Extracted from Streptomyces alboniger bacteria, Puromycin is an aminonucleoside antibiotic that inhibits protein synthesis by interfering with the translation process. It specifically inhibits peptidyl transfer on both prokaryotic and eukaryotic ribosomes. The antibiotic inhibits the growth of Gram positive bacteria and various animal and insect cells. Fungi and Gram negative bacteria are resistant to Puromycin due to its low permeability. But in some particular conditions puromycin can be used for E. coli. For more than 30 years, puromycin has been widely used as a basic tool for studying protein synthesis. Now, puromycin hydrochloride is particularly useful for the selection of cell types harbouring plasmids carrying puromycin resistance genes.
