The present data from literature on bio-active substances produced by aerobic sporulating bacteria of Bacillus genus are presented. Problems of antibiotics synthesis by bacilli are considered. The antibiotics under consideration are both well-known and new ones--biosurfactants characterized by the surface-active properties. Enzymic activity of Bacillus genus bacteria has been characterized. Special attention was given to the analysis of enzymes, which could play a positive part in the digestion processes. Data are presented which evidence that the bacilli produce the substances, which affect essentially the immune reactivity of the macroorganism.
