The physiology and regulatory processes of differentiation in Streptomycetes are still obsurce in many respects. Since the problem is very complex it can be approached from different sides. One of these is the investigation of the physiologicl role of post-translational regulation by ADP-ribosylation in Streptomyces griseus.
