The plates were incubated at 30[degrees]C for 5 days for Actinomycetes
, at 37[degrees]C for 24 hours for Eubacteria, and then plates were flooded with 1% Lugol's iodine reagent for 20 minutes and washed with water to remove the excess color.
Among numerous classes of microorganisms, Actinomycetes
are the bacteria which showed chemical and morphological diversity.
isolates improved both the number of stems and seeds.
The microbial community composition of this bio-organic fertilizer was 4.36 x 108 CFU/g of bacteria, 3.28 x 106 CFU/g of fungi, and 1.58 x 106 CFU/g of actinomycetes
The result of antagonistic interactions between the actinomycete
strains, taken in pairs, allowed the detection of 18 active strains named STS3, STB1, STG6, STG1, STC3, STS2, STC4, STG4, STB7, SMC3, SMBg3, STG8, STC5, STG2, STB6, STB8, STB2, and STG5 producing antimicrobial compounds against one or more targetactinomycete strains (Table 2).
Species-specific secondary metabolite production in marine actinomycetes
of the genus Salinispora.
In greenhouse experimentation, the application of two endophytic actinomycete
strains and one telluric actinomycete
on potato plants induced good reduction of disease severity of potato bacterial wilt.
(2009) found some actinomycete
isolates producing strong larvicidal activity against Anopheles mosquito larvae.
Antitubercular activity of actinomycete
extracts was studied against standard laboratory strain Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv, SHRE (streptomycin, isoniazid, rifampicin, and ethambutol) sensitive, and SHRE resistant clinical isolates of M.
Aerobic, nonmotile, Gram-positive actinomycete
forms extensively branched substrate and aerial mycelia.
