General MIBiG information on this cluster

Complete gene cluster sequence?complete
Evidence for cluster-compound connection:Knock-out studies
Comments:Deletion of the complete FZB42 bacillibactin gene cluster covering genomic region 3021250-3032970 revealed that ability to produce bacillibactin has been lost completely. Construction of mutants devoid in bacillibactin production RS01 (delta bac) and RS06 (delta sfp, delta bac) has been described in PMID 19061923
