2 Selectable Markers

3 Selectable Markers Ampicillin Binds to and inhibits a number of enzymes in the bacterial membrane that are involved in the synthesis of the gram- negative cell wall Prevents proper cell replication The ampicillin resistance gene ( bla ) codes for the enzyme β - lactamase Secreted into the periplasmic space of the bacterium where it catalyzes hydrolysis of the β -lactam ring of the ampicillin Ampicillin β -lactam ring penicillin (core) http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Penicillin-core.png http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Ampicillin-2D-skeletal.png www.elecuter.co.uk/. ../md/penicillin.gif

4 Tetracycline Binds to a protein of the 30S subunit of the ribosome Inhibits binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to ribosomal A-site This interferes with ribosomal translocation along the mRNA preventing protein translation The tetracycline resistance gene ( tet R ) encodes an outer membrane associated protein of gram-negative cells that prevents the antibiotic from entering the cell The drug resistance gene does not destroy the antibiotic www.sigmaaldrich.com/Area_of_Interest/The_Americas/Canada.html

5 Chloramphenicol Binds to the ribosomal 50S subunit Inhibits translation on the 50S ribosomal subunit at the peptidyltransferase step (elongation inhibition) The chloramphenicol resistance gene ( cmr ) codes for chloroamphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) CAT is a tetrameric cytosolic protein that, in the presence of acetyl coenzyme A catalyzes the formation of a derivative of chloramphenicol that are unable to bind to the ribosome www.sigmaaldrich.com/Area_of_Interest/The_Americas/Canada.html

6 Kanamycin and neomycin Bind to ribosomal components Inhibit protein synthesis The kan R gene codes for a protein that is secreted into the periplasmic space and interferes with the transport of these antibiotics into the cell Kanamycin Neomycin www.labsupplymall.com/. ../Biotech/images/kan.gif www.bio-world.com/images/714179.jpg

7 Streptomycin Inhibits prokaryote protein synthesis Causes mRNA misreading and inhibits chain initiation – Binds to S 12 protein of 30S ribosomal subunit, preventing the transition from initiation complex to chain-elongating ribosome, causing miscoding or inhibiting initiation Many other antibiotic resistance genes are also used in
