AmfS, a class III lantipeptide serves as a morphogen in Streptomyces griseus. Here, we constructed a high production system of AmfS in S. griseus. We isolated S. griseus Grd1 strain defective in glucose repression of aerial mycelium formation and found it suitable for the overproduction of AmfS. Two expression vectors carrying the strong and constitutive(More)
