Bacterial Proteome Characterization for Efficient Spinosad Synthesis

Bacteria are valuable sources of the active ingredients found in many commercial and therapeutic preparations used globally, including antibiotics and insecticides. Harvesting these compounds requires careful attention to optimal growth conditions in order to switch the micro-organisms into the correct synthetic pathways. Yang et al. recently characterized the proteome of Saccharopolyspora spinosa, a Gram-positive, soil-derived actinomycete that Read the rest of this article
