The Order Cytophagales
The Cytophagales appear to be distantly related to the Bacteroides group, and these two together comprise one of the main branches, perhaps a phylum, in the bacterial phylogenetic system.

Epothilons A and B: antifungal and cytotoxic compounds from Sorangium cellulosum (Myxobacteria). Production, physico-chemical and biological properties.
An antifungal activity against Mucor hiemalis was detected in the culture broth of Sorangium cellulosum strain So ce90 and the epothilons showed a high cytotoxicity for animal cells and mimic the biological effects of taxol.
Characterisation, genome size and genetic manipulation of the myxobacterium Sorangium cellulosum So ce56
S. cellulosum So ce56 was phenotypically and genotypically analysed in order to evaluate whether this strain can be used in a comprehensive genome project as a representative of the secondary metabolite-producing myxobacteria, and was found to have various advantageous features.
The Genus Lysobacter
The Lysobacter species live in soil, decaying organic matter, and fresh water, sometimes in large populations, and many strains are of considerable ecological and biotechnological interest as producers of exoenzymes and of antibiotics.
Introduction to the Gliding Bacteria
The gliding bacteria are, in all likelihood, a phylogenetically heterogeneous group. The uniting character, gliding motility, may have the same taxonomic importance and reliability as flagellation.
Apicularens A and B, new cytostatic macrolides from Chondromyces species (myxobacteria): production, physico-chemical and biological properties.
A novel macrolide, apicularen A, was produced by several species of the genus Chondromyces, and is chemically closely related to the salicylihalamides A and B from the marine sponge Haliclona sp.

Twenty new electron transport inhibitors, 10 substances that act on the cytoskeleton, four inhibitors of nucleic acid polymerases, and one inhibitor of fungal acetyl-CoA carboxylase, a novel mechanism of action have been found.
