Twenty different isolates of actinomycetes collected from different localities in Valsad, were screened for melanin pigment production and isolate S1 found to be highest producer of melanin. At 30˚C melanin pigment was produced and confirmed using L-DOPA (as substrate) optimum carbon and nitrogen for melanin production was found to be 10.4 and 31.3 respectively. Melanin was successfully extracted in a crude form and used for the antimicrobial activity against selected microorganism.
