- Cycloheximide (Actidione) is an antibiotic which inhibits eukaryotic protein synthesis. Although many yeasts including Saccharomyces cerevisiae are sensitive to cycloheximide, some yeast strains are resistant to this drug.
- Puromycin N-acetyl transferase gene (pac), of which the gene product catalyzes antibiotic puromycin, an effective inhibitor of protein synthesis, has been widely used as a dominant selection marker in embryonic stem (ES) cell-mediated transgenesis.
- Tumor necrosis factorâ€“related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is a promising anticancer agent because it induces apoptosis in cancer cells but not in normal cells.
