Spectinomycin Dihydrochloride Pentahydrate Application Notes Spectinomycin is an aminocyclitol antibiotic derived from Streptomyces spectabilis. It has been shown to have a wide variety of uses, including treating acute gonorrheal urethritis and cervictis, to mark cell layers to monitor cell fate during leaf development, as a selection marker in plant related transformation systems for plant cells containing the marker gene Spcr, to study respiratory tract infections of cattle caused by Pasteurella multocida and Mannheimia haemolytica, and to generate plants deficient for the plastid-encoded RNA polymerase on MS-agar media. Spectinomycin also has use in amplification of low copy number plasmid carrying replicons.
