Escalation in number of resistant pathogens and diseases enhanced scientists to explore the unconventional habitats for bioactive compounds. Marine microorganisms represent a promising source for natural products due to the incredible diversity of chemical compounds that were isolated. Due to distinctive features and biodiversity of Red Sea biota, it was selected as a resource for isolation of bacteria with interesting bioactivity. Detection of bioactivity was performed using antimicrobial and…

Antimicrobial Activity of Secondary Metabolites from a Soil Bacillus Sp. 7B1 Isolated from South Al-Karak , Jordan

Micrococcus luteus was the most susceptible bacterial test strain to compound (C2) with a minimum inhibitory concentration of 25 μg/ml and was highlighted the importance of soil bacterial isolates for production of compounds with interesting bioactivities that may contribute to the drug research field.

Red Sea Microbial Diversity for Antimicrobial and Anticancer Agents

This article has reviewed the previous studies that have been conducted to explore marine-derived bioactives of Red sea, and illustrated the following aspects: Red sea microbial diversity for antibacterial and anticancer agents; the conventional and molecular approach used for screening and characterization marine microorganisms; characterization of natural products of microbial origin, and drug development from novel marine- derived metabolites and clinical trials.

The current article emphasizes the importance and need to search for new bioactive compounds to overcome infections caused by multiple drug resistant (MDR) and biofilm forming pathogens irrespective of the previously present knowledge.

Bioactive Metabolites Isolated from Microorganisms for Healthcare: Types and Delivery Routes

There are reports suggesting that microbial metabolites are more reliable in terms of efficacy and potential when compared to its chemical counterparts for curing human diseases.



Isolation of marine bacteria, antagonistic to human pathogens

Results indicated that antibacterial substances present in the antagonistic marine bacteria could be used to inhibit the growth of human pathogens.

Antibacterial Activity of Marine Culturable Bacteria Collected from a Global Sampling of Ocean Surface Waters and Surface Swabs of Marine Organisms

The purpose of the present study was to isolate marine culturable bacteria with antibacterial activity and hence a potential biotechnological use and it was not possible to relate a specific kind of eukaryotic surface or a specific geographic location to a general high occurrence of antagonistic bacteria.

Identification of the Antibacterial Compound Produced by the Marine Epiphytic Bacterium Pseudovibrio sp. D323 and Related Sponge-Associated Bacteria

It is proposed that TDA in isolate D323 and related eukaryote-associated bacteria plays a role in defending the host organism against unwanted microbial colonisation and, possibly, bacterial pathogens.

Global patterns of marine bacterioplankton diversity and characterisation of bioactive Vibrionaceae isolates

The finding of bioactive bacteria being widespread in different Arctic marine environments contributes to the knowledge of antagonistic traits in polar environments, and indicates that bioactivity may play an ecological role in these habitats.

Antimicrobial Peptides from Marine Proteobacteria

The data is reviewed and compiled on the antimicrobial peptides isolated from marine Proteobacteria, especially NRPs, which have recently generated particular interest.

Isolation of symbiotic bacteria and bioactive proteins from the marine sponge, Callyspongia diffusa

Both extracts exhibited hemolytic activity on chicken erythrocytes and on SDS-PAGE, the crude protein yielded eight bands in methanolic extract and five bands in aqueous extract, with molecular weight ranging from 14.4 to 116 kDa with three well defined bands.
