Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Streptomyces hygroscopicus subsp. jinggangensis (strain 5008) pan proteome (fasta)

The genus Streptomyces consists of soil and water Gram positive filamentous bacteria well known for their ability to produce complex secondary metabolites including many antibiotics. Additionally they undergo complex multicellular development, with spores germinating to form a branched, multinucleoid substrate mycelium, which then produces an aerial mycelium which septates into uninucleoid spores. Streptomyces is also unusual in having linear chromosomes with terminal inverted repeats with terminal proteins covalently bound to their 5' ends.

Streptomyces hygroscopicus subsp. jinggangensis 5008 isolated from the Jinggang Mountain area of China in 1974 produces at least two antibiotics of agricultural importance. Jingangmycin, a weakly basic water-soluble aminocyclitol antibiotic, was later proven to be identical to validamycin A. It is used as a prime control reagent against fungi causing sheath blight disease of rice plants and dumping-off of cucumber seedlings. The other antibiotic, jingsimycin, is an acidic polypeptide similar to saramycetin and has activity against various fungi (adapted from PMID 16151088).
