 The effect of the interaction between a vesicular-arbuscular (VA)-mycorrhiza (Glomus intraradices no. LAP8) and Streptomyces coelicolor strain no. 2389 on the growth response, nutrition and metabolic activities of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) plants grown in non-sterilized soil amended with chitin waste was studied in a greenhouse over 8 weeks. Chitin(More)
The influence of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Glomus deserticola (Trappe and John) on plant growth, nutrition, flower yield, water relations, chlorophyll (Chl) contents and water-use efficiency (WUE) of snapdragon (Antirhinum majus cv. butterfly) plants were studied in potted culture under well-watered (WW) and water-stress (WS) conditions. The(More)
Rice brown spot, caused by Bipolaris oryzae, can be a serious disease causing a considerable yield loss. Trichoderma harzianum is an effective biocontrol agent for a number of plant fungal diseases. Thus, this research was carried out to investigate the mechanisms of action by which T. harzianum antagonizes Bipolaris oryzae in vitro, and the efficacy of(More)
Histochemical staining of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) activities in four arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Glomus intraradices, G. fasciculatum, G. monosporum and G. mosseae) and their relation to growth and metabolic activities of soybean plants were investigated in a greenhouse experiment. In general, mycorrhizal inoculation(More)
A pot experiment was conducted to examine the effects of three different arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, Glomus mosseae, G. deserticola and Gigaspora gergaria, on growth and nutrition of wheat (Triticum aestivium L. cv. Henta) plants grown in saline soil. Under saline condition, mycorrhizal inoculation significantly increased growth responses, nutrient(More)
and the two pod rot pathogens Fusarium solani and Rhizoctonia solani and subsequent effects on growth and yield of peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) plants were investigated in a greenhouse over a 5-month period. At plant maturity, inoculation with F. solani and/or R. solani significantly reduced shoot and root dry weights, pegs and pod number and seed weight of(More)
We studied the effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus, Glomus constrictum (Trappe), and soil phosphorus (P) on gas-exchange parameters, growth, and nutrition of soybean plants grown in pots with sterilized soil. Two contrasting concentrations of KH2PO4, i.e. no added and 0.5 g(P) kg−1(soil), were used. Addition of soluble phosphate increased all(More)
The bioherbicidal efficacy of different alginate formulations of Alternaria eichhorniae 5 (isolate Ae5), a virulent Egyptian isolate, was compared on waterhyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes). The fungus was formulated as alginate pellets containing mycelium alone, mycelium plus culture filtrate or culture filtrate alone. Each formulation was applied with and(More)
A greenhouse experiment was conducted to study the response of soybean (Glycine max) to inoculation with the vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungusGlomus mosseae at flowering and maturity stages of plant growth. Fungal succinate dehydrogenase and alkaline phosphatase activities as enzyme markers were also studied to detect the physiological activity of the(More)
Recombinant technology has crucial impact in therapy development. In microbial environment, Pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus produces alpha hemolysin protein. This protein is used as anticancer protein. In our study, alpha hemolysin toxin (hia) gene was isolated from S. aureus isolate. The isolate of S. aureus was isolated from blood(More)
