Insertional inactivation of sanP and analysis of nikkomycin production. (A) Diagram of sanP gene disruption in S. ansochromogenes TH322. A kanamycin antibiotic resistance cassette was inserted into the Bam HI site of sanP. (B) Bioassay and HPLC analysis of nikkomycin production. X, nikkomycin X; Z, nikkomycin Z; 1, culture filtrates from TH322; 2, culture filtrates from sanPDM; 3, culture filtrates from the complementary strain; 4, culture filtrates from sanPDM feeding with 2 g/L uracil. The strains were inoculated in liquid SP medium for 144 h.
