Tetracyclines probably penetrate bacterial cells by passive diffusion and inhibit bacterial growth by interfering with protein synthesis or by destroying the membrane. A growing number of various bacterial species acquire resistance to the bacteriostatic activity of tetracycline. The two widespread mechanisms of bacterial resistance do not destroy tetracycline: one is mediated by efflux pumps, the other involves an EF-G-like protein that confers ribosome protection. Oxidative destruction of… 
Tetracycline resistance: Efflux, Mutations and, Other Mechanisms
TLDR
Two-dimensional crystallization of protein arrays in two dimensions was done with the Tet-6H fusion protein, which was over expressed in E. coli and purified as described, with a subsequent strong anion exchange chromatography step.
Tetracyclines in veterinary medicine and bacterial resistance to them
TLDR
Questions of reevaluating and global reducing of tetracyclines in human and animal healthcare and food production are extensively discussed.
Tetracycline Resistance Determinants in Gram-Positive Bacteria
TLDR
The emergence of tetracycline resistance in the mid-1950s, initially in Gram-negative bacteria and then in gram-positive bacteria, resulted in the declining usefulness of termacyclines and the need for ribosomal protection, and mutated rRNA.
Tetracycline Antibiotics and Novel Analogs
TLDR
Understanding the molecular interaction of tetracyclines with their targets and the resistance mechanisms has clarified their mode of action and set the foundation for the development of the latest third generation of tributary antibiotics, such as the glycylcyclines and totally synthetic analogs.
Tetracycline Antibiotics: Mode of Action, Applications, Molecular Biology, and Epidemiology of Bacterial Resistance
TLDR
Changing the use of tetracyclines in human and animal health as well as in food production is needed if this class of broad-spectrum antimicrobials through the present century is to continue to be used.
The tetracycline resistome
TLDR
Newer generations of tetracyclines derived from engineering of biosynthetic genetic programs, semi-synthesis, and in particular recent developments in their chemical synthesis, together with a growing understanding of resistance, will serve to retain this class of antibiotic to combat pathogens.
TetX Is a Flavin-dependent Monooxygenase Conferring Resistance to Tetracycline Antibiotics*
TLDR
The enzyme TetX not only catalyzed efficient degradation of a broad range of tetracycline analogues but also conferred resistance to these antibiotics in vivo, the first molecular characterization of an antibiotic-inactivating monooxygenase.
rRNA Binding Sites and the Molecular Mechanism of Action of the Tetracyclines

TLDR
The wide range of activity of the tetracyclines against a broad spectrum of bacterial pathogens, viruses, protozoa, and helminths, as well as noninfectious conditions, indicates a more generalized effect on RNA.
Functions of tetracycline efflux proteins that do not involve tetracycline.
TLDR
The use of K+ as an external coupling ion may contribute not only to the organism's K+ uptake capacity but also to its ability to exclude Na+ and Tc at elevated pH values.

Bacterial resistance to tetracycline: mechanisms, transfer, and clinical significance
TLDR
Tetracycline has the double effect of selecting for recipients that acquire a resistance gene and stimulating transfer of the gene, leading to declining clinical usefulness of this widely used antibiotic.
Streptococcal tetracycline resistance mediated at the level of protein synthesis

The mechanism of tetracycline resistance was examined in strains containing each of the three previously identified resistance determinants in Streptococcus spp. Uptake of tetracycline was measured
Role of outer membrane barrier in efflux-mediated tetracycline resistance of Escherichia coli
TLDR
Results suggest that the Tet protein, in contrast to the endogenous efflux system(s), pumps magnesium-chelated tetracycline into the periplasm.
Glycylcyclines: a new generation of tetracyclines.
TLDR
A programme was initiated at Lederle Laboratories in 1988 to develop a new tetracycline which would be active against organisms harbouring clinically important, tetrACYcline-resistance mechanisms, and major breakthrough came with the synthesis of the 9-amino series which resulted in activity against S. aureus strains carrying the tet(M) determinant.
Molecular studies on the mechanism of tetracycline resistance mediated by Tet(O)
TLDR
The data suggest that the Tet(O) protein could function either as a tetracycline-resistant analog of this elongation factor(s) or by modifying the target sites on the ribosomes in a catalytic fashion.
Role of efflux pump(s) in intrinsic resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa: resistance to tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and norfloxacin
TLDR
It is concluded that the efflux mechanism(s) are likely to contribute significantly to the intrinsic resistance of P. aeruginosa isolates to tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and fluoroquinolones, as does the low permeability of the outer membrane.
Epidemiology of tetracycline-resistance determinants.
Structure of the Tet repressor-tetracycline complex and regulation of antibiotic resistance.
TLDR
The 2.5 angstrom resolution crystal structure of the homodimeric Tet repressor complexed with tetracycline-magnesium reveals detailed drug recognition and the orientation of the operator-binding helix-turn-helix motifs of the repressor is inverted in comparison with other DNA binding proteins.
Prevention of drug access to bacterial targets: permeability barriers and active efflux.
TLDR
As the pharmaceutical industry succeeds in producing agents that can overcome specific mechanisms of bacterial resistance, less specific resistance mechanisms such as permeability barriers and multidrug active efflux may become increasingly significant in the clinical setting.
Active efflux of tetracycline encoded by four genetically different tetracycline resistance determinants in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that active export of tetracycline is a common component of the mechanism for tetrACYcline resistance encoded by different plasmid-borne determinants in bacteria.
