Inactivation of putative PKS genes can double geldanamycin yield in Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997

Y. H. Li, Li, M., He, W. Q., Wang, Y. G., and Shao, R. G., Inactivation of putative PKS genes can double geldanamycin yield in Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997, vol. 12, pp. 2076-2085, 2013.

The putative polyketide biosynthesis (PKS) genes cos10 and pg10 were inactivated by insertion of a kanamycin-resistance gene into the genome of the geldanamycin-producing strain, Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997. The resultant inactivation were confirmed by PCR analysis. The abilities of the PKS gene inactivation strains to produce geldanamycin were compared with the natural geldanamycin- producing strain, S. hygroscopicus 17997.
