dc.description.abstract Tetracyclines (TCs) are a type of broad-spectrum bacteriostatic antibiotics used for treatment of a wide variety of infections. These antibiotics eventually reach terrestrial and aquatic environments via application of manure or slurry to areas used agriculturally, or by other methods. Bacteria resistance to tetracycline is due to efflux pump among others.
