Biological Activity

Description Gentamycin Sulfate (NSC-82261, SCH9724) is a broad-spectrum, aminoglycoside antibiotic used for cell culture which inhibits protein synthesis in sensitive organisms.
In vitro

Gentamycin Sulfate is a complex of three different closely related aminoglycoside sulfates, Gentamicins c1, c1a and c2, obtained from Micromonospora purpurea and related species. [1] They are broad-spectrum antibiotics, but may cause ear and kidney damage. Gentamycin Sulfate is reported to have activity against gram-negative bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus and some mycoplasmas. Reported to have low toxicity to mammalian cells and viruses at certain concentrations, useful for long-term tissue culture studies with viruses. [2] Gentamicin acts by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome leading to inhibition of protein synthesis and death in susceptible bacteria. [3]

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
