G 418 Sulfate

Catalog# 16,050

Product: G 418 Sulfate

Description: An aminoglycoside related to gentamycin that inhibits prokaryotic and eukaryotic protein synthesis. Widely used in the selection of eukaryotic expression vectors carrying the bacterial neor/kanr genes. The product of these genes, aminoglycoside 3′-phosphotransferase, inactivates G418, neomycin, and kanamycin by phosphorylation. Introduction of either of these genes into cells can confer resistance to G418, which enables cells to grow in media containing G418.
