Biosynthetic Gene Cluster for the Peptide Antibiotic Enduracidin
Technology Description To produce a library of S. fungicidicus mutants, an in vitro transposon-based method was devised to randomly insert a selectable marker and oriT element in fosmid inserts carrying segments of the enramycin biosynthetic gene cluster and adjacent regions. This library of mutagenized fosmids was screened to identify specific dis...
