Gene cluster in Micromonospora echinospora ATCC15835 for the biosynthesis of the gentamicin C complex.
Gentamicin is a 4,6-disubstituted aminocyclitol antibiotic complex synthesised by some members of the actinomycete genus Micromonospora. In a search for the gentamicin biosynthetic gene cluster weExpand
