Escherichia coli strains are used in secondary metabolism research for DNA cloning and transferring plasmids by intergeneric conjugation. Non-restricting strains are desirable for DNA cloning and non-methylating strains are beneficial for transferring DNA to methyl-restricting hosts, like Streptomyces coelicolor. We have constructed a non-methylating E.(More)
Lipstatin, isolated from Streptomyces toxytricini as a potent and selective inhibitor of human pancreatic lipase, is a precursor for tetrahydrolipstatin (also known as orlistat, Xenical, and Alli), the only FDA-approved antiobesity medication for long-term use.
