Abstract :

Microorganisms are well known for their beneficial characters to human out of their infectious disease causing ability. Out of their vast diversity few class of extremophiles are well known for their ability to produce to novel bioactive compounds which act against deadly diseases and disorders. Halophiles are known for their ability to produce some rare secondary metabolites, enzymes and peptides among the group of extremophiles. In the process of screening bioactive compound from halophilic microorganisms two potential actinomycetes were isolated from salt pan near suburban of Mumbai (Maharashtra, India). Anti-infective screening of fermented crude extract against drug resistant human pathogenic shown promising activity in the present study.
