cycloheximide

Antibiotic (MW 281) isolated from Streptomyces griseus . Blocks eukaryotic (but not prokaryotic) protein synthesis by preventing initiation and elongation on 80S ribosomes. Commonly used experimentally.

Cycloheximide

An antibiotic synthesised by streptomycete bacteria which inhibits protein synthesis in eucaryotic cells.

Cycloheximide

Cycloheximide is an inhibitor of protein biosynthesis in eukaryotic organisms, produced by the bacterium Streptomyces griseus. Cycloheximide exerts its effect by interfering with the translocation step in protein synthesis (movement of two tRNA molecules and mRNA in relation to the ribosome) thus blocking translational elongation. Cycloheximide is...
