Diversity of Bacteria Associated with Bursaphelenchus xylophilus and Other Nematodes Isolated from Pinus pinaster Trees with Pine Wilt Disease
A high diversity of the microbial community associated with B. xylophilus and other nematodes isolated from P. pinaster with PWD showed the ability to produce siderophores and lipases enables these bacteria to have a role in plant physiological response.
Diversity of cloacal microbial community in migratory shorebirds that use the Tagus estuary as stopover habitat and their potential to harbor and disperse pathogenic microorganisms.
Unexpectedly, bacteria from the phylum Deinococcus-Thermus were isolated in shorebirds and were present in all the bird species studied.
The Microbiome of Endophytic, Wood Colonizing Bacteria from Pine Trees as Affected by Pine Wilt Disease
In the first stages of the disease, the defence mechanisms of plants are repressed by the pathogen, resulting in a colonization of the wood interior by soil microorganisms, and diversity of wood endophytic bacteria increased with the severity of the diseases.
Belowground Microbiota and the Health of Tree Crops
The methodological approaches to unravel the composition and function of belowground microbiota, the factors influencing their interaction with tree crops, their benefits and harms are summarized, with a focus on representative examples of Biological Control Agents used against relevant biotic constraints of tree crops.
Understanding pine wilt disease: roles of the pine endophytic bacteria and of the bacteria carried by the disease‐causing pinewood nematode
The possible roles of nematode‐carried bacteria in PWD are reviewed, what could be the definition of this group of microorganisms and their origin as possible endophytes are questioned and their relation within the endophytic community of pine trees is discussed.
Nematicidal Bacteria Associated to Pinewood Nematode Produce Extracellular Proteases
Nematicidal assays revealed differences in nematicidal activity of the proteases to different species of Bursaphelenchus, suggesting its usefulness in a primary screen of the nematodes.
Chitinophaga costaii sp. nov., an endophyte of Pinus pinaster, and emended description of Chitinophaga niabensis.
The phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data presented indicate that strain A37T2(T) represents a novel species of the genus Chitinophaga, for which the name Chit inophaga costaii sp.
Draft Genome Sequence of Serratia sp. Strain M24T3, Isolated from Pinewood Disease Nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus
ABSTRACT Here we report the draft genome sequence of Serratia sp. strain M24T3, which is associated with pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, the causative agent of pine wilt disease.
Virulence factors and infection ability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from a hydropathic facility and respiratory infections
To compare the virulence pool and acute infection ability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from a hydropathic facility, used to treat respiratory conditions by inhalation of untreated natural
Mucilaginibacter pineti sp. nov., isolated from Pinus pinaster wood from a mixed grove of pines trees.
Bacterial strain M47C3B(T) was isolated from the endophytic microbial community of a Pinus pinaster tree branch from a mixed grove of pines and proposed as Mucilaginibacter pineti sp.
