I recently read that gentamycin and G418 (Geneticin) are quite similar in
nature. If I am transfecting cells which are growing in a medium containing
gentamycin and I'm inserting a gene which allows selection with G418 - what
are the chances that the cells I'm left with are the transfected ones ?
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
