Sowmya K L | Dr. Ramalingapp B
Abstract: Actinomycetes have provided many industrially important bioactive compounds having great economic importance. Actinomycetes are widely distributed in natural habitats, hence various methods like pre-treatments, enrichment,combinations of antibiotics, specific isolation media and some novel methods has been adapted for isolation. Actinomycetes have long been recognized as prolific producers of enzymes, antibiotics, anti-cancerous agents and play an important role in recycling of organic matter. Soil actinomycetes were isolated by various methods and found to be important source for secondary metabolites. Rare actinomycetes isolated by providing combinations of methods and with screening methods. Strategy for a range of isolation methods have been mentioned in this article for the discovery of various genera of actinomycetes.
