Isolation and characterization of a chlorpyrifos and 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol degrading bacterium.
A bacterium, isolated from contaminated soils around a chemical factory and named strain DSP3 was capable of biodegrading both chlorpyrifos and 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol. Based on the results ofExpand

Soil and plant specific effects on bacterial community composition in the rhizosphere
Eubacterial community structures in the plant rhizosphere were examined with respect to plant species, soil type, and root zone location. Three plant species (chickpea, rape and Sudan grass) wereExpand

Genome sequence of the plant-pathogenic bacterium Dickeya dadantii 3937.
Dickeya dadantii is a plant-pathogenic enterobacterium responsible for the soft rot disease of many plants of economic importance. We present here the sequence of strain 3937, a strain widely used asExpand

The Erwinia chrysanthemi type III secretion system is required for multicellular behavior.
Enterobacterial animal pathogens exhibit aggregative multicellular behavior, which is manifested as pellicles on the culture surface and biofilms at the surface-liquid-air interface. PellicleExpand

Genetic analysis of two phosphodiesterases reveals cyclic diguanylate regulation of virulence factors in Dickeya dadantii
Cyclic diguanylate (c‐di‐GMP) is a second messenger implicated in the regulation of various cellular properties in several bacterial species. However, its function in phytopathogenic bacteria is notExpand

The role of secretion systems and small molecules in soft-rot Enterobacteriaceae pathogenicity.
Soft-rot Enterobacteriaceae (SRE), which belong to the genera Pectobacterium and Dickeya, consist mainly of broad host-range pathogens that cause wilt, rot, and blackleg diseases on a wide range ofExpand

Dynamic regulation of GacA in type III secretion, pectinase gene expression, pellicle formation, and pathogenicity of Dickeya dadantii (Erwinia chrysanthemi 3937).
Dickeya dadantii (Erwinia chrysanthemi 3937) secretes exoenzymes, including pectin-degrading enzymes, leading to the loss of structural integrity of plant cell walls. A type III secretion systemExpand

Type III Secretion System Genes of Dickeya dadantii 3937 Are Induced by Plant Phenolic Acids
Background Dickeya dadantii is a broad-host range phytopathogen. D. dadantii 3937 (Ech3937) possesses a type III secretion system (T3SS), a major virulence factor secretion system in manyExpand
