Genetic regulation of secondary metabolic pathways in Streptomyces.

Abstract

Streptomyces species are (along with the fungi) the best-known antibiotic-producing organisms. Often, they make several different antibiotics. The biosynthesis of each antibiotic is encoded by a complex gene cluster that usually also contains regulatory and resistance genes. Typically, there may be more than one such pathway-specific regulatory gene per… (More)
