ME3 and Micromonospora MM18 produced and released IAA, GA3, and zeatine in a defined media.
It is a glycopeptide antibiotic extracted from Actinoplanes
teichomyceticus with a similar spectrum of activity to vancomycin.

The alpha glucosidase inhibitors (AGIs) were initially isolated from bacterial cultures or their derivatives: acarbose from Actinoplanes
, miglitol, a semisynthetic derivative of 1-deoxynojirimycin, from Bacillus and Streptomyces sp.
Initially patented in 1995 as Actinoplanes
