Diversity of culturable bacteria associated with fruiting bodies of ectomycorrhizal fungi.
The diversity of the culturable bacteria associated with fruiting bodies of ectomycorrhizal fungi was studied. Gram-negative rods were the predominant type of bacteria isolated from inside the
Cellulolytic and pectolytic activity of streptomycetes isolated from root-free soil, rhizosphere and mycorrhizosphere of pine (Pinus sylvestris L.)
It is revealed that streptomycetes inhabiting root-free soil and the root zone of pine trees differ in their capacity to produce cellulolytic and pectolytic enzymes.
Enzymatic activity of ectendomycorrhizal fungi
Wilcoxina mikolae had the lowest enzymatic activities of all 11 strains compared, with the exception of those of the pectolytic enzymes, which were detected at considerably higher levels than that of the others.
Effect of pH on production of cytokinin-like substances by bacteria isolated from soil, rhizosphere and mycorrhizosphere of pine (Pinus silvestris L.).
Cytokinin-like substances were produced in higher amounts by soil isolates than by those isolated from the rhizosphere and mycorrhizosphere, and it is suggested that zeatin andZeatin riboside are likely to be among the cytokinin -like substances detected.
Production of auxins and gibberellin-like substances by mycorrhizal fungi, bacteria and actinomycetes isolated from soil and the mycorrhizosphere of pine (Pinus silvestris L.)
It was stated that auxins production is much more common among the root zone organisms of pine than the production of gibberellin-like substances.
Synthesis of enzymes connected with mycoparasitism by ectomycorrhizal fungi
The mycelium of T. harzianum turned out to be the best substrate for the induction of β-1,3-glucanases and β- glucosidases for both strains of L. laccata, although the difference in the inductionof chitinases in the presence of mycelia of different species of Trichoderma was not indicated.
