While the biological functions of most of the secondary metabolites made by streptomycetes are not known, it is inconceivable that they do not play an adaptive ecological role. The biosynthesis of secondary metabolites under laboratory conditions usually occurs in a growth phase or developmentally controlled manner, but is also influenced by a wide variety of environmental and physiological signals, presumably reflecting the range of conditions that trigger their production in nature.
