General description

Chemical structure: aminoglycoside


Paromomycin, monomycin, is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used to select genetically transformed plants and plant cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Paromomycin inhibits the initiation and elongation steps of protein synthesis by binding to 16S ribosomal RNA. Paramomycin binds to the A site, which causes defective polypeptide chains to be produced and leads to cell death.
