Bacterial endophytes in agricultural crops
Historically, endophytic bacteria have been thought to be weakly virulent plant pathogens but have recently been discovered to have several beneficial effects on host plants, such as plant growth promotion and increased resistance against plant pathogens and parasites. Expand
Endophytic Colonization of Plants by the Biocontrol Agent Rhizobium etli G12 in Relation to Meloidogyne incognita Infection.
ABSTRACT The external and internal colonization of potato and Arabidopsis roots by the biocontrol strain Rhizobium etli G12 containing a plasmidborne trp promoter green fluorescent proteinExpand
Interactions between Meloidogyne incognita and endophytic bacteria in cotton and cucumber
Understanding of complex associations between endophytic bacteria and M. incognita will aid efforts to develop and manage microbial communities of endophytes for practical use as biocontrol agents against plant-parasitic nematodes and soil-borne pests and pathogens. Expand
Immunological detection and localization of the cotton endophyte Enterobacter asburiae JM22 in different plant species
Enterobacter asburiae colonizes different plant species and establishes endophytic populations in various tissues and showed an intensive gold label in drop preparations of bacterial suspensions in phosphate buffer, plant sap, and ultrathin sections of plant tissue. Expand
Bacterial endophytes in cotton: mechanisms of entering the plant
Investigations were conducted to determine how a systemic plant-colonizing bacterium Enterobacter asburiae JM22 enters cotton plant tissues, a plant growth-promoting strain with biocontrol potential against various pathogens. Expand
Bacterial endophytes in cotton: location and interaction with other plant-associated bacteria
Investigations were conducted to determine if biological control agent Pseudomonas fluorescens 89B-61 could colonize cotton tissues systemically and if internal colonization by a known endophyticExpand
