Abstract

Allosamidin is a strong inhibitor of family 18 chitinases. We previously reported the presence of allosamidin-sensitive and -insensitive chitinases (chitinase S and IS) in the culture filtrate of the allosamidin-producing strain, Streptomyces sp. AJ9463. In this study, we cloned and sequenced the genes encoding the two chitinases, which clarified that chitinase S and IS belong to the family 18 and 19 chitinase, respectively.
