Question

Is Oxytetracycline related to tetracycline?

Answer

Yes. They're both molecules which are structurally related to each other [and work to suppress the growth of bacteria via the same mechanism, which is by binding to the "A" sites in bacterial ribosomes and blocking the process of protein translation].
