeast, and sexually transmitted infections (such as chlamydia) are all treated with tetracycline antibiotics like oxytetracycline.
