Displaying results 1 to 10.

1. Aglycon (aglucone)
This is the non-carbohydrate part of a glycoside .

2. Aminoglycoside antibiotics
A group of antibacterial drugs (such as kanamycin , neomycin and streptomycin ) which are mostly produced by fungi and which contain an amino sugar , and amino- or guanido-substituted inositol ring, and other sugar residues. They are all broad-spectrum antibiotic s that inhibit bacterial protein synthesis by binding to their ribosome s. However, all these drugs are toxic to humans and aren't used except in special situations.

3. Aminoglycoside-3'-phosphotransferase (APH)
A bacterial enzyme which confers resistance to the antibiotic neomycin .The APH gene is used as a selectable marker in genetic experiments, whereby bacterial cells which do not have the gene are eliminated from a population and thus selected against when exposed to neomycin.

4. Arbutin
A glycoside found in the bearberry and related plants which has been used to treat urinary-tract diseases.

5. Gentamycin
One of a group of aminoglycoside antibiotic s which are derived from members of the bacterial genus Micromonospora and which are used against certain strains of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

6. Globoside
An organic macromolecule, a type of oligomeric glycoside , containing a number of different sugar groups which is found in the red blood cell s of certain mammals, including humans, pigs, and sheep.

7. Glycoside
An organic molecule with a glycosyl group (organic chemical group derived from a sugar or starch molecule) connected to it by way of an intervening oxygen atom.

8. Kanamycin
An antibiotic of the aminoglycoside family that poisons translation by binding to the ribosome s.

9. Kasugamycin (kasumin)
An aminoglycoside antibiotic used against bacteria and some fungi ; it is unusual because it is bacteriostatic (inhibits bacterial growth and reproduction) rather than bacteriocidal.

10. Ototoxicity
Ototoxicity refers to complications of or damage the auditory (hearing) and/or vestibular systems due to an ingested/absorbed substance. Ototoxins include some drugs such as salicylates (ASA), aminoglycosides, loop diuretics, and some anti-cancer drugs.
