Name:   Filamentous soil bacterium (Streptomyces coelicoflavus )
Copyright:   Copyright 2011 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Description: Streptomyces coelicoflavus - Gram-positive, aerobic, filamentous septate, rod prokaryote (bacterium). Streptomyces species belong to the Actinomycetes group and are bacteria that share many characteristics with the fungi. They grow usually as filaments (chains of cells with septae) and often branch to form a network of filaments (mycelium) in the soil. At the tips of filaments spore chains of indefinite length develop (not seen in this image). These soil bacteria are responsible for the musty odor of soil. Some Streptomyces bacteria produce antibiotics such as streptomycin. Streptomyces coelicoflavus (also known as Actinomyces coelicoflavus) produces effective inhibitors of alpha-amylase, which could significantly depress blood glucose levels in mammalian systems and be developed towards a possible therapeutic agent for diabetes.
