Abstract

A 15 kb DNA fragment from the chromosome between and has been sequenced, and new ORFs encoding putative enzymes involved in lipopolypeptide synthesis, which complete a partial operon previously reported, and a new set of enzymes responsible for lipid metabolism have been identified. From the analysis of DNA sequence homology of the fragment it was deduced that these new peptide synthetase genes are part of an operon for the biosynthesis of the fungicide fengycin.
