Tetralyme (Lymecycline) belongs to a group of medicines called tetracycline broad-spectrum antibiotic . It is approximately 5,000 time more soluble than tetracycline base and is unique amongst tetracyclines in that it is absorbed by an active transport process across the intestinal wall making use of the same fast and efficient mechanism by which carbohydrates are absorbed.

It has been proven a cost-effective alternative to treatment with minocycline with comparable safety and efficacy. Lymecycline is a broad-spectrum second-generation tetracycline antibiotic used for the treatment of acne and other susceptible bacterial infections

408 mg Lymecycline


Lymecycline penetrates the bacterial cell wall by passive diffusion Inhibits Protein synthesis by reversibly binding to the 30s subunit of ribosome at A-site. During protein synthesis the new t-RNA attempts to bind to the A-site of ribosome, Lymecycline blocks the access of the bacterial aminoacyl-tRNA to the mRNA-ribosome complex by binding to the 30S subunit of the ribosome, thus preventing the addition of amino acids to the growing peptide chain in protein synthesis. Lymecycline provides bacteriostatic action & inhibits ribosomal protein synthesis. However, since the A-site is blocked by lymecycline, the t-RNA cannot bind to it. Thus, without the sequential attachment of t-RNA at A-site, protein synthesis cannot occur.
