The rubradirin biosynthetic gene cluster encodes three putative acyladenylate-forming enzymes of aminocoumarin biosynthesis and linkage. One of these, RubC1, was shown to be a unique bifunctional enzyme, catalyzing both L-tyrosine activation and acylation of the aminocoumarin moiety. Another, Orf4, is a monofunctional aminocoumarin-acylating enzyme. The inactive RubF6 was mutated to an active acylating enzyme.
