Chlortetracycline is used as an antimicrobial in veterinary therapeutics. As with other tetracyclines, it is a broad spectrum antibiotic with a wide range of bacteriostatic activity against both gm(-) and gm(+) bacteria. Chlortetracycline appears to act by inhibiting the binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to the mRNA ribosome complex, thereby preventing the bacterial protein synthesis.
