Hygromycin B, 50 mg/ml in distilled water, sterile-filtered


Chemical Properties

Fully miscible in water and also soluble in methanol or ethanol and buffer solution.


Hygromycin B was used for hygro resistance effect in the following cells transfected 293T cells with mixture of plasmids at 160 ?g/ml, MCF-7ALOX12 cells at 150 ?g/ml, MSCV Luciferase PGK-hygro plasmid and STAT3 Reporter HeLa Stable Cell Line (stably transfected with Luciferase gene under the control of STAT3 promoter) maintained in DMEM supplemented with 10% FBS. It is suitable for the selection of cells transfected with Escherichia coli hygromycin resistance gene (hyg or hph), as well as for the maintenance of the Hygromycin phenotype of resistant cells. Consistent with its more specific effect on translocation, hygromycin B exhibits monophasic inhibition of polypeptide synthesis, suggesting that it binds to a single site on the ribosome.


Protect from heat. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition. Store in freezer at -20°C.
