Streptomycin is an antibiotic that binds to the S12 protein and the 30S ribosomal subunit, inhibits translocation, and elicits miscoding. Streptomycin is for use in cell culture applications.
The streptomycin powder is used to make a stock solution at 10mg/ml in water. The working concentration for stringent plasmids is 10µg/ml and 50µg/ml for relaxed plasmids.
Stock solution of streptomycin dissolved in water should be sterilized by filtration through a 0.22 micron filter.
