Paromomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces rimosus. It targets a variety of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria as well as several protozoan species. It displays activity similar to that of neomycin.
Aminoglycoside antibiotics are composed of amino groups attached to glycosides. They bind the 30s ribosomal subunit, causing misreading of the mRNA sequence and inhibition of translocation. Consequently, protein synthesis is inhibited.
Paromomycin sulfate is freely soluble.
