Abstract
Our investigations into whether the biosynthesis of a linearly fused ring s ystem of an aromatic polyketide (jadomycin) could be modified to produce an angularly fused system (daunorubicin) and vice versa showed that introduct ion of the respective cyclases did not have the desired effect. Genes from the daunorubicin pathway produced a novel 21-carbon polyketide.
