Özet

Fourteen Streptomyces strains were isolated from soil samples of five different areas of Cukurova University. Four strains (S35, S47, S48, S50) had antibacterial activity against test organisms which were Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and this antibacterial activity was evaluated by three different media. The strains S47 and S48 showed the biggest zone diameter against test organisms at glycerol-yeast agar medium, on the other hand, the strains S35 and S50 indicated the biggest zone diameter at glucose-asparagine agar medium. As a result, the group and activity of bioactive compounds produced by Streptomyces can be influenced by their nutritional conditions and environmental factors.
