Oxytetracycline is an anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and anti-proliferative agent shown to inhibit mitochondrial protein synthesis. Mechanistic studies show that this compound reduces cytochrome c activity which eventually causes cell growth arrest. Additionally, Oxytetracycline has demonstrated the ability to reduce murine bronchial inflammation. The anti-inflammatory characteristics of this agent are due to its ability to cause a decrease in IL-4, IL-5, IL-13, immune cells, and the ovalbumin-specific IgE. Data suggests that Oxytetracycline is also an inhibitor of NF-κB activation via phosphorylation and degradation of IκB-α.
