Antibiotic activity of new cyanobacterial isolates from Australia and Asia against green algae and cyanobacteria

Schlegel, I; Doan, N; de Chazel, Nola; Smith, Geoffrey D


One hundred and ninety-eight cyanobacterial strains, newly isolated mainly from samples collected from diverse habitats in Australia, Indonesia, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam, were screened from their antibiotic activity against green algal species of the genera Coelastrum, Scenedesmus and Monoraphidium. We report the discovery of ten strains of Fischerella, seven of Nostoc and three of Calothrix that produce antialgal compounds with a broad activity spectrum. Some of these bioactive...[Show more]
