  • Actinomycetes produce various physiologically active compounds, including antibiotics. Although the discovery of new active compounds has slowed recently, some novel compounds from non-soil borne actinomycetes; for example, marine actinomycetes, have been reported.1 Thus, discoveries of new taxa will expand the diversity of resources available for screening programs. Basilio et al.2 reported that actinomycetes isolated in alternative selections of pH and salinity present a significant capacity… CONTINUE READING
