Streptomyces

(strĕp'təmī`sēz), bacterial genus of the order Actinomycetales, members of which resemble fungi in their branching filamentous structure. Various species produce such antibiotics as streptomycinstreptomycin
, antibiotic produced by soil bacteria of the genus Streptomyces and active against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (see Gram's stain), including species resistant to other antibiotics, e.g.

 and various tetracyclinestetracycline
, any of a group of antibiotics produced by bacteria of the genus Streptomyces. Effective against a wide range of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria, tetracycline interferes with protein synthesis in these microorganisms (see Gram's stain).

Esto podria deberse a la capacidad de esporular del genero Streptomyces en el caso de las semillas sin peletizar y su habilidad de consumir nutrientes en el caso de las semillas peletizadas (McCormick & Flardh, 2012).
Conversely, in the agricultural soil, most of the PGPR belonged to the Phylum Firmicutes (50%; n = 22), and Bacillus was the largest genus isolated, followed by Streptomyces. Regarding the origin of the isolates, the three PF samples contributed similarly to the isolation; however, in the AG samples, most of the isolates were obtained from the AG1, and AG3 only contributed to two isolates.
Considering the advantages of biosurfactants produced by microorganisms, the aim of this paper was to perform the production and the characterization of a new biosurfactant produced by Streptomyces sp.
