Bacillus pasteurii info needed - (Feb/25/2005 )

Hi to everyone!

I have isolated from a german soil a strain bacillar Gram + and sporulated, antibiotic productor. Using a Bacillus Indentification Test, I have identified it like Bacillus pasteurii (I think the correct name is Sporosarcina pasteurii).

The problem is Id like to know if anybody have described Bacillus pasteurii as a antibiotic productor before, and in this case, what substance could be. I find no data base about this kind of information in the Web (maybe due the industrial secret?) only taxonomic and poorly descriptive bases. I will thank you very much if could link me to any interesting page in this sense.

Sorry for my loathing english and congratulations for this forum.
