Screening of Marine Actinobacteria for Antimicrobial Compounds

K. Siva Kumar, R. Haritha, Y.S.Y.V. Jagan Mohan and T. Ramana

Actinobacteria producing bioactive compounds were isolated by serial dilution method from marine sediments collected from Bay of Bengal at a depth of 10-40 m near pudimadaka coast of Andhra Pradesh. A total of 78 isolates were obtained and Streptomyces is predominant among all the isolates. Out of 78 isolates, 22 isolates exhibited antibacterial activity alone and 12 isolates exhibited both antibacterial and antifungal activity, respectively. Among the active isolates BTS-112, BTS-314 and BTS-401 isolates showed promising activities. The isolates were further characterized and identified to be belonging to the genus Rhodococcus and Streptomyces.
