Highlights of hygrocins: The biosynthesis of hygrocins from Streptomyces sp. LZ35 was elucidated. The luciferase-like monooxygenase (LLM) homologue Hgc3 was identified as a novel Baeyer–Villiger monooxygenase, and P450 monooxygenase Hgc4 was shown to be involved in the 7-hydroxylation step of hygrocins. Additionally, two new intermediates were identified in selected gene disruption mutants.
