Zeocin™, 100 mg/ml in HEPES, sterile-filtered


Chemical Properties

Fully miscible.


Zeocin, a popular and effective antibiotic for the selection of vectors bearing the Sh ble gene in a variety of cells types (bacteria, eukaryotic microorganisms, plant and animal cells). Resistance to Zeocin is conferred by the Sh ble gene product, which inactivates Zeocin™ by binding to the antibiotic. Sh ble is a small gene, only 370bp in size, carried in a number of InvivoGen’s vectors. Zeocin is used as a selective agent in molecular genetics experiments.


Research Use only: Not intended for animal or human diagnostic or therapeutic use. Supplied in 10mM HEPES, pH 7.5. High ionic strength or basicity inhibits the activity of zeocin. Use at pH of approx. 7.5. For selection of E. coli concentration of NaCl should not exceed 5g/L. Zeocin is a trademark of Cayla
