In the field of molecular biology and genetic engineering, Carbenicillin, Disodium Salt is commonly used as a selective agent in plasmid-based cloning experiments. It functions by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis, leading to cell death.
Researchers often introduce a plasmid containing a resistance gene for Carbenicillin into host cells. The cells that successfully take up the plasmid and express the resistance gene can survive in the presence of Carbenicillin, while non-transformed cells are eliminated.
Carbenicillin, Disodium Salt is also used in microbiology and cell culture applications. It is effective in preventing the growth of bacterial contaminants in cell cultures, ensuring the purity of cell lines.
Additionally, it is employed for the isolation and maintenance of strains with known or engineered resistance to Carbenicillin.
