Biosynthesis of the antibiotic tropodithietic acid by the marine bacterium Phaeobacter inhibens

Author affiliations

Abstract

The biosynthesis of tropodithietic acid was investigated using a combinatorial approach of feeding experiments, gene knockouts and bioinformatic analyses. The mechanism of sulfur introduction is distinct from known mechanisms in holomycin, thiomarinol A and gliotoxin biosynthesis.
