Kanamycin A is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that is widely used in the field of life sciences. It is derived from the bacterium Streptomyces kanamyceticus and has potent antimicrobial properties against a broad spectrum of bacteria.

In the life science marketplace, Kanamycin A is primarily used as a selective agent in microbiology and molecular biology applications. It is commonly incorporated into culture media to inhibit the growth of bacteria that do not possess the kanamycin resistance gene. This selective property allows for the isolation and identification of cells or organisms that have been genetically modified to express the resistance gene.

Researchers and scientists working in various fields such as molecular biology, genetic engineering, and biotechnology utilize Kanamycin A in experiments involving recombinant DNA technology.

It is often employed as a selectable marker in plasmids and other vectors to ensure that only cells carrying the desired genetic material survive and proliferate.

Additionally, Kanamycin A is used in laboratory settings to study bacterial resistance mechanisms and evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial compounds. Its broad-spectrum activity and low toxicity make it a valuable tool for researchers studying bacterial genetics, protein expression, and antibiotic resistance.
