Abstract

In this study, 65 soil samples from underneath identified plants were collected upsfeam along the Melalap river. One hundred and thirty-six actinomycetes and ten microflrngi were isolated using selective isolation methods. These pure isolates were cultured aerobically for secondary metabolite production. They were screened for inhibitors against three yeast-based molecular targeted screenings: protein phosphatase 1 (PPl), glycogen syrthase kinas€ 3p (GSK-39), Ras/ Raf-l protein-protein interaction, aad two Mycob acterium-based screening systems: isocitrate lyase (ICL) of the glyoxylate pathway and PhoP-PhoR two component signal transduction system. Three extracts (H11329, Hi i337 andHl1402) were toxic to yeast in Ras/Raf-l screening, nine extracts were toxic to yeast in PPl screening (Hl1293, H11298, Hl1300, H11301, Ht 1302, H11304, Hll3l7, H11339 and H11402). One actinomycete strain Hl1299 showed weak inlfbition to PP I . Two extacts (H 1 1 329 and II1 13 64) showed weak inhibitory activify and tlree extracts (Hl1339, H11337, Hll402) showed toxicity in the GSK-39 yeast screening. Five extracts (H11310, H11317, H11337, H11346 and H11383) showed toxic effect in the ICL screening system, and one extract (Hl1392) possibly showed weak inhibition to the PhoP-PhoR two component system. It is interesting that Hl 1383 has th€ same inhibition characteristic as H7763, a presumptive ICL inhibitor with a wide partial inhibition zone on acetate plate (Dain, 2003).
