Description

Kanamycin, from Streptomyces kanamyceticus, is a bactericidal agent that acts by binding to the 30S subunit inhibiting protein synthesis, and as such functions as a broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective against many Gram(+) and most Gram(-) bacteria. Kanamycin is frequently used for the selection of bacteria transformed with a vector harbouring a gene conferring kanamycin resistance, but it is also often used for the prevention of bacterial contamination of cell cultures.
