Antimicrobial Activity of Bacillus Sp. Isolated Strains of Wild Honey

Honey has been used in ancient medicine as a beneficial aliment. It has a wonderful effect on wound healing, bedsore, and ulcer treatment. Recently, the spread of multidrug-resistant bacteria has posed a threat to human health, likely resulting in the extinction of human generations. Natural products of bacteria are the primary source of progressive antibiotics, which may be a suitable for antibiotic discovery. Finding new antibiotics, on the other hand, is extremely difficult at the industrial level and demands the use of novel approaches. Different micro- biome, such as archaea, bacteria, and fungi, have introduced and produced antimicrobial chemicals.

In humans and animals, around twelve natural products are known to cure Gram-positive or Gram-negative bacterial infections. Recognizing this, the researchers investigated antibacterial activity of Bacillus sp. strains, which were isolated and identified for the first time from wild honey collected in Khuzestan Province, Iran.

The bacterial isolates from the wild honey inhibited the growth of phytopathogenic and human fungi. And it had a suitable antimicrobial and antifungal potential which needed to be taken for further pharmaceutical research.
