Thermophilic and alkaliphilic Actinobacteria: biology and potential applications.

Shivlata L, Satyanarayana T - Front Microbiol (2015)

Bottom Line: Microbes belonging to the phylum Actinobacteria are prolific sources of antibiotics, clinically useful bioactive compounds and industrially important enzymes.The focus of the current review is on the diversity and potential applications of thermophilic and alkaliphilic actinobacteria, which are highly diverse in their taxonomy and morphology with a variety of adaptations for surviving and thriving in hostile environments.The specific metabolic pathways in these actinobacteria are activated for elaborating pharmaceutically, agriculturally, and biotechnologically relevant biomolecules/bioactive compounds, which find multifarious applications.

Figure 4: Application of important enzymes produced by thermophilic and alkaliphilic actinobacteria.

Mentions: Other than the listed uses, thermophilic and alkaliphilic actinobacteria produce a number of enzymes (amylase, proteases, lipase, cellulase, xylanase, inulinase, dextranase, and keratinase; Table 5) which are being produced commercially and used in industries all over the world (shown in Figure 4). Some important actinobacterial enzymes are briefly described below.
