Tetracycline hydrochloride is a hydrochloride salt form of the antibiotic tetracycline. It is commonly used as an agent to activate gene expression from an inducible expression plasmid in engineered cells expressing the tetracycline repressor protein. This polyketide antibiotic binds to both the 30S and 50S ribosomal subunits, thus inhibiting proper protein synthesis. However, it the binding at the 30S subunit is more common. Clinically, tetracycline is used as a broad spectrum antibiotic for a variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial infections.
