It is well known that Streptomyces produces beneficial pharmaceuticals, particularly antibiotics and anticancer agents. This investigation uncovered 34 randomly selected streptomycetes isolates in sediment, marine water, soil, and other habitats. Using a qualitative rapid plate assay to test for GluNase synthesis, 9 of them produced a significant amount of L-glutamine pink colour.The maximum levels of GluNase synthesis were obtained at a pH of 7.5, an incubation temperature of 40 °C, and the utilization of glucose and peptone as the carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively.
