Resistance to tetracycline may be mediated by one of three different mechanisms: (i) an energy-dependent efflux of tetracycline brought about by an integral membrane protein (20); (ii) ribosomal protection by a soluble protein (5, 23), or (iii) enzymatic inactivation of tetracycline (33), which occurs rarely. This minireview concentrates exclusively on the second mechanism of tetracycline resistance.
