ABSTRACT
A total of 30 Actinomycetes were isolated from soil sample of Wular Lake of Kashmir region and characterized for morphological identification and evaluated for antibacterial activity. Out of these actinomycetes isolated, four actinomycetes showed antimicrobial activity against selected bacterial pathogens. Furthermore during screening using agar diffusion assay a total four actinomycetes isolates were found active against  MTCC cultures Including Bacillus subtilis (MTCC 441),  Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MTCC 4673), Staphylococcus aureus  (MTCC 3160), Pseudomonas fluorescens (MTCC 103),Mycobacterium smegmatis (MTCC 994), E. coli (MTCC 443) and Streptococcus mutans (MTCC 890). The study indicated that Wular Lake of Kashmir had diverse group of actinomycetes with broad spectrum antimicrobial activity.
