Apramycin was utilised as a selection agent at one hundred ug/ml for E. coli and at 50 ug/ml for S. spinosa. S. spinosa have been cultured as described [8]. Initial, S. spinosa was cultured for three days in seed medium (g/L) which was composed by Trypticase soy broth, 30; yeast extract, three; MgSO 4 ?7H2O, 2; glucose, ten; and maltose, 4, pH 7.two. Then three mL of seed medium were injected into 30 mL fermentation medium (g/L) which was composed by glucose, 68; cottonseed flour, 22; peptone C, 25; corn seed liquor, 14.5; methyl oleate, 40; and CaCO3, five, pH 7.2. The fermentation medium was optimized by response surface strategies [10].Determination of spinosad and S. spinosa growthwas used because the door strain in biparental intergeneric conjugations. Saccharopolyspora spinosa ATCC 49460 was made use of as the parent strain. Oligonucleotide primers made use of in this study are listed in Table three. To construct rex mutant S. spinosa, initial, part of rex (604 bp) fragment was amplified from genomic DNA of S. spinosa making use of primer pairs of rex-F-HindIII, rex-RXbaI. Then the 604 bp fragment was digested by HindIII (Fermentas) and XbaI (Fermentas) and ligated to pOJ260 obtaining pLu106. pLu106 was introduced into S. spinosa ATCC 49460 by conjugation from E. coli S17-1 and homologous recombination into the chromosome as described previously [28]. The plasmid was inserted into the middle rex of S. spinosa ATCC 49460 to create S. spinosa rex (Lu106). S. spinosa rex was confirmed by PCR amplification with primers Con-F and Con-R.Table three Sequences of oligonucleotide primers made use of in this studyPrimers rex-F-HindIII rex-R-Xbal cydA-F cydA-RcydB-F cydB-RCon-F Con-R 16S rRNA-F 16S rRNA-R rbL13-F rbL13-R Sequence 5′ 3′ CTAAGCTTTGTCCGCACTCGCCGAC CTTCTAGAATCCACATCGGATCGATCGG TATCGCACCGGCAAGCAG GAACTCCTGCACGATGCC GATCTGCCCACCTTCTGG CATGCCGACGCCGAAGTC CCGTGATTTTGTAGCCCTGG GGCCTACTTCACCTATCCTGC CCTACGAGCTCTTTACGCCC AGAAGCACCGGCTAACTACG GGCGTAGACCTTGAGCTTC GCTCGAAAAGGCGATCAAGSpinosad in fermentation broth was extracted and determined by HPLC as described [10]. Dry cell weight (DCW) was determined as described [29]. Glucose was measured by using the dinitrosalicylic acid (DNS) approach [30]. The experiments had been repeated three instances.NADH and NAD+ extraction and determinationNADH and NAD+ had been extracted in accordance with a previous described technique with some modifications [31]. five mL cell cultures have been collected, chilled on ice quickly, and centrifuged at 12000 g, 4 for 10 min. Then cell pellets were immediately ground to powder in a porcelain mortar, which was pre-cooled to -80 , beneath liquid nitrogen for 5 min. After that, NADH was extracted by the addition of 300 uL 0.2 mol/L NaOH.
