Considering the advantages of biosurfactants produced by microorganisms, the aim of this paper was to perform the production and the characterization of a new biosurfactant produced by Streptomyces sp.
Neither bacteria identified through Gram staining and biochemical profiling, not even those identified through sequencing of 16S rRNA genes, yielded species with morphological, biochemical or genetic characteristics belonging to characteristic genera or recognized as lithoautotrophic nitrifying bacteria; instead, organisms belonging to the Streptomyces and Pseudomonas genus were isolated, both of which are known to carry out the nitrifying process heterotrophically (Bitton, 2005; Fiencke et al.
In a proof-of-concept study, a Streptomyces enzyme forms five-, six-, and even seven-membered rings at mild temperatures.
Unfortunately, the differentiation of species within this genus remains difficult, due to the fact that the Streptomyces species are still poorly defined.
Two Streptomyces species producing antibiotic, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory compounds are widespread among intertidal macroalgae and deep-sea coral reef invertebrates from the central Cantabrian Sea.
Floss, Studies on the Biosynthesis of the Antibiotic Reductiomycin in Streptomyces Xanthochromogenus, J.
For example, while the Streptomyces species is responsible for more than half of all known antibiotics, scientists know it has the capacity to make many more than it produces in the lab.
The genetic characterization by 16S rRNA gene sequencing exhibited maximum genetic similarity with different species of the well-known genus of actinomycetes named as Streptomyces.
The Nubians brewed beer in vats, a prime stomping ground for the soil-based bacteria named Streptomyces, which is responsible for making tetracycline.
In a Nature Communications paper published this past February, Magarvey and others demonstrated how this computational resource can reveal previously unknown molecular scaffolds that are encoded in the streptomyces genome but not always expressed.
Covering in turn virulence mechanisms and important bacterial diseases in agriculture, they discuss such aspects as fimbrial and afimbrial adhesins involved in bacterial attachment to surfaces, high-throughput DNA sequencing technology as a tool in understanding plant-pathogen bacteria, Candidatus liberibacter species and related diseases, virulence mechanisms of plant-pathogen Ralstonia species, and mechanisms of pathogenicity and the emergence of new plant-pathogen species in the genus Streptomyces.
