This entry represents the C-terminal domain found in a number of different TetR transcription regulator proteins. TetR regulates the expression of the membrane-associated tetracycline resistance protein, TetA, which exports the tetracycline antibiotic out of the cell before it can attach to the ribosomes and inhibit protein synthesis . TetR blocks transcription from the genes encoding both TetA and TetR in the absence of antibiotic. The C-terminal domain is multi-helical and is interlocked in the homodimer with the helix-turn-helix (HTH) DNA-binding domain. Other members of the TetR family of transcriptional regulators carry this C-terminal domain. These include:
- QacR from Staphylococcus aureus, a multidrug binding protein that represses transcription of the qacA multidrug transporter gene 
- Ethr, a repressor from Mycobacterium tuberculosis implicated in ethionamide drug resistance 
- CprB, a gamma-butyrolactone autoregulator/receptor from Streptomyces coelicolor that acts as a DNA-binding protein 
- YcdC, a hypothetical transcriptional regulator from Escherichia coli
- YsiA, YfiR, and YxaF, hypothetical transcriptional regulators from Bacillus subtilis
- YbiH, a hypothetical transcriptional regulator from Salmonella typhimurium
