With the application of genome-based technologies to Streptomyces biology, there are now signs that the disparate strands of different research programs are beginning to come together. It is well known that histones play important roles in nucleus packing, chromatin structure, and gene transcription in eukaryotes, and analogous roles are played by bacterial nucleoid-associated proteins (NAPs), which are significant regulators of nucleoid physical structure and gene transcription (283). A colony is brought into contact with the droplet, and the solvent-extractable molecules are drawn off and subjected to MS-MS. Covarying fragments are used to identify particular molecular species. The S. coelicolor adpA mRNA is a target for processing by RNase III (152) and contains a bldA-dependent UUA codon (adpA is the only gene present in all streptomycetes that always has a TTA codon). 6). All Rights Reserved. The functions of the proteasome and its individual components have been investigated in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A recent extensive survey of the PhoP regulon, using microarray analysis of chromatin immunoprecipitated with anti-PhoP antiserum, concluded that, in addition to activating pathways for phosphate scavenging and for cell wall polymer biosynthesis, PhoP mediates the transient shutdown of central metabolic pathways, some secondary metabolic pathways, and repressors of morphological differentiation (56) (Fig. It is presumed that RedD activates red biosynthetic genes directly, and a putative target site for RedD (repeats of the tetramer TCAG at 11-bp intervals) has been identified upstream of the large red operon that starts with redP (28). SARPs are a specific family of paralogous proteins that show a high specificity for antibiotic production in actinomycetes. Zhang, P., L. Wu, Y. Zhu, M. Liu, Y. Wang, G. Cao, X. L. Chen, M. Tao, and X. Pang (2017) Deletion of MtrA inhibits cellular development of Streptomyces coelicolor and alters expression of developmental regulatory genes. CpkO has an N-terminal SARP domain and an additional C-terminal domain of unknown function. It was suggested that the resulting increase in ScbA and ScbR production has two consequences: a heterodimer of the two proteins is thought to form and then bind to a different site upstream of scbA to activate scbA transcription further, and SCB levels burgeon, sequestering all free ScbR protein and releasing cpkO from repression (41) (Fig. The angucycline antibiotic jadomycin B (JdB) produced by Streptomyces venezuelae has been found here to induce complex survival responses in Streptomyces coelicolor at subinhibitory concentration. Thank you for sharing this Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews article. Its biosynthesis is determined by five transcription units in the act gene cluster, four of which contain more than one gene. Clearly there is a need to investigate both the molecular basis of ARR-ligand interactions and their broader significance in relation to antibiotic production. He has published more than 120 papers in his research field. It has been suggested that these clusters may generally determine responses of secondary metabolism and development to environmental signals associated with particular ecological niches (191). In addition, there are indications of binding of the nitrogen regulator GlnR (34) and proteins corresponding to SCO0310, -3932, and -5405 (38). MmyB can then activate the MM biosynthetic genes. Basic cellular physiology (including nutrition, stress, developmental stage, and population density) plays a leading part in determining whether antibiotic production can go ahead, and the transmission of signals to specific sets of pathway genes involves conserved positively and negatively acting regulators, some of which are subject to regulation by small-molecule ligands or by phosphorylation. Chater, K. F. (2001) Regulation of sporulation in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2): a checkpoint multiplex? The phenotypic changes may be made difficult to interpret and reproduce if the mutation influences the bistable switch. atrA is regulated by the PhoRP system, providing a link with phosphate availability, and a further nutritional link is provided by the activation by AtrA of nagE2, encoding the GlcNAc permease. Acad. It has been pointed out that all the examples of large SARP CSRs are in pathways for antifungal antibiotics, leading to the suggestion that such SARPs might recognize a common signal related to this antifungal activity (220). The PhoR protein is a membrane sensor kinase, whereas PhoP is a DNA-binding response regulator (OmpR family). Eng. Regulation of methylenomycin biosynthesis, a cascade involving furan autoregulators. 6). Abstract. Targets in S. coelicolor and S. griseus include a considerable number of genes involved in secondary metabolism and morphological differentiation, though the spectrum of target genes is not completely congruent in the two species (30, 177). Unusually, the A-factor autoregulatory system in S. griseus is determined not by genes close to the streptomycin biosynthetic gene cluster but by scattered genes (afsA and brpA for A-factor biosynthesis and arpA for the A-factor receptor protein ArpA) (177). The initial discovery of SCBs was made possible by their stimulatory effects on pigmented antibiotic production when added exogenously to S. coelicolor cultures, though, paradoxically, eliminating endogenous SCBs by scbA deletion enhanced ACT and RED production (49). Phosphate Regulation of Antibiotic Production in S. coelicolorUnder laboratory conditions, phosphate limitation of growing cultures activates phosphate scavenging and induces the growth transition that precedes stationary phase and secondary metabolism (70), (71). Chitin is very abundant in soil and is likely to be a major source of carbon and nitrogen for streptomycetes (89). Regulatory interactions are indicated by bold arrows (activation steps) or bold lines ending with a bar (repressing or inhibitory steps). Regulation of the “Cryptic Polyketide” Gene ClusterThe cpk cluster directs production of a polyketide-derived antibiotic (“cryptic polyketide” [CPK]) and a (presumably related) yellow pigment (yCPK) whose structures are still undetermined (41, 42). So far, he has published more than 30 papers in this research field. PubMed  He maintains the StrepDB website (with on average 13,000 hits per week), thus providing genome-based bioinformatic support to the worldwide actinomycete community. PubMed  Since the onset of secondary metabolite biosynthesis occurs during the transition, it is possible that ribosome and tRNA degradation are related to secondary metabolism, with the further possibility that the 30- to 35-nt RNA species could be signaling molecules for secondary metabolism and morphological differentiation. Regulated proteolysis in Gram-negative bacteria—how and when? Another developmental gene, wblA, encodes one of 11 S. coelicolor proteins of the Wbl (WhiB-like) family (195). As an autoregulator, HpdR regulates its own transcription (not shown). Other regulators also affect CPK biosynthesis. Heterologous Expression in Engineered HostsKnowledge of regulatory factors has informed another method of activating cryptic gene clusters, i.e., heterologous expression of the cluster in different host strains, which is also often used to confirm the integrity of gene clusters synthesizing secondary metabolites (263–265) and for combinatorial biosynthesis to produce novel derivatives of bioactive secondary metabolites. PubMed Central  Clearly, current knowledge is only the tip of the iceberg. Phosphorylation of PhoP presumably enhances DNA binding. See the text for further details and references. Thus, PhoP-mediated regulation of ptsS was observed only at very high levels of extracellular carbon sources (80), and PhoP-repressible genes include several involved in nitrogen metabolism, notably glnR, whose product is the major nitrogen regulator of primary metabolism (83, 84), providing a means of adjusting nitrogen metabolism to phosphate availability. In a further level of regulation of (p)ppGpp production, the transcription of relA itself responds to nitrogen limitation through the agency of an extracytoplasmic function (ECF) sigma factor, SigT (102). Global RegulatorsThe S. coelicolor studies have shown that numerous global regulators transmit various signal inputs, including nutrient availability, translation rates, developmental state, diverse stresses, and other environmental information, to the CSR genes. This response is somehow enhanced by the AfsQ1-dependent expression of the sigQ gene, which diverges from the afsQ1Q2Q3 operon (34). Examples include goadsporin, a 19-aa peptide containing four oxazole and two thiazole residues produced by Streptomyces sp. They have often been found as CSRs in Streptomyces spp. 1) involves huge modular nonribosomal peptide synthetases that generate peptide antibiotics, a class that, like polyketides, has received much attention from natural products scientists. 116: 43–49. Chem. Regulation of redZ has some features in common with that of actII-ORF4: both are direct targets for repression by AbsA2∼P (31, 32), binding of DasR and AfsQ1 to the redZ promoter suggests that the promoter may respond to GlcNAc (33) and a glutamate-related signal (34), and redZ mRNA contains a bldA-dependent UUA codon, which appears to be the reason for the bldA dependence of RED production (67, 68). He has published more than 200 primary research papers. There can be few documented cases of comparably complex regulation of a bacterial promoter, and it will be a challenge for the future to unravel the large number of possible interactions involving regulators binding at separate or overlapping sites. Ryding, N. J., T. B. Anderson, and W. C. Champness (2002) Regulation of the Streptomyces coelicolor calcium-dependent antibiotic by absA, encoding a cluster-linked two-component system. The regulatory cascade is complicated by the presence of genes for two ArpA-like proteins (MmyR and MmfR). Comparative genomic analysis of 14 sequenced Streptomyces genomes (G. Chandra and K. F. Chater, unpublished data) has shown that most of the global regulators described in the preceding sections are universal among streptomycetes, with an exception being the whiJ cluster and some of its paralogous clusters. The N-terminal winged helix-turn-helix (HTH) DNA-binding motif of SARPs binds repeated motifs (often heptamers) at an 11-nt spacing, and the adjacent transcriptional activation domain switches on the expression of target antibiotic production genes (29). Under these circumstances, a transient arrest of growth typically ensues, accompanied by a complex series of changes in global gene expression. Acquisition of global regulators during the evolution of streptomycetes. The authors equally contributed to this study. S. coelicolor A3(2), the genetically best-characterized strain Some pathways involve more than one SARP, forming parts of cascades of pathway-specific regulatory steps (e.g., tylosin and nangchangmycin [see above]) (203, 206). Proteasomes are large self-compartmentalized proteases found in archaea, eukaryotes, and certain actinobacteria, including Streptomyces, Frankia, and Mycobacterium (275, 278–280). This autoregulatory organization presumably leads to a sudden accumulation of autoregulator. Signal input and cross talk are coordinated in part by regulatory cascades and in part by the convergence of regulators upon common target promoters, especially those of cluster-situated regulators. Hara, H., Y. Ohnishi, and S. Horinouchi (2009) DNA microarray analysis of global gene regulation by A-factor in Streptomyces griseus. 128: 635–659. Guoqing Niu obtained his Ph.D. in microbial genetics in 2006 at the Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Other two-component systems influencing antibiotic production, but not closely linked to antibiotic biosynthetic genes, include the following: CutRS, affecting ACT production (138); EcrA1A2 (SCO2517 and -8), affecting only RED production (139); SCO0203/0204, which interplay with the orphan RR SCO3818 in exerting medium-dependent effects on ACT production (140, 141); and SCO5784 and -5, affecting the timing of ACT and RED production and sporulation, possibly through effects on ppGpp synthesis (142). For example, virginiae butanolides (VBs) (Fig. Streptomyces species produce a vast diversity of secondary metabolites of clinical and biotechnological importance, in particular antibiotics. Protein Degradation MachineryTranscriptional regulators or response proteins in antibiotic regulatory cascades may have to be removed after the fulfillment of their responsibilities, by target-specific or nonspecific proteases. The acquisition or loss of sequences in promoters, increasing or decreasing the affinity of regulatory proteins, causes modest species-specific variation in the regulons controlled by conserved regulators, and some such changes may account for important species-specific differences in the phenotypes of regulatory mutants (242). The ActII-ORF4 determinant is embedded in the act cluster. Examples include Aur1R from Streptomyces aureofaciens and BarB from Streptomyces virginiae. The pleiotropic effects of A-factor in S. griseus are manifested entirely via AdpA. All of these have the same three major functional domains: an N-terminal SARP domain, a central AAA domain (ATPase associated with diverse cellular activities) (230), and a conserved C-terminal domain of unknown function. For example, SabR of S. ansochromogenes, a regulatory protein encoded away from the san (nikkomycin biosynthesis) cluster, not only activates the CSR sanG, but also represses sporulation. ATP or GTP is used for autophosphorylation by the histidine kinase, and the phosphoryl group is transferred to the RR, which then controls the transcription of target genes. We report the isolation and partial characterization of three new mutants of Streptomyces coelicolor that are defective in morphogenesis and antibiotic production. Curr. Few other streptomycetes have candidate SlbR orthologues, but proteins with moderate end-to-end similarity are present in about half the species that have been subjected to genome sequencing. 183: 4357–4363. A. Vroom, and C. M. Kao (2008) A key developmental regulator controls the synthesis of the antibiotic erythromycin in Saccharopolyspora erythraea. A second regulatory gene in the act cluster (actR) encodes a TetR-like protein that represses the adjacent actA operon, encoding the ACT export system (actA also contains a TTA codon) (39). (A) The compounds from S. coelicolor. Thus, the pathways for different polyethers have different regulatory strategies. In a homeostatic feedback loop, PhoP regulates levels of the PstS transporter, which, in turn, probably influences PhoP phosphorylation (80). This paper was also supported by Konkuk University Researcher Fund in 2018. The global regulators control both central metabolic genes and CSR genes, either directly (solid lines) or through unknown routes (dotted lines). Early genetic studies, starting in the 1950s, established a map of the Streptomyces coelicolor chromosome that included genes for antibiotic production and morphological development. TylR, a homologue of CSRs for carbomycin and spiramycin biosynthesis (205), is the direct activator of the tylosin biosynthetic genes. Appl. Ulanova, D., S. Kitani, E. Fukusaki, and T. Nihira (2013) SdrA, a new DeoR family regulator involved in Streptomyces avermitilis morphological development and antibiotic production. To avoid confusion, we emphasize here that the term SARP does not apply to the many other kinds of cluster-situated regulators of antibiotic biosynthesis, most of which have paralogues in diverse organisms and other physiological contexts. These complex data sets will be difficult to interpret until samples are also examined during the antibiotic production phase, and progress has been made on the molecular basis of glucose kinase effects. 115: 167–172. Gene. Front. Numbers refer to the transcription start site (+1) defined by Gramajo et al. A thorough review of this topic is included in reference 20. FEMS Microbiol. Members of the bacterial genus Streptomyces synthesize the majority of known microbial antibiotics, as well as a number of other products that have been shown to exhibit useful biolog-ical activities. The red boxes indicate residues corresponding to the conserved residues of conventional response regulators. Under submerged liquid culture conditions (such as are used in industrial antibiotic production fermentations), such morphological differentiation does not usually take place. Virginiae butanolides (VBs) induce the coordinated production of virginiamycin M and virginiamycin S, synergistically acting but biosynthetically distinct antibiotics in S. virginiae (235). Recent developments in metabolic engineering, synthetic and systems biology have opened new opportunities to exploit Streptomyces secondary metabolism, but achieving industry-level production without time-consuming optimization has … Mutations in rpsL enhanced protein synthesis during late growth phase (254). Acta Crystallogr. Chakraburtty, R. and M. Bibb (1997) The ppGpp synthetase gene (relA) of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) plays a conditional role in antibiotic production and morphological differentiation. Unlike CSR SARPs, these are all present in a significant fraction of streptomycetes. Methylenomycin A (MM) is an epoxycyclopentenone made by an unusual pathway encoded by 11 genes located on the linear plasmid SCP1 (57). Diverse antibiotics and autoregulator molecules produced by Streptomyces coelicolor A3 (2) and some other streptomycetes. There appears to be no information about whether endogenous SAM levels increase as growth comes to a stop (for example, if methionine is shunted to SAM biosynthesis when protein synthesis slows down). In a comprehensive recent paper, AfsQ1 has been revealed as a direct repressor of primary nitrogen assimilation genes and as an activator of several antibiotic biosynthetic regulatory (actII-ORF4, redZ, and cdaR) and structural (cpkA and cpkD) genes, as well as regulating some developmental genes (bldM, whiD, and amfC) (34). Surprisingly, this motif was also found upstream of some genes unconnected with RED biosynthesis (28). A more-detailed understanding of NAPs and their modifications is needed to know whether epigenetic modification exists in Streptomyces as prokaryotes. Deletion of the negatively acting CSR gene alpW improved kinamycin production in S. ambofaciens from very low to workable levels (262). Here we provide evidence that antibiotic production in colonies of the multicellular bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor is coordinated by a division of labour. It is suggested that DivIVA-free AfsK in this compartment phosphorylates AfsR. During coculture, M. xanthus enhanced the production of a siderophore, myxochelin, leading M. xanthus to dominate iron scavenging and S. coelicolor to experience iron-restricted conditions. Subsequently, molecular analyses revealed such clusters to be large (typically tens of kilobases) and usually to include several operons (5–7). Although AfsS is usually thought of as a regulator of antibiotic biosynthetic genes, transcriptome analysis showed that it also has major effects on nutritional starvation genes, which might possibly be responsible for the effects on antibiotic production (136). The receptor for JdB was identified as a “pseudo” gamma-butyrolactone receptor, ScbR2, which was shown to bind two previously unidentified target promoters, those of redD … 8: 2013. PhoP also mediates cross talk between cellular responses to phosphate, carbon, and nitrogen availability (Fig. 178: 424–434. Several of the two-component systems implicated in regulating antibiotic production in S. coelicolor are not widely conserved among different species (AbsA1A2, CutRS, AbrA1A2, and SCO5784 and -5). As is clear from this article, transcriptional regulation has been investigated extensively in the production of antibiotics and other secondary metabolites. Nitrogen Regulation of Antibiotic BiosynthesisMutations in the regulatory genes draR and afsQ1 have effects on antibiotic production that are discernible only under nitrogen excess (35, 64, 65). Discovery of New Signaling MoleculesA lack of specific signaling molecules such as gamma-butyrolactones (see above) may be a factor causing the silence of gene clusters. Early genetic mapping in the model organism Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) provided the first evidence that the genes for biosynthesis of any particular antibiotic are clustered on the chromosome (1–3) or plasmids (4). Microbiol. Thus, the available information is consistent with the idea that (p)ppGpp may increase the relative affinity of RNA polymerase for sigma factors that direct the enzyme to genes specific for antibiotic production. Other large SARPs studied genetically include PteR (filipin, S. avermitilis) (233) and PimR (pimaricin, S. natalensis) (220, 234). It has some homology with the conserved linker domain 3 of sigma factors but is unlikely to function as a sigma factor on its own (136). Apart from nutrient effects, the pH and dissolved oxygen level are also important for antibiotic production (16, 17). Sequencing of other Streptomyces genomes showed that this was typical and that the majority of clusters are species specific among the genomes analyzed (8). This negative effect is counterintuitive since phosphate limitation activates production of ACT and RED, an effect mediated by enhanced transcription of the relevant biosynthetic genes. Only one of the paralogues, SCO4944, is widely conserved in other streptomycetes, and in S. griseus this gene is just one gene away from the biosynthetic gene for A-factor and is regulated by A-factor (61). The sequenced gene sets provide an opportunity to study the regulation of antibiotic biosynthesis at the molecular level, illuminating the complex developmental interplay of antibiotic production with morphological differentiation in these mycelial, sporulating bacteria. Streptomyces is the largest genus of Actinobacteria and the type genus of the family Streptomycetaceae. Biotechnol Bioproc E 24, 613–621 (2019). This approach provides an opportunity to characterize and compare the NAPs associated with the active and repressive portions of the nucleoid (289). MmyB paralogues are widespread among actinomycetes and particularly among streptomycetes. In general, when bound to a target site, AdpA recruits RNA polymerase and activates transcription, though some targets (like adpA itself) are repressed by AdpA (176). The multilocus phylogeny on which the diagram is based was derived from a catenated set of seven conserved proteins (AtpD, DnaA, DnaG, DnaK, GyrB, RecA, and RpoB) (G. Chandra, unpublished data). Curr Microbiol. Similar ATPase domains are also present in CdaR and in two other SARPs of unknown function encoded in the S. coelicolor genome (see below). It is not in use pharmaceutically at this point, but it may be used as a starting material to make new antibiotics. Enter multiple addresses on separate lines or separate them with commas. Santamarta, I., A. Rodriguez-Garcia, R. Perez-Redondo, J. F. Martin, and P. Liras (2002) CcaR is an autoregulatory protein that binds to the ccaR and cefD-cmcI promoters of the cephamycin C-clavulanic acid cluster in Streptomyces clavuligerus. The first molecular analyses of biosynthetic gene clusters showed that they usually contain regulatory genes, often having major effects on the levels of production of the cognate antibiotic. 1). The consequences of this regulation for the bistable switching of CPK biosynthesis mediated by the action of SCBs are not readily predictable (56). Although the overall picture of PhoP-mediated regulation is well established, understanding of the action of PhoP at the molecular level is still limited, apart from the finding that the positions of PHO boxes correlate with positive or negative action (81). Crystallogr 64: 198–205. Since hmaS transcription is reduced in an hpdR mutant, HpdR functions to activate hmaS. The biosynthesis of each antibiotic is specified by a large gene cluster, usually including regulatory genes (cluster-situated regulators [CSRs]). The jadR1 gene is itself directly repressed by an ScbR2-like pseudo-gamma-butyrolactone receptor, JadR2, encoded by the adjacent diverging gene. Of course, some of the wide-ranging effects may be indirect, ranging from the consequences of draining pools of precursors to physicochemical properties of the end products such as redox activity (27). Proc. It is repressed both by its own gene product (170) and, in S. coelicolor, by another pleiotropic regulator, BldD (171). Strains of Streptomyces coelicolor with mutations in the gene ppm1, encoding polyprenol phosphate mannose synthase, and in pmt, encoding a protein O-mannosyltransferase, are resistant to phage ϕC31 and have greatly increased susceptibility to some antibiotics, including vancomycin. DasR can also induce transcription of SCO6264, encoding a reductase believed to play a role in modification of the SCB gamma-butyrolactone signaling molecules (88). Degeneracy of the repeats may make the structure of the targets difficult to characterize, perhaps explaining why the spacers appear to vary from 4 to 15 nt in different targets (216, 217, 219). A Survey of SARPsAs shown above, SARPs are the most frequently encountered CSRs in S. coelicolor and are associated with antibiotic biosynthetic clusters in many other streptomycetes. 10). The binding site for AdpA in DNA targets is rather degenerate (5′-TGGCSNGWWY-3′), and there are about 1,500 direct AdpA-binding sites in the S. griseus chromosome (176). Comparatively few of the regulatory features of clusters from nonmodel organisms have been analyzed experimentally, but where they have been, new concepts usually arise, as we illustrate in this section with a few examples. For example, the coculture of a Streptomyces strain with mycolic acid-containing Tsukamurella pulmonis from soil samples induced the Streptomyces strain to produce a novel antibiotic (249). Acta. Amino Acid Limitation and Ribosome-Mediated EffectsWhen the supply of amino acids becomes rate limiting for protein synthesis, bacteria produce the alarmones guanosine tetraphosphate (ppGpp) and pentaphosphate (pppGpp), which inhibit the synthesis of rRNA and tRNA and activate expression of other genes by altering the RNA polymerase core-binding competitiveness of sigma factors (96). Genomic techniques may also be useful: based on transcriptome analysis, several novel compounds were isolated from Streptomyces flaveolus through screening six different media (248). The feasibility of this concept was first exemplified by the activation of ACT production in S. lividans, in which the act genes are normally not expressed (107). Some of the molecular information described in this review may help to make such explorations increasingly knowledge led and may permit greater interplay between fermentation development and targeted genetic manipulations. The Master Regulator AdpA and Its Interplay with Developmental GenesAdpA is a key transcriptional activator that has been studied biochemically mainly in S. griseus, in which it was discovered (30). PhoR is a membrane-bound sensor kinase that senses phosphate deprivation and then phosphorylates PhoP, its target response regulator, which binds to specific sequences in target promoters (Streptomyces PHO boxes, which are degenerate versions of consensus GTTCACC usually repeated at 11-bp intervals), to influence their expression (56, 78). dnrO is repressed by its own product, DnrO, but once daunorubicin or its glycosylated late precursors are produced, they bind to DnrO, derepressing dnrO and apparently activating dnrN (214). Mutation of rsmG, which encodes a 16S rRNA methyltransferase, elevates protein synthesis and in turn enhances antibiotic production (109). These studies demonstrated that small-molecule epigenetic modifiers are effective tools for modifying biosynthetic pathways and for generating new compounds in fungi. These small, redox- and nitric oxide-sensitive iron-sulfur proteins are widespread in actinobacteria and are absent from all other bacteria (195). The roles of NanR3 (a putative LacI-like repressor) and the NanT5/NanT3 two-component system (206) remain undetermined. Current evidence suggests that both catalytic activity and a specific interaction of the enzyme with glucose permease are involved in glucose repression (91). Another PhoP-repressible gene encodes RpoZ, the omega subunit of RNA polymerase, yet RpoZ is required for normal levels of production of ACT and RED (72). At least in S. lividans, there is even a further level of adpA regulation, since it appears that the antibiotic production-stimulatory effect of the addition of SAM (see above) is at least partly mediated through the UUA codon of adpA mRNA, perhaps by modulating the maturation of the bldA tRNA (175).
