Zusammenfassung: 
Streptomyces reticuli harbors an msiK gene which encodes a protein with an amino acid identity of 90% to a corresponding protein previously identified in Streptomyces lividans, Immunological studies revealed that S. lividans and S. reticuli synthesize their highest levels of MsiK during growth with cellobiose, but not with glucose, Moreover, moderate amounts of MsiK are produced by both species in the course of growth,vith maltose, melibiose, and xylose and by S. lividans in the presence of xylobiose and raffinose. In contrast, a recently identified cellobiose-binding protein and its distantly related homolog were only found if S. reticuli or S. lividans, respectively, was cultivated with cellobiose. Uptake of cellobiose and maltose was tested and ascertained for S. reticuli and S. lividans, but not for an msiK S. lividans mutant. However, transformants of this mutant carrying the S. reticuli or S. lividans msiK gene on a multicopy plasmid had regained the ability to transport both sugars, The data show that MsiK assists two ABC transport systems.
