General description

Chemical structure: aminoglycoside

Application

Hygromycin B is an aminoglycoside antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces hygroscopicus. It has been used to study protein synthesis at the level of the 70S ribosome translocation and mRNA template misreading, as an antiviral agent by selectively penetrating cells rendered permeable by virus infection and inhibiting translation, and as a selection agent for hygromycin resistance gene transformed cells. It is recommended for use as a selection agent at 100-800 μg/mL, specifically at 100 μg/mL for prokaryotes, 200 μg/mL for lower eukaryotes and 150-400 μg/mL for higher eukaryotes..

Packaging

1 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mode of Action: The product acts by inhibiting protein synthesis by inducing the misreading of the m-RNA template in the prokaryote, with the potency to inhibit translation.

Antimicrobial Spectrum: Hygromycin B acts against bacteria, fungi and higher eukaryotic cells.

Caution

Hygromycin B products should be stored as supplied at 2-8°C, and the dry solid is stable for at least 5 years if stored at 2-8°C. It is stable at 37°C for 30 days.

Preparation Note

This product is purified by ion exchange chromatography. Hygromycin B is soluble in water at concentrations >50 mg/mL, and also soluble in methanol or ethanol. Solutions should be sterilized by filtration, not by autoclaving. Additionally, Hygromycin B solutions have been reported to lose activity on freezing, and since they are stable refrigerated, freezing should be avoided.

Inhibition of Protein Synthesis by Antibiotics

Protein synthesis is a complex, multi-step process involving many enzymes as well as conformational alignment. However, the majority of antibiotics that block bacterial protein synthesis interfere with the processes at the 30S subunit or 50S subunit of the 70S bacterial ribosome.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
