Product Description


  • Tetracycline Hydrochloride is an antibiotic that inhibits protein synthesis (elongation) by preventing the binding of amino-tRNA to ribosome. Tetracycline is for use in cell culture applications.
  • The tetracycline powder is used to make a stock solution at 5mg/ml in water. The working concentration for stringent plasmids is 10µg/ml and 50µg/ml for relaxed plasmids.
  • If dissolved in ethanol, the antibiotic solution need not be sterilized.
  • Magnesium ions are antagonists of tetracycline. Use media without magnesium salts (e.g. LB medium) for the selection of bacteria resistant to tetracycline.
