Oxy Royal 40% is belonged to the tetracycline group. Which produce its bacteriostatic action by binding to the 30s ribosomal subunit of susceptible organisms. After binding to the ribosome tetracyclines interfere with the binding of aminoacyl-t RNA to the messenger RNA-molecule/ribosome complex, thereby interfering with the bacterial protein synthesis in growing or multiplying organisms.
Tetracyclines have broad spectrum activity
