We previously reported that a 4.2 kb SacI-EcoRI DNA region from Streptomyces kasugaensis M338-M1, a kasugamycin (KSM) producer, included KSM transporter genes (kasKLM). As an extension of that study, a 3.7 kb Psti-SacI DNA region, located at 1.5 approximately 5.2 kb upstream of kasK, was cloned and sequenced, revealing three complete open reading frames, designated kasT, kasU and kasJ. The kasJ gene encodes a protein (KasJ) with a conserved dinucleotide (FAD)-binding motif Homology search for… CONTINUE READING
