A Streptomyces strain MS-6-6 with promising anti-tuberculous activity was isolated from soil samples in Saudi Arabia. The nucleotide sequence of its 16S rRNA gene (1426 bp) evidenced a 100% similarity to Streptomyces mutabilis. Through an anti-tuberculous activity-guided approach, a polyketide macrolide was isolated and identified as treponemycin (TP). The structure of the isolated compound was determined by comprehensive analyses of its 1D and 2D NMR as well as HRESI-MS. In addition to the…

Novel Bioactive Molecules from Marine Actinomycetes
The ecological role of actinomycetes in the marine ecosystem is largely neglected and various assumptions meant there was little incentive to isolate marine strains for search and discovery of new drugs, but continued development of improved cultivation methods and molecular technologies for accessing the marine environment promises to provide access to this significant new source of chemical diversity.
