4-epitetracycline ammonium salt, EvoPure® is a highly purified version of 4-Epitetracycline, an epimer of Tetracycline. Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibacterial and selection agent.
We also offer:
4-Epitetracycline HCl, EvoPure® (T053).
|Mechanism of Action||Under acid conditions, Tetracycycline undergoes a reversible epimerization at the fourth carbon, producing a mixture of tetracycline and 4-Epitetracycline. Tetracycline inhibits the growth of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria by disrupting codon-anticodon interactions at the ribosome, thus blocking protein synthesis. Specifically, Tetracycline binds to the 30S ribosomal subunit and blocks the attachment of charged aminoacyl-tRNA to the A site on the ribosome, preventing peptide elongation.|
|Spectrum||Effective against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and Mycoplasma.|
|Microbiology Applications||4-epitetracycline ammonium salt, EvoPure® can be use as an analytical standard.|
