Purification of antibacterial compounds from Streptomyces collected from soil sample

Some preliminary results from a collaboration project with NguyenTatThanh University. Dinh Thi Lan Linh, Nguyen Thi Ngoc Yen, Nguyen Huynh Kim and Phan Canh Trinh IntroductionThe Actinobacteria group has well-known for the ability to produce novel antibiotics. Source from agriculture has been studied for many decades, leading to limit the discovery of new species, as … Continue reading Purification of antibacterial compounds from Streptomyces collected from soil sample

Enhancing production of antibiotic by Streptomyces in biofilm culture

Streptomyces spp. can produce the variety of secondary compounds including antibiotic, anti-cancer. At the Mycology Lab, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Medicine and Pharmacy, we are looking for new antibiotics from lichen-associated Actinobacteria which is a new source in antibiotic discovery. In 2019, we found that ethyl-acetate extract of Streptomyces sp. 4VH3 isolated from Dirinaria … Continue reading Enhancing production of antibiotic by Streptomyces in biofilm culture

Associated Actinobacteria from Vietnamese Lichen

Lichen is a complex model of symbiosis including not only fungi and algae but other bacteria such as Actinobacteria. Of note, Actinobacteria are renowned for capacity to produce various antibiotics. Recently, with discovery of some new secondary metabolites from lichen, lichen-associated actinomycetes have attracted extensive attention. In Vietnam, as of this time, no research has … Continue reading Associated Actinobacteria from Vietnamese Lichen
