Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
3"(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenylyl transferase
EN
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.
