Blasticidin S HCl is a potent inhibitor of protein synthesis in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Blasticidin S Hydrochloride belongs to a group of cytosine amino nucleoside antibiotics. It has a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity and acts on prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms by inhibiting protein synthesis.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
