Abstract

A purple-colored bacterium was isolated from the body of a marine sponge Adocia sp. The culture of this bacterial isolate produced a substance which inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis. The substance was purified and consequently identified by various spectrometric methods as o-aminophenol. Moreover, the extract of the host sponge did not contain any antimicrobial activity against these two Gram-positive bacteria.
