Actinomycetes are prokaryotic organisms that are classified as bacteria, but are unique enough to be discussed as an individual group. Actinomycete numbers are generally one to two orders of magnitude smaller than the total bacterial population (Table ).They are an important component of the bacterial community, especially under conditions of high pH, high temperature or water stress. This book titled “A Closer Look at Actinomycetes” is a compilation of articles which deals with interesting topics such as “actinomycetes as microbial drug factories”, endophytic fungi from special habitats of Pakistan as well as strategies for exploration of actinomycetes diversity and the taxonomy of actinomycetes should be of great. Actinobacteria is a phylum of gram-positive bacteria with high G+C content. Among gram-positive bacteria, actinobacteria exhibit the richest morphological differentiation, which is based on a filamentous degree of organization like filamentous fungi. The actinobacteria morphological characteristics are basic foundation and information of phylogenetic by: This research book presents a broad view of the current interest in actinomycetes, ranging from isolation/screening of actinomycetes, discovery of new antibiotics, a substantial contribution on genetic manipulation to actinomycetes in agriculture, forestry, and the Author: Author Unknown.

This research book presents a broad view of the current interest in actinomycetes, ranging from isolation/screening of actinomycetes, discovery of new antibiotics, a substantial contribution on genetic manipulation to actinomycetes in agriculture, forestry, and the Reviews: 1. Actinobacteria (actinomycetes) have been received much attention, as these bacteria produce a variety of natural drugs and other bioactive metabolites. The distribution of actinomycetes in various natural habitats, including soil, ocean, extreme environments, plant, lichens and animals, is described. The collection and pretreatment of test samples from different sources, design principle of Cited by: 8. dominant followed by the other organisms, such as Nocardia, Nocardiopsis, and Actinomycetes [4]. In the study of Nithya et al [5], morphologically distinguished culturable Actinobac‐. The Actinobacteria are a phylum of Gram-positive can be terrestrial or aquatic. They are of great economic importance to humans because agriculture and forests depend on their contributions to soil systems. In soil, they behave much like fungi, helping to decompose the organic matter of dead organisms so the molecules can be taken up anew by plants.(unranked): Terrabacteria.

actinomycetes play a significant role in the production of various antimicrobial of actinomycetes in the discovery of novel compounds with activity against microorganisms has been realized, and hence opens exciting avenues in the field of biotechnology and biomedical research. A total of 83 actinomycetes were isolated and assigned to eight genera (Streptomyces, Micromonospora, Nocardia, Nocardiopsis, Nonomuraea, Saccharopolyspora, Pseudonocardia and Actinoalloteichus) on the basis of their 16S rDNA sequences and it was the first step toward better understanding of actinomycete community from solar saltern ponds in by: Actinomycete, (order Actinomycetales), any member of a heterogeneous group of gram-positive, generally anaerobic bacteria noted for a filamentous and branching growth pattern that results, in most forms, in an extensive colony, or mycelium in some species may break apart to form rod- or coccoid-shaped forms. Many genera also form spores; the sporangia, or spore cases, may be found. WAKSMAN SA. Species concept among the actinomycetes with special reference to the genus Streptomyces. Bacteriol Rev.
