Recommended for use as a selection agent at 10-100 μg/ml.
Bleomycin is used as a transformed cell selection agent, especially for plant transformants. Recommended for use at 10-100 g/ml. It is also used to induce pulmonary fibrosis and epithelial cell apoptosis. 1,2,3
An antineoplastic antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces verticillus. Binds to DNA, inhibits DNA synthesis and causes DNA scissions at specific base sequences. Needs to bind oxygen and a metal ion such as copper or iron to cleave DNA. Highly selective cleavage of RNA. Inducer and regulator of apoptosis in a variety of cells. Inhibits tumor angiogenesis.
