Conditions for effcient formation and regeneration of protoplasts of Micromonospora rosaria and Micromonospora purpurea were investigated. The state of inoculm, culture stage and growth in a medium containing partially growth-inhibiting concentration of glycing have significant effects on portoplasting. A high frequency of regeneration (up to 30%) was accomplished with a hypertonic regeneration agar medium defined by Okanishi for Strptomyces. Using the optimal conditions for protroplasting and regeneration, protoplast fusion of auxotrophic M.rosaria was carried out. Polyethylene glycol 1,000 was chosen for fusogenic agent. When signgle auxotrophs were used, the recombinant frequency of auxortrophic markers varied from 1.3 to 3.2%. Using two double auxotrophs, the recombinant frequencies of 0.7-4.3% were obtained. Much lower frequencies(three or more orders of magnitude) were observed by the conventional matings.
