"Banking on the legacy of erythromycin, our (C2B2) labin the University of San Agustin is looking at new antibiotics from actinobacteria, dwelling in the marine sediments.
Seven genera and three bacterial phyla were identified; the phylum Proteobacteria was the most highly represented (including the genera Labrenzia, Pseudomonas, Halomonas, Shewanella and Vibrio), while representatives from Firmicutes and Actinobacteria were from only one genus (Bacillus and Micrococcus, respectively).
In the microbiota of twins diagnosed with UC, Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria have been determined to increase in the acute flare-up period, whereas there is no difference in the microbiota in the remission period compared with the healthy control groups (16).
Interestingly, the relative abundances of phyla in the gut of red deer at two sites strongly differed from those of the other sites; the feces of red deer at the winter enclosure Neuhuttenwiese had higher proportions of Actinobacteria and lower proportions of Bacteroidetes, and the feces of free-ranging red deer at Hochberg had higher proportions of Proteobacteria.
Also a repeat-winner of a Ford grant, and putting in a successful bid for the fifth time, Lebanon's Arcenciel will this year invest its $15,000 in finalising its study on 11 strains of indigenous actinobacteria. The project's main objective is to optimise the compost industry through the use of an innovative bacterial inoculum.
A number of NRCP research activities were anchored on the ground works of the science frontier, these include: in 2008, the use of crude coconut oil and water-diluted alcohol for dual fuel option for diesel engine; in 2012, the genomic survey of Dengue virus; in 2015, the bioremediation strategies for mined-out areas; in 2015, the potential use of ciliates and protozoans as indicators of pollutants in Lake Lanao along with its physical and chemical characterization; in 2017, the potential use of aquatic bacteria - Actinobacteria, as antibiotics, in the seabeds of Eastern Visayas, Luzon, Palawan, and Mindanao.
