Things can generate immune response: pathogen, antigen, allergen, hapten, all comes from amino acids/peptide/protein 8)

Australopithecus africanus

An ape that lived about three million years ago that is believed to be the ancestor of the genus Homo, and therefor the ancestor of modern-day humans.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Hey what happened to this thread? Let's bring it back to life:
Streptomyces noursei
Only one of the species of the Streptomyces genus that produces antibiotics. Over 500 different antibiotics have been isolated from bacteria belonging to the streptomyces genus. this particular species produces an antibiotic called micostatine(translation?)

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to come up with an answer. I feel proud to have stumped everyone for so long. Now I just have to figure out how to unstump myself and come up with an answer to MrMistery's post! :P

People weren't stumped, there are a lot of organisms whose names begin with S.
PS: I chose that species on purpose, to get a more interesting letter.

hmm? I think I just read that the other day,
but alas it has fled from my brain. :oops:

Is micostatine an anti biotic and anti -fungal?
Or am I thinking of something else?

what happened to DRStein
I miss her, and her funny posts.
