Name Geneticin
Groups experimental
Description Geneticin (also known as G418) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic similar in structure to gentamicin B1. It is produced by Micromonospora rhodorangea. Geneticin blocks polypeptide synthesis by inhibiting the elongation step in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Resistance to Geneticin is conferred by the neo gene from Tn5 encoding an aminoglycoside 3‘-phosphotransferase, APH 3‘ II. Geneticin is commonly used in laboratory research to select genetically engineered cells.
