Bacterial-Fungal Interactions: Hyphens between Agricultural, Clinical, Environmental, and Food Microbiologists
SUMMARY Bacteria and fungi can form a range of physical associations that depend on various modes of molecular communication for their development and functioning. These bacterial-fungal interactionsExpand

The mycorrhiza helper Pseudomonas fluorescens BBc6R8 has a specific priming effect on the growth, morphology and gene expression of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Laccaria bicolor S238N.
The mycorrhiza helper Pseudomonas fluorescens BBc6R8 promotes the presymbiotic survival and growth of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Laccaria bicolor S238N in the soil. An in vitro fungal-bacterialExpand

Rhizosphere bacterial communities associated with disease suppressiveness stages of take-all decline in wheat monoculture.
The decline of take-all disease (Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici), which may take place during wheat monocropping, involves plant-protecting, root-colonizing microorganisms. So far, however,Expand

The sigma factor sigma s affects antibiotic production and biological control activity of Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf-5.
Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf-5, a rhizosphere-inhabiting bacterium that suppresses several soilborne pathogens of plants, produces the antibiotics pyrrolnitrin, pyoluteorin, andExpand

The two-component regulators GacS and GacA influence accumulation of the stationary-phase sigma factor sigmaS and the stress response in Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf-5.
Three global regulators are known to control antibiotic production by Pseudomonas fluorescens. A two-component regulatory system comprised of the sensor kinase GacS (previously called ApdA or LemA)Expand

Changes in population structure of the soilborne fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici during continuous wheat cropping.
A method was developed to assess the genetic structure of Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici (Ggt) populations and test the hypothesis of an association between disease level in the field withExpand

Efficient mineral weathering is a distinctive functional trait of the bacterial genus Collimonas
The mineral weathering ability of 45 bacterial strains belonging to the genus Collimonas and coming from various terrestrial environments was compared to that of 5 representatives from the closelyExpand

The biocontrol bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf29Arp strain affects the pathogenesis‐related gene expression of the take‐all fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici on wheat roots
SUMMARY The main effects of antagonistic rhizobacteria on plant pathogenic fungi are antibiosis, fungistasis or an indirect constraint through the induction of a plant defence response. To exploreExpand

Inter-kingdom encounters: recent advances in molecular bacterium–fungus interactions
Interactions between bacteria and fungi are well known, but it is often underestimated how intimate and decisive such associations can be with respect to behaviour and survival of each participatingExpand

Development of a 16S rRNA microarray approach for the monitoring of rhizosphere Pseudomonas populations associated with the decline of take-all disease of wheat
Abstract So far, the analysis of microbial populations associated with wheat monocropping-induced decline of take-all disease ( Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici ) has focused mainly on culturableExpand
