Plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria.
Several microbes promote plant growth, and many microbial products that stimulate plant growth have been marketed. In this review we restrict ourselves to bacteria that are derived from and exertExpand

Molecular determinants of rhizosphere colonization by Pseudomonas.
Rhizosphere colonization is one of the first steps in the pathogenesis of soilborne microorganisms. It can also be crucial for the action of microbial inoculants used as biofertilizers,Expand

Molecular basis of plant growth promotion and biocontrol by rhizobacteria.
Plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs) are used as inoculants for biofertilization, phytostimulation and biocontrol. The interactions of PGPRs with their biotic environment, for example withExpand

Rhizoremediation: a beneficial plant-microbe interaction.
Worldwide, contamination of soil and ground water is a severe problem. The negative effects of pollutants on the environment and on human health are diverse and depend on the nature of the pollution.Expand

Electrophoretic resolution of the ‘major outer membrane protein’ of Escherichia coli K12 into four bands
The cell envelope of Enterobacteriaceae consists of two membranes separated by a peptidoglycan layer. Methods have been developed to separate the cytoplasmic membrane from the outer membrane. TheExpand

Promoters in the nodulation region of the Rhizobium leguminosarum Sym plasmid pRL1JI
A region of 16.8 kb of the Sym(biosis) plasmid pRL1JI of Rhizobium leguminosarum, consisting of the established 9.7 kb nodulation region which confers nodulation ability on Vicia hirsuta and a regionExpand

A novel highly unsaturated fatty acid moiety of lipo-oligosaccharide signals determines host specificity of Rhizobium
In Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae, the nodABCand nodFEL operons are involved in the production of lipo-oligosaccharide signals which mediate host specificity. The structure of theseExpand

Organic acids, sugars, and L-tryptophane in exudates of vegetables growing on stonewool and their effects on activities of rhizosphere bacteria.
The influence of stonewool substrate on the exudation of the major soluble carbon nutrients and of the auxin precursor tryptophane for Pseudomonas biocontrol agents was studied. To this end, theExpand

Novel aspects of tomato root colonization and infection by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. radicis-lycopersici revealed by confocal laser scanning microscopic analysis using the green fluorescent protein
The fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. radicis-lycopersici is the causal agent of tomato foot and root rot disease. The green fluorescent protein (GFP) was used to mark this fungus in order toExpand

Flagella-driven chemotaxis towards exudate components is an important trait for tomato root colonization by Pseudomonas fluorescens.
Motility is a major trait for competitive tomato root-tip colonization by Pseudomonas fluorescens. To test the hypothesis that this role of motility is based on chemotaxis toward exudate components,Expand
