In terms of scientific research, hygromycin B is a commonly used drug for resistance screening. Its resistance gene expression product is a protein kinase, which is inactivated by phosphorylation of hygromycin B. Because hygromycin B is commonly used in eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms. The false positive rate of B screening is low and the reproducibility is good. The screening of genetically modified organisms by hygromycin B has been widely used in laboratories.

1. Hygromycin B is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, which can kill bacteria, fungi and advanced eukaryotic cells by inhibiting protein synthesis.
2. Hygromycin B inhibits protein synthesis by interfering with translocation and promoting the mistranslation of 70S ribosomes.
3. The effective concentration selected for mammalian cells is usually between 50 μg/ml and 1 mg/ml; for plant cells, the effective concentration is 20-200 μg/ml; for bacteria, the effective concentration is 20-200 μg/ml; For fungi, the effective concentration is 200μg-1 mg/ml.
4. Specific antibiotics used in transfection
5. Hygromycin B phosphotransferase inactivates hygromycin B
6. Cells transfected with hph gene are resistant to hygromycin
7. Transfected cells express the gene stably or temporarily
