Biotechnology needs to explore the capacity of different organisms to overproduce proteins of interest at low cost. In this paper, we show that Streptomyces lividans is a suitable host for the expression of Thermus thermophilus genes and report the overproduction of the corresponding proteins. This capacity was corroborated after cloning the genes corresponding to an alkaline phosphatase (a periplasmic enzyme in T. thermophilus) and that corresponding to a beta-glycosidase (an intracellular enzyme) in Escherichia coli and in S. lividans. Comparison of the production in both hosts revealed that the expression of active protein achieved in S. lividans was much higher than in E. coli, especially in the case of the periplasmic enzyme. In fact, the native signal peptide of the T. thermophilus phosphatase was functional in S. lividans, being processed at the same peptide bond in both organisms, allowing the overproduction and secretion of this protein to the S. lividans culture supernatant. As in E. coli, the thermostability of the expressed proteins allowed a huge purification factor upon thermal denaturation and precipitation of the host proteins. We conclude that S. lividans is a very efficient and industry-friendly host for the expression of thermophilic proteins from Thermus spp.
Expression of the PstS Gene of Streptomyces Lividans is Regulated by the Carbon Source and is Partially Independent of the PhoP Regulator
BMC Microbiology. 2008 | Pubmed ID: 19019225
PstS is a phosphate-binding lipoprotein that is part of the high-affinity phosphate transport system. Streptomyces lividans accumulates high amounts of the PstS protein in the supernatant of liquid cultures grown in the presence of different carbon sources, such as fructose or mannose, but not in the presence of glucose or in basal complex medium.

The abundance of two-component systems (TCSs) in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) genome indicates their importance in the physiology of this soil bacteria. Currently, several TCSs have been related to antibiotic regulation, and the purpose in this study was the characterization of five TCSs, selected by sequence homology with the well-known absA1A2 system, that could also be associated with this important process. Null mutants of the five TCSs were obtained and two mutants (ΔSCO1744/1745 and ΔSCO4596/4597/4598) showed significant differences in both antibiotic production and morphological differentiation, and have been renamed as abr (antibiotic regulator). No detectable changes in antibiotic production were found in the mutants in the systems that include the ORFs SCO3638/3639, SCO3640/3641 and SCO2165/2166 in any of the culture conditions assayed. The system SCO1744/1745 (AbrA1/A2) was involved in negative regulation of antibiotic production, and acted also as a negative regulator of the morphological differentiation. By contrast, the system SCO4596/4597/4598 (AbrC1/C2/C3), composed of two histidine kinases and one response regulator, had positive effects on both morphological development and antibiotic production. Microarray analyses of the ΔabrC1/C2/C3 and wild-type transcriptomes revealed downregulation of actII-ORF4 and cdaR genes, the actinorhodin and calcium-dependent antibiotic pathway-specific regulators respectively. These results demonstrated the involvement of these new two-component systems in antibiotic production and morphological differentiation by different approaches. One is a pleiotropic negative regulator: abrA1/A2. The other one is a positive regulator composed of three elements, two histidine kinases and one response regulator: abrC1/C2/C3.
Streptomycin-induced Expression in Bacillus Subtilis of YtnP, a Lactonase-homologous Protein That Inhibits Development and Streptomycin Production in Streptomyces Griseus
Applied and Environmental Microbiology. Jan, 2012 | Pubmed ID: 22101040
Bacillus subtilis induces expression of the gene ytnP in the presence of the antimicrobial streptomycin, produced by the Gram-positive bacterium Streptomyces griseus. ytnP encodes a lactonase-homologous protein that is able to inhibit the signaling pathway required for the streptomycin production and development of aerial mycelium in S. griseus.
