Application Notes

Puromycin dihydrochloride is a salt of puromycin, a nucleoside antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces alboniger in the 1950s as an anti-trypansomal agent with antibiotic activity. While the salt shares the same pharmacological properties as puromycin free base, its greater water solubility offers advantages in some in vitro applications. Physicochemical properties and chromatographic behaviour will depend on whether the pH is buffered. In non-pH controlled systems, the free base and salt may behave differently.
