A sco3956-deletion mutant (ΔSCO3956) of Streptomyces coelicolor was generated to characterize the S-adenosylmethionine (SAM)-induced, ATP-binding cassette transporter (ABC transporter) ATP-binding protein, SCO3956. It produced actinorhodin (ACT) and undecylprodigiosin (RED) decreased by approx. 82 and 64 %, respectively. In addition, the effect of exogenous SAM was lost in the ΔSCO3956. Plasmid-based complementation of sco3956 in ΔSCO3956 restored ACT and RED levels of ΔSCO3956 to wild-type levels (ACT: 20 ± 1.4 mg g(-1) DCW and RED: 5.3 ± 0.6 mg g(-1) DCW) and the exogenous effect significantly increased ACT and RED by approx. 129 and 135 %, respectively, when compared to the exogenous SAM non-treated sco3956 complementation strain. Thus, the ABC transporter ATP-binding protein, SCO3956, plays a critical role in ACT and RED production serving as a transducer of SAM signaling.
