A.G.Scientific emerged as a leading manufacturer and importer of Hygromycin B, an antibiotic used for gene selection. Over the past 18 years we have learned a lot about this Aminoglycosides antibiotic. It was our success with a combination of fermentation & synthesis that has allowed us to build a customer base of researchers and catalog biochemical distributors worldwide. Questions on solution storage & what are the procedures to determine toxic concentration are common to all customers of Hygromycin. So here we listed the top questions we have received from our customers.
- Hygromycin B is an antibiotic used by scientists in bio-research to select cells modified by genetic engineering. It inhibits the growth of a wide range of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells by interfering with protein synthesis. Hygromycin B allows the selection and maintenance of cells expressing the hygromycin-resistance gene.
- Bacteriocidal antibiotics obtained from Streptomyces that inhibit protein synthesis in bacterial ribosomes and are effective against aerobic gram-negative bacilli. This group of antibiotics includes at least eight drugs: amikacin,gentamicin, kanamycin, neomycin, netilmicin, paromomycin, streptomycin, and tobramycin. All of these drugs have the same basic chemical structure.
