Using polymerase chain reaction the 2,4 kb fragment, containing snorA gene was cloned. The snorA gene was subcloned into pKC1218E vector. Obtained construction was transferred into Streptomyces nogalater IMET43360 cells using bacterial conjugation. It was found that expression of snorA gene in pKC1218E vector in S. nogalater caused increaså in nogalamycin production.
