Doxee or doxycycline is a emisynthetic tetracycline, bacteriostatic broad-spectrum antibiotic. Penetrating into the cell, acts on intracellularly located pathogens. Suppresses the synthesis of proteins in the microbial cell, disrupts the connection of transport aminoacyl-RNA with the 30S subunit of the ribosomal membrane.
