General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
3"(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenyltransferase
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
3"(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenylyl transferase
Biological function
The aadA gene confers resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics such as spectinomycin and streptomycin. The enzyme adenylates either the 3'-hydroxy on the amino-hexose III ring of streptomycin or the 9-hydroxyl on the actinamine ring of spectinomycin  Typically used as a marker gene.
