Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria strain 2 was isolated from infected tomato seedlings grown in open field in Egypt. This strain produced irregular yellow-necrotic areas on tomato leaves and spotting of the stem. In an attempt to control this disease biologically, four experiments were conducted and tomato seedlings were pretreated, before the(More)
Biofilm-associated infections are becoming more common and occur largely because of the increase usage of indwelling medical devices (for example, the catheter). Bacterial biofilms, which are micro-colonies encased in extracellular polysaccharide material (slime) are the sources of many bacterial infections which is so difficult to respond to routine(More)
Xanthomonas compestris pv.cucurbitae strain 62 was isolated from diseased cucumber seedlings grown in an open field in Egypt and identified in this study. Inoculation of cucumber seedlings with this strain resulted in reduction of relative water content (RWC) and increase in free proline content of infected cotyledons. RWC was found to be decreased by the(More)

Ninety E. coli isolates were collected along the period of September to November 2012 from(More)
Erwinia herbicola strain 48 was isolated from diseased phaseolous seedlings and characterized by biochemical properties, cellular fatty acid analysis and SDS-PAGE of the soluble cell protein. Although cellular fatty acid profile and the soluble cellular protein pattern showed high degree of similarity in comparison to those from E. herbicola strain 347417,(More)
Article history: Received on: 07/04/2016 Revised on: 28/04/2016 Accepted on: 16/05/2016 Available online: 28/06/2016 Infection is an important cause of mortality in patients with burns. Rapid emergence of hospital pathogens and antibiotic-resistant organisms necessitate periodic evaluation of bacterial colonization patterns and antibiogram sensitivity in(More)
