From a cosmid library of Streptomyces cyanogenus S136, DNA fragments encompassing approximately 35 kb of the presumed landomycin biosynthetic gene cluster were identified and sequenced, revealing 32 open reading frames most of which could be assigned through data base comparison.
BACKGROUND The granaticins are members of the benzoisochromanequinone class of aromatic polyketides, the best known member of which is actinorhodin made by Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2). Genetic analysis of this class of compounds has played a major role in the development of hypotheses about the way in which aromatic polyketide synthases (PKSs) control(More)
The multifunctional 6-methylsalicylic acid synthase gene from Penicillium patulum was engineered for regulated expression in Streptomyces coelicolor. Production of significant amounts of 6-methylsalicylic acid by the recombinant strain was proven by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. These results suggest that it is possible to harness the molecular(More)
The phage growth limitation (Pgl) system of Streptomyces coelicolor confers resistance to phi C31 and its homoimmune phages. The positions of the pgl genes within a 16-kb clone of S. coelicolor DNA were defined by subcloning, insertional inactivation, and deletion mapping. Nucleotide sequencing and functional analysis identified two genes, pglY and pglZ,(More)
A mutation in actVI-ORF1, which controls C-3 reduction in actinorhodin biosynthesis by Streptomyces coelicolor, was complemented by gra-ORF5 and -ORF6 from the granaticin biosynthetic gene cluster of Streptomyces violaceoruber Tü22. It is hypothesized that, while gra-ORF5 alone is a ketoreductase for C-9, gra-ORF6 gives the enzyme regiospecificity also for(More)
A gene (bar) was identified adjacent to the hrdD sigma factor gene in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2). The predicted bar product showed 32.2% and 30.4% identity to those of the pat and bar genes of the bialaphos (Bp) producers Streptomyces viridochromogenes and Streptomyces hygroscopicus, respectively; these genes encode phosphinothricin (PPT)(More)
SAS® Global Forum has offered attendees the ability to search the contents of the papers being presented prior to the conference. This searchable access has parameters: title, author, abstract, keywords, and the conference section. Current semantic analysis technologies make it possible to leverage the natural language processing methods, organizational and(More)
This paper discusses how two SAS technologies – Text Analytics and Content Categorization Suite-were used to generate comprehensive and dynamic categories and clusters of the entire corpus of SAS user presentations from inception to the present. The goal of the two approaches is to improve access to the conference proceedings for SAS users and conference(More)
BACKGROUND Modular polyketide synthases (PKSs), such as 6-deoxyerythronolide B synthase (DEBS), are large multifunctional enzymes that catalyze the biosynthesis of structurally complex and medically important natural products. Active sites within these assemblies are organized into 'modules', such that each module catalyzes the stereospecific addition of a(More)
