BHATTACHARYYA, Barun K.; PAL, Sushil C. and SEN, Sukanta K.. ANTIBIOTIC PRODUCTION BY STREPTOMYCES HYGROSCOPICUS D1.5: CULTURAL EFFECT. Rev. Microbiol. [online]. 1998, vol.29, n.3 ISSN 0001-3714. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0001-37141998000300003.
In an attempt to screen out new potent antibiotic producers from soil, Streptomyces hygroscopicus D1.5 was isolated and was found antagonistic to both bacteria and fungi. It could utilise arginine as nitrogen source and glycerol as carbon source at 0.75 g/l and 11.5 g/l level, respectively for maximum antibiotic yield.
