Key ResultStrain GMT-8 was isolated from the root tissue of Zingiber officinale Rosc. and identified as Streptomyces sp. on the basis of morphology, chemotaxonomy and 16SrDNA sequencing. It was an antagonist of Gram positive bacteria; Staphylococcus aureus ATCC25932, Bacillus cereus ATCC7064 and Bacillus subtilis ATCC6633. The inhibitory effect of the crude extract from the strain GMT-8 was examined based on the paper disc diffusion method (5 mg per paper disc) with three replications.Expand
