Effects of salinity on antibiotic production in sponge-derived Salinispora actinobacteria.

AIMS To investigate the effects of growth conditions related to marine habitat on antibiotic production in sponge-derived Salinispora actinobacteria. METHODS AND RESULTS Media with varying salt concentration were used to investigate the effects of salinity in relation to Salinispora growth and rifamycin production. The chemotypic profiles of the model… CONTINUE READING
