The efficiency of hydrolysis of fungal (Fusarium spp.) cell wall and rye root cell wall by crude enzymatic complexes from (42-day-old) cultures of three F. culmorum isolates, a plant growth–promoting rhizosphere isolate (PGPF) DEMFc2, a deleterious rhizosphere isolate (DRMO) DEMFc5, and a pathogenic isolate DEMFc37, as well as two other, pathogenic isolates(More)
Interactions of rye (Secale cereale) root border cells (RBCs), generated during plant growth and surrounding the root cap, with nonpathogenic rhizosphere Fusarium culmorum isolates: DEMFc2 (PGPF) and DEMFc5 (DRMO), and a pathogenic strain DEMFc37 were studied in test tube experiments. The effect of water-suspended RBCs released from the rye root cap on the(More)
Enzymatic assays and native PAGE were used to study trehalase and invertase activities, depending on culture age and different sugar conditions, in cell-free extracts, culture filtrates and ribosomal wash of Fusarium oxysporum. The activity of invertase preceded that of trehalase; in the exponential phase of growth, mainly invertase activity was produced,(More)
Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii exopolysaccharide (EPS) plays an important role in determining symbiotic competence. The pssA gene encoding the first glucosyl-IP-transferase and rosR encoding a positive transcriptional regulator are key genes involved in the biosynthesis and regulation of EPS production. Mutation in pssA resulted in deficiency in EPS(More)
We examined callase activity in anthers of sterile Allium sativum (garlic) and fertile Allium atropurpureum. In A. sativum, a species that produces sterile pollen and propagates only vegetatively, callase was extracted from the thick walls of A. sativum microspore tetrads exhibited maximum activity at pH 4.8, and the corresponding in vivo values ranged from(More)
Three different Fusarium culmorum strains having a pathogenic, a deleterious (deleterious rhizosphere microorganism), or a promoting (plant growth promoting fungus) effect on plant growth were studied for their ability to synthesize in vitro the phytohormones indoleacetic acid (IAA), gibberellic acid (GA), and ethylene. All the phytohormones tested were(More)
The aim of the present study was to find a possible relationship between the presence of yeast and filamentous fungi in hospital emergency departments and the activity levels of blood granulocytes and monocytes in emergency personnel. The study of mycological pollution was conducted in winter; the samples were collected from 10 Warsaw hospitals emergency(More)
OBJECTIVES Assessment of microbial air quality and surface contamination in ambulances and administration offices as a control place without occupational exposure to biological agents; based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi found in collected samples. MATERIAL AND METHODS The sampling was done by wet(More)
Mobilization of cadmium accumulated in Festuca ovina L. roots and simultaneous immobilization of this metal by soil were studied in three chambers connected into one system containing: (1) roots in an extractant solution, (2) soil in an extractant solution, and (3) extractant solution alone. Six extractants sterilized by filtration were used: 0.1 M NaNO3(More)
Fungal polysaccharides (PSs) are the subject of research in many fields of science and industry. Many properties of PSs have already been confirmed and the list of postulated functions continues to grow. Fungal PSs are classified into different groups according to systematic affinity, structure (linear and branched), sugar composition (homo- and(More)
