Abstract

Objective: Isolation and characterization study of actinomycetes from soil near medicinal plants in saurashtra region of Gujarat which can produce antimicrobial compounds.

Methods: Present study 11 different medicinal plants 3 regions of saurashtra selected. Microflora part of soil was used. Different media used for isolation. Microscopic methods used for Study of colony characteristics, arial and vegetative mycelium color and morphological examination of isolates. Primary screening was done by using cross streak method while for secondary screening well diffusion techniques with thin layer chromatography and bioautography. Antimicrobial activity of most potent isolates check against test organisms. Different biochemical methods used for characterization of the most active isolate.

Results: It was found that out of 66 actinomycetes isolates 45 (68.2 %) actinomycetes isolates were showing activity against test microbes. In the primary screening, 15 actinomycets isolates showed good antimicrobial activity. Out of these 15 actinomycetes isolates 5 isolates GOS1, JOS1, GOS3, GTF1 and JTF1 showing a broad spectrum of activity against microorganisms. It was found that out of this 5 isolates GOS1 was most potent antagonistic actinomycetes. Characterizations, as well as optimization studies of actinomycetes, isolates GOS1 which may use to produce new and useful antimicrobial compounds and other metabolites.

Conclusion: It was concluded that actinomycetes isolates from different soil samples nearby medicinal plant area of saurashtra region are a good source to produce many useful antimicrobial compounds and other metabolites.
