Cycloheximide, Crystalline

Cyclohexamide (CHX, Actidione, Naramycin) is widely used for selection of yeast and fungii. Inhibition of yeast is conducted through the translation inhibition in eukaryotes resulting in arrested cell growth and death. Cyclohexamide inhibits protein biosynthesis in eukaryotic cells by binding with the 80S ribosome.

Appications Cycloheximide is commonly used in brewery environments to prevent the growth of brewers yeast in culture media. Additions of cycloheximide to brewing culture media can increase media selectivity and reduce occurrence of unwanted and errant yeast and mold growth.

Products so identified must ship as hazardous materials (HAZMAT). We welcome you to contact our Customer Service department for additional details about HAZMAT shipping requirements and surcharge fees. In general, HAZMAT fees apply whenever shipped by either UPS or FedEx, currently $44.00 per shipping carton for ground shipment. Air shipments require a $130.00 fee. To avoid most HAZMAT fees, if your order contains hazardous materials that require four or more shipping cartons, we will route via common carrier, which may not have any, or have greatly reduced, HAZMAT fees. Additionally, some products identified as HAZMAT may qualify for “Limited Quantity” regulations, eliminating the need for HAZMAT fees. HAZMAT orders are exempted from our 1-2-3 Day Delivery Program.
