Identification, characterization and molecular adaptation of class I redox systems for the production of hydroxylated diterpenoids


BACKGROUND De novo production of multi-hydroxylated diterpenoids is challenging due to the lack of efficient redox systems. RESULTS In this study a new reductase/ferredoxin system from Streptomyces afghaniensis (AfR·Afx) was identified, which allowed the Escherichia coli-based production of the trihydroxylated diterpene cyclooctatin, a potent inhibitor of… (More)
