Antimicrobials for Plant Tissue Culture
Antimicrobials in plant tissue culture are recommended for suppressing the growth of bacteria, fungus and other microbes. Whether you require an antibiotic active against gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, yeast, or fungi, MP Biomedicals provides a wide range of high-quality antimicrobials to treat your cell culture contamination. These easy-to-use, effective antibiotics can efficiently keep cell cultures contamination-free from a wide range of common microbiological contaminants.
Amphotericin-B (250 µg/mL) 20 mL
Amphotericin B is a polyene antifungal antibiotic from Streptomyces sp. It has a high affinity for sterols, primarily ergosterols, of fungal and bacterial cell membranes. It is an antibiotic solution effective against yeast and other fungi. Amphotericin B may be toxic to some insect cell types. Amphotericin B, is an antimycotic.
G418 Sulfate Solution
G418 Sulfate is an aminoglycoside related to Gentamicin and is toxic to bacteria, yeast,higher plants, mammalian cells, protozoans and helminths. The resistance genes are located on transposons Tn601(903) and Tn5 and are bacterial in derivation, but they can be expressed in eukaryotic cells. By introducing these genes into cells, resistance to G418 Sulfate is conferred. G418 Sulfate is an effective selecting agent utilized in killing prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Gentamicin Sul,10 mg/mL
Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic complex produced by fermentation of Micromonospora purpurea or M. echinospora. It is a mixture of 3 major components designated as C1 (C21H43N5O7), C1a (C19H39N5O), and C2 (C20H41N5O7). Gentamicin is used as the sulfate salt. Each component consists of five basic nitrogens and requires five equivalents of sulfuric acid per mole of gentamicin base. Gentamicin sulfate is a broad spectrum antibiotic. It inhibits the growth of a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms, including strains resistant to tetracycline, chloramphenicol, kanamycin, and colistin, particularly strains of Pseudomonas, Proteus, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus. It is effective against mycoplasma as well.
