Marine bacterial sources of bioactive compounds

Jaiganesh R, Sampath Kumar NS


Thousands of novel compounds have been isolated from various marine bacteria and tested for pharmacological properties, many of which are commercially available. Many more are being tested as potential bioactive compound at the preclinical and clinical stages. The growing interest in marine-derived antiviral compounds, along with the development of new technology in marine cultures and extraction, will significantly expedite the current exploration of the marine environment for compounds with significant pharmacological applications, which will continue to be a promising strategy and new trend for modern medicine. Marine actinomycetes and cyanobacteria are a prolific but underexploited source for the discovery of novel secondary metabolites.

Keywords:marine bacteria and tested for pharmacological properties,marine environment for compounds with significant pharmacological applications,Marine actinomycetes and cyanobacteria.
