A group of antibiotic substances produced by Streptomyces variants. They are composed of an aminosugar and different polypeptide chains and may have broad spectrum antimicrobial and some antiviral properties. Streptothricin antibiotic Nourseothricin (NTC) is used for a broad spectrum of viruses, bacteria and other unicellular or complex organisms. Preferred selection antibiotic for genetically modified Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeast, filamentous fungi, protozoa, plants and many more. Selection of recombinant strains is based on inactivation of NTC by monoacetylation of ß-amino group of the ß-lysine by Nouresothricin N-acetyltransferase the product of the sat1 gene.
