Oxytetracycline is a bacteriostatic antibiotic that inhibits protein synthesis in susceptible bacteria.  Inside the cell it binds irreversibly to receptors on the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome where it interferes with the binding of the aminoacyl-transfer RNA to the acceptor site on the messenger RNA ribosome complex. This effectively prevents the addition of amino acids to the elongating peptide chain, inhibiting protein synthesis.  The product is specifically formulated to provide a prolonged action resulting in sustained antibacterial activity.
