Actinomycetes are the most accustomed biotic component of almost all the subterranean caves of the world. The smell of this particular microorganism is indeed a typical characteristic of all the caves. Moreover, the Streptomyces sps. are also found to be highly useful for its highly potent enzyme producing properties, useful for various biotechnological tools and also medically useful antibiotic properties. In the present study the molecular confirmation of a particular actinomycete species Streptomyces prasinosporus occurring at various habitats of Kotumsar cave has been confirmed. Further the endo and exoenzyme secretion capacities of two important enzymes of the same actinomycete have been compared with respect to its occurrences in various cave habitats.
