Summary An enzyme that catalyzes 2′-O-phosphorylation of oleandomycin and several other macrolide antibiotics has been purified approximately 47-fold from cell-free extracts ofStreptomyces coelicolor Müller, NRRL 3532 (UC™ 5240). The reaction product was verified as being oleandomycin-2′-O-phosphate by mass spectrometry. As a result of purification, the enzyme was separated from two lincosaminide inactivating enzyme activities also present in the cell-free extract.
