Actinobacteria- mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is a reliable, eco-friendly and important aspect of nanobiotechnology. In this study, aqueous silver ions, which were exposed to an actinobacterial biomass of Streptomyces naganishii (MA7), were reduced to form stable AgNPs under optimised conditions. The microbially synthesised AgNPs were(More)
Actinobacteria is a prolific producer of complex natural products; we isolated a potential marine Streptomyces sp. PM49 strain from Bay of Bengal coastal area of India. The strain PM49 exhibited highly efficient antibacterial properties on multidrug-resistant pathogens with a zone of inhibition of 14-17 mm. SSF was adopted for the production of the(More)
The transfer of drug resistance between hospital pathogens has led to alarming increase of multidrug resistant strains imposing therapeutic challenges. These resistant isolates harbor various mechanisms to counteract the drugs administered and have been reported to deliver these factors to sensitive strains in hostile environment. The present study aimed to(More)
An attempt has been made to isolate, purify and characterize antifouling compound from Streptomyces fradiae PE7 isolated from Vellar estuarine sediment, Parangipettai, South India. The microbial identification was done at species level based on its phenotypic, cell wall and molecular characteristics. Strain PE7 produced high quantity of antifouling(More)
During the course of the anti-infective drug discovery programme, actinomycete strain D25 was recovered from the Thar Desert soil, Rajasthan, India. Actinomycin type of compound isolated from the strain D25 showed promising activity against multi drug resistant and extensively drug resistant M. tuberculosis isolates. The present study reports the(More)
The present study emphasized the production of biologically active terpenoid compound from Streptomyces rochei M32, which was isolated from Western Ghats ecosystem, South India. The presence of resistant genes like mecA, vanA of Staphylococcus aureus and bla SHV, bla TEM of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was confirmed by molecular studies. The isolated compound(More)
