Urmia Hypersaline Lake: A Potential Source of Actinomycetes Possessing

Article excerpt

Background: The aim of this study was to discover new natural products from novel actinomycetes isolated from unexplored Urmia Hypersaline Lake.

Methods: Marine samples were collected from different points in the coastal of Urmia lake and totally 20 actinomy- cetes were isolated using different isolation media. All the isolates were characterized and identified by microscopical and macroscopical observations. Sequencing and analysis of 16S rDNA from chosen isolates was performed.

Results: Identification of the isolates revealed that all isolates belong to the genus Streptomyces sp. The isolated marine acti- nomycetes were screened for their antimicrobial activity against the human bacterial pathogens Salmonella typhi, Esche- richia coli, Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneu- monia. …
