Resumo

Nonribosomal peptides have an important pharmacological role due to their extensive biological properties. The singularities in the biosynthesis of these natural products allowed the development of genome-mining strategies which associate them to their original biosynthetic gene clusters. Generally, these compounds present complex architectures that make their identification difficult. Based on these evidences, genomes from species of the class Betaproteobacteria were studied with the purpose of finding biosynthetic similarities among them. These organisms were applied as templates due to their large number of biosynthetic gene clusters and the natural products isolated from them. The strategy for Rapid Identification of Nonribosomal Peptides Portions (RINPEP) proposed in this work was built by reorganizing the data obtained from antiSMASH and NCBI with a product-centered way. The verification steps of RINPEP comprehended the fragments of existent compounds and predictions obtained in silico with the purpose of finding common subunits expressed by different genomic sequences. The results of this strategy revealed patterns in a global overview of the biosynthesis of nonribosomal peptides by Betaproteobacteria. (AU)
