Drought tolerant endophytic actinobacteria Streptomyces coelicolor DE07, S. olivaceus DE10 and Streptomyces geysiriensis DE27 were isolated from cultivated plants of arid and drought affected regions of Rajasthan, India. These isolates exhibited plant growth promotion traits and intrinsic water stress tolerance from −0.05 to −0.73 MPa. Maximum auxin(More)
Methylotrophic bacteria were isolated from the phyllosphere of different crop plants such as sugarcane, pigeonpea, mustard, potato and radish. The methylotrophic isolates were differentiated based on growth characteristics and colony morphology on methanol supplemented ammonium mineral salts medium. Amplification of the mxaF gene helped in the(More)
Indigenous phosphate-solubilizing microorganisms (PSM) were studied in the rhizosphere and non-rhizosphere of salt-affected soils. A total of 23 phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) and 35 phosphate-solubilizing fungi (PSF) were isolated from 19 samples collected from different locations in Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh of India. The counts of PSB and PSF(More)
The authors have reported the use of nanopolymers for the inhibition of shrimp pathogenic bacteria for aquaculture use. The antimicrobial activity of polyethylene glycols based amphiphilic polymers have different linker molecules such as suberic acid, adipic acid, glutaric acid and dimethyl-5-hydroxyisophthalate on Vibrio harveyi. It was examined by drawing(More)
Abiotic stresses are the foremost limiting factors for agricultural productivity. Crop plants need to cope up adverse external pressure created by environmental and edaphic conditions with their intrinsic biological mechanisms, failing which their growth, development, and productivity suffer. Microorganisms, the most natural inhabitants of diverse(More)
Group-wise diversity of sediment methylotrophs of Chilika lake (Lat. 19°28′–19°54′N; Long. 85°06′–85°35′E) Odisha, India at various identified sites was studied. Both the culturable and unculturable (metagenome) methylotrophs were investigated in the lake sediments employing both mxaF and 16S rRNA genes as markers. ARDRA profiling, 16S rRNA gene sequencing,(More)
