Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are known to confer disease resistance to plants. Bacillus sp. JS demonstrated antifungal activities against five fungal pathogens in in vitro assays. To verify whether the volatiles of Bacillus sp. JS confer disease resistance, tobacco leaves pre-treated with the volatiles were damaged by the fungal pathogen,(More)
A previous study revealed that IbEF1 from sweet potato promoted early flowering in transgenic tobacco and acted as a novel regulator involved in flowering time control. Two putative ortholog genes were found in N. tabacum: NtEF1 and NtEF2. Subcellular localization of NtEF1 and NtEF2 with an in vivo targeting approach revealed that NtEF1 and NtEF2 were(More)
Specific bacterial strains that promote plant growth have been investigated extensively and are characterized as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). To identify the series of genes involved in PGPR-mediated enhanced plant growth, suppression subtractive hybridization was performed using cDNA from tobacco plants exposed to the PGPR strain, Bacillus(More)
