Sponges are host organisms for various symbiotic microorganisms such as Archea, Bacteria, Cyanobacteria and Microalgae. Sponges associated microorganisms are sources of wide variety of useful natural products like cytotoxins, antifouling agents, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and antiviral compounds. Nearly 96 strains of Streptomyces were found to be associated with four species of marine sponges but only 28 stains were selected for antimicrobial activity. Among that four strains showed… CONTINUE READING
