Antibiotic production of hyphal fractions of Streptomyces griseus. II. Streptomycin production of different fractions obtained by density gradient centrifugation

Applied Microbiology
F Szeszák, G Szabó


The streptomycin-producing activity (SPA) of hyphal fractions from washed mycelium of submerged cultures of Streptomyces griseus strain 52-1, as obtained by density gradient centrifugation, was investigated. Activity of the various fractions differed strongly in intensity. The highest SPA was evident in the unfractionated mycelium. A synergistic effect upon SPA was found in the interaction of cultures of different ages, and a 55% increase in yield was obtained by mixing the 48- and 72-hr cultures. A synergistic effect occurred in all combinations studied. By use of fractions obtained from 72-hr mycelium for inoculation, differences in streptomycin production were noted. Some inoculum fractions yielded a greater amount of streptomycin (36%) than the unfractionated mycelial inoculum.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
