Streptomycin Sulfate is a water-soluble antibiotic originally purified from Streptomyces griseus. Streptomycin Sulfate acts by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and death in susceptible bacteria. Streptomycin Sulfate is highly active against gram-negative with some activity against gram-positive bacteria. Gibco® Streptomycin Sulfate is used alone or in combination with penicillin, an antibiotic highly active against gram-positive bacteria, for the prevention of bacterial contamination of cell cultures. The recommended working concentration ranges from 50 to 100 µg/ml. We offer a variety of antibiotics and antimycotics for cell culture applications.
