Streptomycin Sulphate for Cell Culture

GERBU manufactures high-quality pharmaceutical grade Streptomycin Sulphate for cell culture.

GERBU’s molecular biology grade streptomycin sulphate is available in 10g, 50g,100g and 250g packaging.

Streptomycin sulfate is a high-quality pharmaceutical grade antibiotic effective against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

Streptomycin Sulphate for Cell Culture

Streptomycin sulphate is sometimes added as a means of removing nucleic acids when purifying protein from a biological extract. Because it binds to ribosomes and precipitates out of solution, it acts as a method for removing rRNA, mRNA, and even DNA if the extract is from a prokaryote.

Aminoglycoside antibiotic inhibiting prokaryote protein synthesis

Streptomycin sulphate is an aminoglycoside antibiotic inhibiting prokaryote protein synthesis. It binds to the S12 protein of the 30S ribosomal subunit. It is effective against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Mutation in rpsL (the gene for S12 ribosomal protein) prevents binding of streptomycin to ribosome. Inactivated by aminoglycoside phosphotransferase.

Streptomycin, in combination with penicillin, is used in a standard antibiotic cocktail to prevent bacterial infection in cell culture.
