The functional metagenomic screening of the microbial communities associated with a temperate marine sponge and a green alga identified three novel hydrolytic enzymes with antibacterial activities. The results suggest that uncultured alpha- and gamma proteobacteria contain new classes of proteins that may be a source of antibacterial agents. © 2011, American Society for Microbiology.
