A biocontrol Streptomyces isolate (C) was tested for its plant growth promoting qualities under saline conditions. Exposure to elevated osmotic strengths up to 300 mM NaCl increased dry weight and cfu/ml significantly. The isolate C produced indolyl-3-acetic acid (IAA) into the medium in the amount of 2.4 μg/ml. The amount of auxin increased after adding(More)
Streptomyces commonly produce ectoines as compatible solutes to prevent osmotic stresses. Fine structure of the genes producing ectoine (ectC) and hydroxyectoine (ectD) enzymes in Streptomyces rimosus C-2012 as a slightly halophilic bacterium is reported in this study. Deduced amino acid sequences of ectC and ectD genes from strain C-2012 and some other(More)
Streptomyces strain C-2012 is a salt tolerant biocontrol PGPR that has been isolated from Iranian soil. The main aim of current study was finding strain C-2012 taxonomic position and to find the genes which are potentially involved in salt tolerance phenotype. Strain C-2012 chemotaxonomic, morphological and molecular characteristics indicate that this(More)
The study of the associations between morpho-agronomic traits of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) was based on different statistical methods. Seventy two recombinant inbred lines and twenty cultivars of common bean were used to record data on seed yield and 21 morpho-agronomic characters. Correlation analysis demonstrated that seed yield is highly(More)
Phytophthora drechsleri damping-off is one of the most important diseases of cucumber (Cucumis sativus). Salinity is a serious problem for crop production and affects diversity and activity of soil microorganisms. Application of salt-tolerant biocontrol agents may be beneficial in order to protect plants against pathogenic fungi in saline soils. In this(More)
