Molecular Biology Grade Antibiotic with Great Performance in a wide range of Applications

Product Overview:

Chloramphenicol (D( -)-three-2 – dichloracetamido – 1 – p – nitro – phenyl-1,3-propanediol)  is an antibiotic originally isolated from the soil bacterium Streptomyces venezuelae. It has a broad spectrum antibiotic (bacteriostatic) active against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including most anaerobic organisms. Chloramphenicol blocks bacterial protein synthesis by inhibiting the peptidyl transferase activity of the 50S ribosomal subunit (elongation inhibition).
