ZeocinTM is produced by Streptomyces verticullus and is part of the structurally related group of bleomycin/phleomycin type antibiotics. The cytotoxic action results from Zeocins ability to cause fragmentation of DNA. The antibiotic binds to DNA through its amino terminal peptide, and the activated complex generates free radicals that are responsible for the scission of the DNA chanin. Zeocin is used as a selective marker for the incorporation of the Sh ble gene. Zeocin is trademark of Cayla.
