Bacteriology Congress 2018: Treasures from mangrove forest: Discovery of novel streptomycetes and their bio-active potentials: Learn-Han Lee, Monash University Malaysia

The striking commitment of organisms towards the region of medication revelation has at last improved human government assistance around the world. This is because of their capacity in delivering different valuable characteristic items which later turned into the wellspring of endless dynamic elements of prescriptions. In such manner, microscopic organisms having a place with the sort Streptomyces have been recognized as the makers of numerous bioactive mixes, which makes them to be significant microorganisms for tranquilize revelation. Streptomyces is reported as the significant variety of the request Streptomycetales inside the class Actinobacteria. Streptomycetes are mind boggling filamentous Gram-positive microbes with morphology takes after those of parasites. The unpredictability of streptomycetes can be seen through their confounded formative life cycle and their enormous genome size of more than 8 Mbp with high G + C content, often related with their capacity to thrive and get by in various situations. Studies additionally uncovered the nearness of more than 20 biosynthetic quality bunches identified with biosynthesis of auxiliary metabolites in the enormous genome of streptomycetes. This may represent the creation of basically different bioactive auxiliary metabolites. Because of the creation of different valuable mixes from streptomycetes including catalysts, colors, and mixes having antimicrobial, anticancer, cell reinforcement, immunosuppressive and other significant bioactivities, these microbes have been extraordinarily investigated for wide-scope of utilizations. As of now, there are around 843 Streptomyces species confined from various conditions. As of late, scientists communicated enthusiasm for looking for novel streptomycetes from underexplored territories to build the probabilities of finding new mixes or remedial specialists. Mangrove situations are frequently underexplored yet contains great assets for the disconnection of novel streptomycetes. It is realized that the mangrove situations are continually encountering natural varieties, for example, changes in flowing inclination and saltiness. Regardless of these dynamic natural elements, mangrove woodlands have consistently been home to different plants and creatures. Rather, these uncommon ecological changes might be the main impetus for the improvement of microbial species assorted variety and adjustment of metabolic pathways that could be capable to create certain novel properties of microorganisms. In this specific situation, the investigation of streptomycetes from mangrove may give a superior possibility of revealing novel Streptomyces spp. which may in this manner achieve the revelation of significant bioactive particles. Analysts are still effectively examining the assorted variety of the microbial network in the phylum Actinobacteria starting from various conditions and nations, frequently because of their environmental significance and biotechnological benefits. In any case, there are predetermined number of studies provided details regarding the assorted variety of streptomycetes particularly in Malaysia and in this manner the number of inhabitants in this microscopic organisms in Malaysia situations are inadequately comprehended. Late investigations give an expanding proof on novel Streptomyces spp. separated from Malaysia mangrove backwoods that could be significant asset for cell reinforcement and anticancer mixes. For models, unrefined concentrates of Streptomyces antioxidans sp. nov. MUSC 164T and Streptomyces mangrovisoli sp. nov. MUSC 149T showed solid cancer prevention agent movement. Streptomyces malaysiense sp. nov. MUSC 136T found was found to have solid cell reinforcement movement and display high cytotoxicity against colon malignant growth cell line HCT-116. Malaysia is classified as a mangrove-rich nation in Asia and numerous mangrove regions in Sarawak are for the most part in perfect state. Subsequently, this makes a significant chance to investigate the streptomycetes present in Sarawak mangrove woodland along with their cancer prevention agent and cytotoxic possibilities.


Common mixes have assumed a basic job in forestalling or rewarding disease, which is a significant general wellbeing concern. It is realized that the improvement of malignancy is connected to oxidative pressure - a condition perceived by the unevenness between creation of responsive oxygen species (ROS) and the ability to check the harm brought about by ROS through cancer prevention agents. There is no uncertainty that scientists have been constantly searching for compelling regular cell reinforcement and anticancer specialists from normal sources including microorganisms. For example, an ongoing report detailed the disclosure of three unadulterated mixes having cancer prevention agent action from a mangrove-determined Streptomyces coelicoflavus BC 01, in particular 5-amino-2-(6-(2-hydroxyethyl)- 3-oxononyl) cyclohex-2-enone (BC 01_C1), 8-(aminomethyl)- 7-hydroxy-1-(1-hydroxy-4-(hydroxylmethoxy)- 2,3-dimethylbutyl)- 2-methyl dodecahydro phenanthren-9(1H)- one (BC 01_C2), and 1-((E)- 2-ethylhex-1-en-1-yl)2-((E)- 2-ethylidenehexyl)cyclohexane-1,2-dicarboxylate (BC 01_C3). Aside from that, two novel bioactive mixes known as neoantimycins An and B were found from mangrove-determined Streptomyces antibioticus H12-1543. The mixes indicated cytotoxicity against human bosom adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cell line (IC50 > 50 µg/mL by the two mixes), human glioblastoma (SF-268) cell line (IC50 of 33.6 µg/mL by neoantimycin An; IC50 of 41.6 µg/mL by neoantimycin B), and human lung malignant growth (NCl-H460) cell line (IC50 > 50 µg/mL by the two mixes found a compound known as 2-methyl butyl propyl phthalate created by mangrove-inferred Streptomyces cheonanensis VUK-A, which applied critical cytotoxic impact on human bosom adenocarcinoma (MDA-MB-231), human cervical disease (HeLa), human ovarian sore adenocarcinoma (OAW42), and MCF-7 cell lines. Indeed, the variety Streptomyces is a decent wellspring of chemotherapeutic operators confirmed through the revelation of a few clinically significant anticancer drugs, for example, mitomycin C45, dactinomycin46, doxorubicin (equivalent word adriamycin), and bleomycin. This investigation intends to investigate the assorted variety of Streptomyces spp. from mangrove in Sarawak and screen them to decide likely hotspots for cell reinforcement and cytotoxic optional metabolites. Sarawak mangrove woods for the most part stays undisturbed, therefore it is predicted that this area could give a rich flexibly of actinobacteria. As far as we could possibly know, this is the primary report on the decent variety and bioactive properties of streptomycetes from mangrove situations in Sarawak..

Abstract :

Cancer remains as one of the major economy burden globally, mainly due to aging and growth of the world population. Due to the repercussions of growing financial and economic costs in dealing with cancer, the search for more potent and effective drugs in healthcare has been prioritised to prevent and combat its occurrence. Microorganisms has been recognized as “mini-factories” which are capable of synthesizing interesting bioactive natural compounds with reasonable cost. The genus Streptomyces stands out in terms of manufacturing bioactive metabolites reserves. With commercial drugs such as doxorubicin and actinomycin which were derived from Streptomyces are widely accepted and still in use as drugs in clinical settings.
