One of our most popular antibiotics, anisomycin, is a protein and DNA synthesis inhibitor that specializes in inhibiting the 80S ribosome network (eukaryotes). Anisomycinâ€™s properties of inhibition become activated when concentrations are enough to effect greater than 95% of the 80S ribosome protein synthesis. Additionally, Anisomycin works by activating the stress response via the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway.
Puromycin is an aminonucleosidic antibiotic. Puromycin is a protein synthesis inhibitor by inhibiting translation. Puromycinâ€™s main function is used in cell biology as a selective antibiotic agent in cell culture systems.
