Copper bioaccumulation by the actinobacterium Amycolatopsis
Bacterial agents commonly associated with the occurrence of placentitis include Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa as well as Leptospira spp and Nocardioform bacteria (Crossiella equi, Amycolatopsis
spp and others).

In 1957, Piero Sensi and colleagues isolated a new bacterium, Streptomyces mediterranei (now Amycolatopsis
rifamycinica), from a soil sample from a pine forest in France.
Influence of cultivation conditions on the production of a thermostable extracellular lipase from Amycolatopsis

Vancomycin is a tricyclic glycopeptide antibiotic derived from Amycolatopsis
orientalis (formerly Nocardia orientalis) used for serious gram positive infections.
This DNA included a cluster of van-like genes for glycopeptide resistance closely related to that of Amycolatopsis
orientalis and Streptomyces toyocaensis and a 16S rDNA sequence from the avoparcin-producer Amycolatopsis
Some studies also report the isolation of actinomycetes from different mines, which are difficult to isolate from other environments such as Nocardia, Amycolatopsis
, Isoptericola, Jiangella, Pseudonocardia (Groth et al., 2007).
INTRODUCTION: Vancomycin, a tricyclic glycopeptide antibiotic (C66H75C12N9024) first isolated from a soil bacterium Actinobacteria species Amycolatopsis
orientalis, acts by inhibiting the formation of the peptidoglycan polymers of the bacterial cell wall.
