Natural products have provided valuable leads for drug design and development, and it is recognized that bacteria from Streptomycetaceae and Pseudonocardiaceae families are among the most prolific producers of natural products that have been developed into drugs. However, pharmaceutical companies have deemphasized their natural products discovery programs in the last decades. At the sam...
Attini ants cultivate Basidiomycetes, with which they maintain a permanent and obligatory symbiotic association. To help prevent nest infection by parasites, ants have adopted several mechanisms, including an association with symbiotic Actinobacteria of the genus Pseudonocardia that produce secondary metabolites which specifically suppresses the parasite Escovopsis. Studies on the asso...
