Spirillospora strain 719 produces several antibiotics. On solid and liquid media, a deep red pigments is formed and diffuses throughout the culture. It was extracted with methanol from the mycelium cake and from the fermentation broth after precipitation at pH 2 and purified using TLC and HPLC. Its u.v. absorption spectrum and its physicochemical characteristics place this antibiotic in the of the Berdy et al. classification. In most respects, it resembles proteinaceous pigment from… 
Water-Soluble Red Pigment Production by Paecilomyces sinclairii and Biological Characterization
The production of red pigment produced by Paecilomyces sinclairii in microbial fermentation was demonstrated and the pigment was purified and characterized and exhibited broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity in both bacteria.
First Record of the Isolation, Identification and Biological Activity of a New Strain of Spirillospora albida from Thai Cave Soil
An actinomycete, designated as CMU-PNK470, was isolated from the soil in Phanangkoi cave in northern Thailand and subjected to phenotypic and genotypic characterization, which indicated that this isolate belonged to the genus Spirillospora.
Actinobacteria Derived from Algerian Ecosystems as a Prominent Source of Antimicrobial Molecules
Focusing on the Algerian natural sources of antimicrobial metabolites, this work is a representative example of the potential of a closely combined study on biology and chemistry of natural products.


AH17, a new non-polyenic antifungal antibiotic produced by a strain of Spirillospora.
An antibiotic (AH17) was produced by Spirillospora strain 719 and showed activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and fungi and indicated that AH17 was a quinone.
Arizonins, a new complex of antibiotics related to kalafungin. II. Isolation and characterization.
A new complex of anti-Gram-positive antibiotics was produced by the fermentation of Actinoplanes arizonaensis sp. nov. The antibiotics were recovered from the fermentation broth with Amberlite XAD-7
Screening for non-polyenic antifungal antibiotics produced by rare Actinomycetales.
Strains of Actinomycetales belonging to thirteen genera other than Streptomyces were isolated from different ecosystems in the Algerian Sahara and revealed that six strains produced non-polyenic antifungal substances and four synthetized polyenic substances.
Novel bioactive compounds from actinomycetes.
HM17, a new polyene antifungal antibiotic produced by a new strain of Spirillospora.
An antifungal antibiotic (HM17) was obtained from a new isolate classified to the genus Spirillospora on the basis of its chemical and morphological properties and this is the first report of polyene production by a Spirillspora.
