Sulfate salt of an antibiotic complex produced by fermentation. Three closely related components that are chemically amino-saccharides. White to buff-colored powder. pH (4% solution) 3.5 to 5.5. Odorless.
Inhibits protein synthesis by binding to L6 protein of 50S ribosomal subunit. Antibacterial.
Antibiotic complex consists of three closely related components, gentamicins C1, C2, C1a, and also gentamicin A which differs from the other members of the complex but is similar to Kanamycin C.
Gentamicin C1: R1=R2=CH3
Gentamicin C2: R1=CH3; R2=H
Gentamicin C1A: R1=R2=H
White to buff-colored powder
