Chemical Name: O-6-Amino-6-deoxy-L-glycero-D-galacto-heptopyranosylidene-(1-2-3)-O-β-D-talopyranosyl(1-5)-2-deoxy-N3-methyl-D-streptamine
Biological ActivityHygromycin B is an aminoglycoside antibiotic. Active against both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Inhibits protein synthesis by binding to the 30S subunit and inhibiting the ribosomal translocation step of elongation.

Hygromycin was used as a selection marker for few eukaryotic cells which were engineered with Hygromycin resistant gene. Product works beautifully to inhibit translation and killing non resistant strains giving it desirable specificity.
