A new antifungal antibiotic named histidinomycin was isolated from the broth filtrate of a streptomycete, tentatively designated as isolate H 878-MY 1. Histidinomycin was purified as the monohydrochloride and the molecular formula was proposed to be C22H30N8O11.HCl. The antibiotic gave histidine by acid hydrolysis. Histidinomycin showed rather narrow antimicrobial spectrum for only few genera of phytophathogenic fungi. 
Hudson River sediments as a source of actinomycetes exhibiting antifungal activity
Pretreatments utilized to improve the recovery of these microorganisms included heat and exposure to phenol or benzalkonium chloride and plating of sediment samples on selective agar substrates eliminated or severely limited the growth of contaminating microorganisms thereby facilitating the isolation of actinomycetes.

Comprehensive Investigation of Marine Actinobacteria Associated with the Sponge Halichondria panicea
It was shown that strains in which either PKS or NRPS genes were identified produced a significantly higher number of metabolites and exhibited a larger number of unidentified, possibly new metabolites than other strains, which is a good indicator for the selection of strains to isolate new natural products.

Chapter 15. Developments In Microbial Products Screening
The recent advances in screening technologies have demonstrated that the development of novel specific and sensitive screens is the key limitation to the exploitation of microbial products as further sources of pharmaceutics rather than the chemical variety and range of biological activities.
