The ability to produce several antibacterial agents greatly increases the chance of producer’s survival. In this study, red-pigmented Vibrio sp. DSM 14379 and Bacillus sp., both isolated from the same sampling volume from estuarine waters of the Northern Adriatic Sea, were grown in a co-culture. The antibacterial activity of the red pigment extract was tested on Bacillus sp. in microtiter plates. The MIC50 for Bacillus sp. was estimated to be around 10−5 mg/L. The extract prepared form the… CONTINUE READING
