DIVERSITY AND ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF ACTINOMYCETES FROM RHIZOSPHERE OF HIBISCUS ROSASINENSISS. KARTHICK RAJA. NAMASIVAYAM AND T.V. SWATHI
Five actinomycetes belonging to Micromono5pora, Streptomyces, Arthrobactor, Actinomyces and Nocardia wrre isolated from rhizosphere of I libiscus rosasinensis and their inhibitory activity against human pathogenic bacteria such as E. coh, Pseudomona:; aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Sermtia marcesens yeast viz Candida alhicans was studied in the present study. Among the five genera, Micromonospora sp was found to be dominant followed by Streptomvces sp. The antimicrobial activity was recorded in all the genera except Nocardia and Arthrobactor. Maximum antibacterial and antifungal activity was observed in Streptomyces and Micromonospora.
