Genomics has revealed that even well-studied bacteria maintain many more biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) predicted to encode specialized metabolites than expected based on product discovery. These orphan BGCs are often assumed to be transcriptionally silent. Here, we show that a majority of the 46 BGCs observed in four strains of the marine actinomycete Salinispora are transcribed at levels that should facilitate product detection. In five cases, similar BGCs were differentially expressed among strains, suggesting that simple presence or absence analyses are not good predictors of metabolic output. Highly expressed BGCs were bioinformatically linked to their products, including a series of salinipostins not previously reported from Salinispora pacifica. Subsequent genetic experiments established a formal link between salinipostins and their cognate BGC.

Genome sequencing and the application of omic techniques are driving many important advances in the field of microbial natural products research. Despite these gains, there remain aspects of the natural product discovery pipeline where our knowledge remains poor. These include the extent to which biosynthetic gene clusters are transcriptionally active in native microbes, the temporal dynamics of transcription, translation, and natural product assembly, as well as the relationships between small molecule production and detection. Here we touch on a number of these concepts in the context of continuing efforts to unlock the natural product potential revealed in genome sequence data and discuss nomenclatural issues that warrant consideration as the field moves forward.
