Hygromycin used as a selection marker in cells engineered with Hygromycin resistant gene.

Species: Human

Hygromycin was used as a selection marker for few eukaryotic cells which were engineered with Hygromycin resistant gene. Product works beautifully to inhibit translation and killing non resistant strains giving it desirable specificity.
