Actinomycetes are a group of gram-positive microorganisms some of which can produce unique bioactive compounds. These micro-organisms are found in a wide range of aquatic and terrestrial environments and when faced with harsh conditions have the ability to activate the metabolic pathways that ensure their survival. The unique bioactive compounds which may be produced through this process may have commercial applications…Read More
Recently Actinogen has acquired Celgenics, a company advanced in the research on Cancer Stem Cells. Current theory suggests that Cancer tumours may contain a tiny proportion of Cancer Stem Cells and that they may be resistant to current chemotherapy. Cancer Stem Cells may remain after primary chemotherapy and subsequently replicate to give rise to fatal secondary cancer development...Read More
Historically a large percentage of the world’s antibiotics have been found initially in a group of micro-organisms known collectively as actinomycetes. Anti-cancer agents and other interesting bioactive compounds have also been detected in actinomycetes. Currently throughout the world there are a series of institutes...Read More
