  • Streptomyces strains isolated from soil were found to possess various numbers of genes from the streptomycin biosynthesis cluster.
  • Protein involved in the synthesis of streptomycin.
  • Myo-inositol, especially in combination with arginine, enhances streptomycin production.
  • The biosynthesis of streptomycin in Streptomyces griseus has been studied by adding D-[3,4-14C2]glucose or D-t1,3-14C2]glucose to the growth medium and degrading the streptomycin produced.


  • Streptomycin is applied as a potential control treatment for walnut blight.
  • Streptomycin is purified from the fermentation of the actinomycete Streptomyces griseus and used in a variety of pharmaceutical applications.
  • Streptomycin has an effect on arrhythmias induced by an increase of ventricular wall stress in the rat heart.
