Detection of Pantoea ananatis, causal agent of leaf spot disease of maize, in Mexico
Bacterial isolates from maize plants showing a leaf spot disease were identified through molecular and phenotypic traits, showing that the isolates belong to Pantoea ananatis. Maize plants inoculatedExpand
Chromium Hyper-Tolerant Bacillus sp. MH778713 Assists Phytoremediation of Heavy Metals by Mesquite Trees (Prosopis laevigata)
Heavy metal accumulation in mesquite trees (Prosopis laevigata) growing in aluminum, titanium, chromium and zirconium-polluted soils of a semi-arid region in Mexico was investigated using wavelengthExpand
Genomic characterization of Ensifer aridi, a proposed new species of nitrogen-fixing rhizobium recovered from Asian, African and American deserts
BackgroundNitrogen fixing bacteria isolated from hot arid areas in Asia, Africa and America but from diverse leguminous plants have been recently identified as belonging to a possible new species ofExpand
Long-Chain Hydrocarbons (C21, C24, and C31) Released by Bacillus sp. MH778713 Break Dormancy of Mesquite Seeds Subjected to Chromium Stress
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by rhizobacteria have been proven to stimulate plant growth during germination and seedling stages. However, the modulating effect of bacterial volatiles onExpand
Diversity and phenotypic analyses of salt- and heat-tolerant wild bean Phaseolus filiformis rhizobia native of a sand beach in Baja California and description of Ensifer aridi sp. nov.
In northern Mexico, aridity, salinity and high temperatures limit areas that can be cultivated. To investigate the nature of nitrogen-fixing symbionts of Phaseolus filiformis, an adapted wild beanExpand
Bacillus cereus MH778713 elicits tomato plant protection against Fusarium oxysporum.
AIM The genus Fusarium comprises plant-pathogenic species with agricultural relevance. F. oxysporum causes tomato wilt disease with significant production losses. The use of agrochemicals to controlExpand
Potential seed germination-enhancing plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria for restoration of Pinus chiapensis ecosystems
Rhizosphere soil samples of three Pinus chiapensis sites were analyzed for their physicochemical properties, soil bacteria isolated and screened in vitro for growth-promoting abilities. Nine isolatesExpand
