To screen high-yield teicoplanin-producing strain, 60Co γ-ray irradiated spore suspension of the strain Actinoplanes teichomyceticus FIM-16 was spread on regenerating plate containing lethal concentration of teicoplanin. Teicoplanin-resistant mutants were picked and screened by shake-flask fermentation. Strain FIM-16-58 showed two times higher teicoplanin yield than the original strain, and demonstrated higher hereditary stability. There was no obvious effect on the fermentation level of the strain over three generations, and its slope was stable at 4 ℃ for two months. During scale-up experiment in the 1 T fermenter, foam was suppressed effectively by adding 0.1% corn oil, and the yield of teicoplanin reached over 5.0 g/L. Therefore, the high-yield strain laid the foundation of its industrial production and fermentation.

Key words: Actinoplanes teichomyceticus, Resistance mutation screening, Radiation mutagenesis, Teicoplanin
