Actinorhodin is a benzoisochromanequinone polyketide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces coelicolor.[2][3] The gene cluster responsible for actinorhodin production contains the biosynthetic enzymes and genes responsible for export of the antibiotic.[4] The antibiotic also has the effect of being a pH indicator due to its pH-dependent color change.[5]
