Biochemical genetics of Cephalosporin C production
Norman, Elizabeth (1988) Biochemical genetics of Cephalosporin C production. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The biosynthetic pathway which leads, in Cephalosporium acremonium, to the production of the commercially important β-lactam antibiotic Cephalosporin C (CPC) has been the subject of extensive biochemical studies and is now well characterized. In contrast, genetic analysis in this organism was limited until the application of protoplast fusion techniques facilitated parasexual analysis and allowed a genetic map to be established. (Hamlyn 1982; Hamlyn et al 1985). Subsequently, work leading to our understanding of the genetic basis of the CPC biosynthetic pathway in C. acremonium began.
