Does anyone have any kirromycin that we might use/borrow?
I've been trying to get some from Sigma since May, but its release
date has been postponed 3 times. Now it's supposed to be available in
I'd like to do an experiment before then that needs gram amounts of
kirromycin. The experiment would involve spreading single-celled algae on
kirromycin-containing agar in petri dishes to select for
kirromycin-resistant mutants that may have mutations in the tufA gene.
Assuming we can eventually get kirromycin from Sigma, we could pay you
back with a fresh batch of the antibiotic.
Please reply via email.
