Mode of Action

Binds and cleaves DNA

Mechanism of Resistance

The product of the Sh ble gene binds to phleomycin and inhibits its ability to cleave DNA


After transformation incubate culture in YPD at 30 C for 6 hours to overnight, then chill on ice for 1 hour. Plate on YPD (pH 7) containing 10 mg/L phleomycin.

Phleomycin is pH sensitive--it loses its effect at low pH. When making phleomycin plates add 2 pellets of NaOH per liter to get the pH above 7.

The stock solution is 20 ug/mL (2000X), is light blue and is stored at -20 C. It should be stable for 1 year.

The best price I've found is through Invivogen
