Meclocycline is a semi-synthetic tetracycline prepared by dehydration of the 6-hydroxy group of chlortetracycline to yield an exocyclic 6-methylene. Meclocyline is a close structural analogue of methacycline. Like all tetracyclines, meclocycline shows broad spectrum antibacterial and antiprotozoan activity and acts by binding to the 30S and 50S ribosomal sub-units, blocking protein synthesis.
Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF, DMSO. Limited water solubility.
