To elucidate the repression mechanism of ammonium ions on the biosynthesis of tylosin in Streptomyces fradiae NRRL 2702, enzyme activities involved in the metabolism of the aspartate family of amino acids were evaluated in relation to the ammonium ion concentration and tylosin production. It was found that aspartate aminotransferase was essential for both… CONTINUE READING
