Our article on new antibiotic Cacaoidin heterologous expression promoted to the Editor’s Choice Articles Section of the journal Antibiotics

Our recent article entitled “Biosynthesis and heterologous expression of cacaoidin, the first member of the lanthidin family of RiPPs”, recently published in Antibiotics, has been selected as an outstanding paper by the Editor-in-Chief and included in the Editor's Choice Articles Section. Cacaoidin represents the first member of the new lanthidin (class V lanthipeptides) RiPP family. In this work, we describe the identification, cloning and heterologous expression of the cacaoidin biosynthetic gene cluster, and as first report on the heterologous production of a class V lanthipeptide.
