Actinobacteria in Earthworm Cast and Gut: Distribution and Bioactivities

Actinobacteria in Earthworm Cast and Gut: Distribution and Bioactivities

Earthworms, cast and gut are potential sources of high biotechnological interest because of its great

diversity of compounds exhibiting a broad spectrum of biological activities. To date, researchers

focusing on novel microbes in unusual and unexplored ecosystems. Actinobacteria are unique

secondary metabolites producers having versatile bioactive compounds with industrial importance.

The earthworm, earthworm gut and earthworm cast are less explored for actinobacteria having

bioactive compounds. This review clearly says that the earthworms and its associated microbes can

largely explored for bioprospecting, especially actinobacteria. By the way developing and conserving

the earthworm diversity is playing a major role in economic development of country.
