  • Abstract

    The present study was designed to screen the antidermatophytic activity of marine Streptomyces isolated from the aquatic environments of the coastal region of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Actinobacteria exhibiting antidermatophytic activity against Trichophyton rubrum were identified among 100 isolates by cross streak method. Among them only 2 isolates, namely DKD 6 and DKD 7 exhibiting potential antidermatophytic activity were further characterized for cultural conditions and morphology. Based on these observations the two strains were assigned to the genus Streptomyces. The soil samples
    collected were also analyzed for various physico-chemical parameters and correlated with the total actinomycetes population (TAP) using SPSS package, the results of which indicated the absence of correlation between the parameters and TAP.
