Abstract The polyketide gene cluster aur1 is responsible for the production of the antibiotic auricin in Streptomyces aureofaciens CCM 3239. Auricin production is low and strictly regulated by two regulators, Aur1P and Aur1R. To improve auricin yield, we genetically manipulated S. aureofaciens CCM 3239 strain to overcome this strict regulation. A regulatory region including aur1R, aur1P, aur1O and the target biosynthetic aur1Ap promoter were replaced by the strong constitutive ermEp* promoter. However, auricin production was decreased in such a genetically manipulated strain. In the second strategy we placed the aur1P gene for auricin pathway-specific activator under the control of the ermEp* promoter. The resulting strain has been shown to produce 2.8-fold higher amount of auricin compared with the WT strain.
