Puromycin 19.02.2019
Puromycin is an aminonucleoside and a cinnamamido adenosine obtained from the bacterium Streptomyces alboniger. It inhibits protein synthesis by interrupting peptidyl transfer on both prokaryotic and eukaryotic ribosomes therefore causing premature chain termination during translation in ribosomes. The mode of action involves the transfer of the amino acids from sRNA into ribosomal protein and it is obstructed in the presence of puromycin, and a... Read More
Standard Solution 19.02.2019
A standard solution is a type of solution with an accurately known concentration. Fermentek’s standard solutions are of high quality and constitute the liquid portion of the reference materials. They are exquisitely made up of exact concentrations around 0.5-100µg/ml in organic solvents. Identified as Fermesol series, these standard solutions have been prepared from the primary standards which are of precisely high purity. In chemical... Read More

Actinomycin D 18.02.2019
Actinomycin D Actinomycin D  (Act D) is a natural chemopeptide which are isolated from the bacteria Streptomyces. Amongst Streptomyces bacteria, Streptomyces parvulus produces Act D with the highest antibiotic activities. It is also known as Dactinomycin or Actinomycin C1. The discovery of Actinomycin was in 1949 by Selman Waksman. Act D serves as an antibiotic, aside from the antibiotic purpose, it has been introduced as a cancer therapy. The... Read More
