Antibiotic Production in the Dacrymycetaceae

  title={Antibiotic Production in the Dacrymycetaceae},
  author={Marvin N. Schwalb},
UP to the present time only four species of Dacrymycetaceae have been tested for antibiotic activity against bacteria1–2. Using sporophore extracts, Wilkens and Harris found no activity against Bacterium (Escherichia) coli or Staphylococcus aureus by Femsjonia luteoalba Fr., Calocera cornea (Batch.) Fr., Calocera viscosa (Pers.) Fr. or Dacrymyces deliquescens (Bull.) Duby. The present investigation was undertaken after a zone of inhibition produced by a culture of Dacrymyces palmatus (Schw…

Investigation into the production of Bacteriostatic Substances by Fungi. VI. Examination of the Larger Basidiomycetes.

The results indicate that the larger Basidiomycetes are among the more promising fungus groups which produce antibiotics and that they compare favourably in this respect with the Aspergilli and the Penicillia.

This paper may be regarded as an addendum to previous work, more particularly the work which dealt with some 700 of the larger Basidiomycetes, which tested for their antibiotic properties by means of sporophore extract.
