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

  Trichothecenes  area large group of chemically related mycotoxins produced by various fungi - Fusarium, Myrothecium, Spicellum, Stachybotrys, Cephalosporium, Trichoderma, and Trichothecium. These toxins can contaminate agricultural products before harvest and during storage. They are commonly found in cereals , particularly in wheat, barley, oats and maize. Classification of Trichothecenes Trichothecenes are sesquiterpene compounds that... Read More
Mycotoxins 18.02.2019
Mycotoxins are defined as naturally occurring substances produced by filamentous fungi (moulds) that arouse toxic response when introduced in low amount to animals through a natural pathway. These fungi are referred to as “toxigenic” fungi. They grow naturally as a form of contaminants on some food crops majorly cereals, nuts and fruit. Conventionally, toxigenic fungi which contaminate crops have been grouped into two groups: “field” and “... Read More
