Abstract : Studies were made of the culture and physiological properties of the breeding strains 396/18/1 and 12/13 of Actinomyces levoris Krass. Investigations of these strains were conducted on the following differential-diagnostic media: Czapek 1, organic 2, starch-ammonia, potato slices, and synthetic medium with carbohydrates. The investigated strains differed on three media in the nature of growth. The proteoloytic activity of strain 12/13 was higher than that of strain 396/18/1. Comparative study of the antibiotic activity of strains 396/18/1 and 12/13 under laboratory conditions showed that strain 12/13 is more active; its activity was 30-40% higher than that of the control.
