New polyene macrolide S44HP was purified from the culture of recombinant Streptomyces noursei strain with engineered nystatin polyketide synthase. S44HP, nystatin (NYS), and amphotericin B (Amph-B) were tested against 19 clinical fungal isolates in agar diffusion assay, which demonstrated clear differences in antifungal activities of these antibiotics.(More)
A system for introduction of plasmids into industrial producers of antibiotics chlortetracycline and bialaphos using intergeneric conjugation of Escherichia coli and Streptomyces was developed. Low level stability of inheritance of autonomously replicating DNA in recipient strains was shown. Site-specific integration of the conjugative-integrative vector(More)
Studies of regulation of antibiotic synthesis involved both basic and applied aspects of biology of antibiotic producers. This paper is a survey of published experimental data and key hypotheses for the regulation of antibiotic synthesis in bacteria of the genus Streptomyces. Summarized data on transcriptional regulatory systems of gene clusters responsible(More)
The mutants of Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 resistant to fosfomycin, a toxic analogue of phosphoenolpyruvate, were obtained. The mutants exhibited increased reducing activity and higher rates of lactate utilization. A correlation was shown between the rates of metabolism of oxidized substrates and the rate of reduction of methylene blue, a mediator of(More)
Electrogenicity of Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 mutants FRS1 and FRB1 with reducing activity 30–40% higher than in the original strain was studied in various microbial fuel cells (MFC) developed in the course of the work. The voltage and current density developed by the mutants were 1.7 times higher than in the case of S. oneidensis MR-1. A correlation was(More)
Electrochemical parameters of bacterial cells Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 were investigated. For registration of the direct electron transfer between S. oneidensis MR-1 and electrode, bacterial cells were pretreated with didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB), a synthetic membrane-like substance of polycationic nature that exhibits membrane-loosening(More)
A highly potent strain of Bacillus licheniformis 103 that synthesized thermostable alpha-amylase with temperature and pH optima of 90-95 degrees C and 6.0-8.5, respectively, was obtained by mutagenesis and selection. The composition of fermentation media and conditions for submerged cultivation of the producer were optimized. alpha-Amylase whose activity(More)
A method for chromatographic separation and quantitative determination of individual components of the antibiotic virginiamycin, produced by microbiological synthesis (Streptomyces virginiae strain 147), is described. The components, M1-2 and S1-5, were isolated from fermentation broth and identified by HPTLC and HPLC (the results obtained using the two(More)
Conditions for preparation and regeneration of protoplasts in a commercial strain of the culture producing chlortetracycline and its derivatives were determined. The protoplasting level depended on the conditions of the mycelium cultivation and composition of a regeneration medium. Under the optimal conditions it amounted up to 10(6) protoplasts/ml. A(More)
