Aplicación

Cycloheximide is widely used for selection of CHX-resistant strains of yeast and fungi, controlled inhibition of protein synthesis for detection of short-lived proteins and super-induction of protein expression, and apoptosis induction or facilitation of apoptosis induction by death receptors. It has been shown to selectively clear macrophages in atherosclerotic plaques and activate cumulus-free equine oocytes.

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

Cycloheximide (CHX) is an antibiotic produced by S. griseus. Its main biological activity is translation inhibition in eukaryotes resulting in cell growth arrest and cell death. CHX is widely used for selection of CHX-resistant strains of yeast and fungi, controlled inhibition of protein synthesis for detection of short-lived proteins and super-induction of protein expression, and apoptosis induction or facilitation of apoptosis induction by death receptors.
Cycloheximide (CHX) is an antibiotic produced by S. griseus that inhibits protein biosynthesis in eukaryotes. It inactivate transferase II enzyme that is involved in peptide chain elongation. More recent studies revealed that CHX binds the 60S ribosome and specifically prevents the translocation step in elongation.
