Abstract:
A total of 51 Actinomycetes were isolatedfrom different soil samples of Palestine.Preliminary screening by cross-streak methodwas carried out for all the 51 isolates. Afterpreliminary screening, 17 isolates which showedantimicrobial (antibacterial, antifungal) activitywere selected for further study. Among these 17isolates tested, 5 isolates which were found to bepromising were subjected to detailed taxonomicstudies. A novel strain of S. albovinaceus (isolate10/2) which was found to be maximum antibioticproducer and which has shown both broadspectrum antibacterial and antifungal activitieswas isolated and is been selected for furtherdetailed optimization studies.
