Abstract:

Actinobacteria was an important origin of novel bioactive metabolites with significant pharmaceutical applications. A total of 22 isolates were isolated from the salt pan soils and studied their cultural, physiological characteristics. Finally, they were subjected to the screening for antibiotic producing actinomycetes by agar well diffusion assay against two gram positive (Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus) and two gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae). Among the tested, two groups of gram positive bacteria were more sensitive and inhibited by 17 isolates (81.8%) and gram negative bacteria were less sensitive and inhibited by 11 isolates (50%). However, both gram+ve and gram-ve bacteria were inhibited by 6 isolates (27%).
