tetracycline-resistant ribosomal protection protein [AMR Gene Family]

Accession ARO:0000002
DefinitionA family of proteins known to bind to the 30S ribosomal subunit. This interaction prevents tetracycline and tetracycline derivatives from inhibiting ribosomal function. Thus, these proteins confer elevated resistance to tetracycline derivatives as a ribosomal protection protein.
