Comparison of in vitro solubilization activity of diverse phosphate-solubilizing bacteria native to acid soil and their ability to promote Phaseolus vulgaris growth
To identify plant growth promotion ability of phosphorus-solubilizing native bacteria, we have examined a collection of isolates representing the diversity of culturable phosphate-solubilizingExpand

The Discovery of Stromatolites Developing at 3570 m above Sea Level in a High-Altitude Volcanic Lake Socompa, Argentinean Andes
We describe stromatolites forming at an altitude of 3570 m at the shore of a volcanic lake Socompa, Argentinean Andes. The water at the site of stromatolites formation is alkaline, hypersaline, richExpand

nifH pyrosequencing reveals the potential for location-specific soil chemistry to influence N2 -fixing community dynamics.
A dataset of 87 020 nifH reads and 16 782 unique nifH protein sequences obtained over 2 years from four locations across a gradient of agricultural soil types in Argentina were analysed to provide aExpand

In vitro plant regeneration of Ilex paraguariensis (aquifoliaceae)
SummaryNodal segments as well as shoot tips and apical meristems of 2-yr-old “maté” plants (Ilex paraguariensis St. Hil.) were cultured in vitro to establish micropropagation systems. Maximum shootExpand

Endophytic bacteria from Ilex paraguariensis shoot cultures: localization, characterization, and response to isothiazolone biocides
Nodal segment explants of Ilex paraguariensis, collected from greenhouse-grown plants, were found to contain endophytic bacteria. After culturing in bioreactors, 16 rRNA gene analyses and analyticalExpand

A guaB mutant strain of Rhizobium tropici CIAT899 pleiotropically defective in thermal tolerance and symbiosis.
Rhizobium tropici strain CIAT899 displays a high intrinsic thermal tolerance, and had been used in this work to study the molecular basis of bacterial responses to high temperature. We generated aExpand

In Vitro Culture of Rudimentary Embryos of Ilex paraguariensis: Responses to Exogenous Cytokinins
Abstract. The effects of benzyladenine (BAP), kinetin (KIN), zeatin (ZEA), isopentenyladenine (2iP), and thidiazuron (TDZ) were studied on in vitro growth of rudimentary embryos of IlexExpand

Analysis of nifH‐RNA reveals phylotypes related to Geobacter and Cyanobacteria as important functional components of the N2‐fixing community depending on depth and agricultural use of soil
In this survey, a total of 80 787 reads and 28 171 unique NifH protein sequences were retrieved from soil RNA. This dataset extends our knowledge about the structure and diversity of the functionalExpand

Identification and control of bacterial contaminants from Ilex dumosa nodal segments culture in a temporal immersion bioreactor system using 16S rDNA analysis
Endogenous bacterial contaminants isolated from infected cultures of Ilex dumosa nodal segments were identified as Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Achromobacter sp. using 16S rDNA analysis. A rangeExpand

Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation of Lotus tenuis and regeneration of transgenic lines
A protocol for the production of transgenic plants was developed for Lotus tenuis via Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of leaf segments. The explants were co-cultivated (for 3 days) with an A.Expand
