Phylogenetic grouping and identification of Rhizobium isolates on the basis of random amplified polymorphic DNA profiles.
Through the use of a single, random 15mer as a primer, between 1 and 12 DNA amplification products were obtained per strain from a selection of 84 Rhizobium and Bradyrhizobium isolates. AExpand
The selective toxicity of antimicrobial nitroheterocyclic drugs.
Summary: Three antimicrobial nitroimidazole drugs (metronidazole, dimetridazole, and tinidazole) inhibit a range of Clostridia and the protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis; they have an identical site andExpand
Characterisation of Rhizobium isolates by amplification of DNA polymorphisms using random primers.
The use of single random primers, selected in the absence of target sequence information, has been shown to be effective in producing DNA amplifications that provide fingerprints which are unique toExpand
A note on some factors affecting the survival of Rhizobium cultures during freeze drying and subsequent storage
Viable counts of Rhizobium before and immediately after freeze drying in sucrose-peptone medium (SPM) showed that neither culture age nor cell concentration affected survival. SPM gave greaterExpand
Effect of high soil temperatures on nodulation of cowpea, Vigna unguiculata
SUMMARY Cowpeas, inoculated with one of five effective strains of Rhizobium isolated from African soils, were grown at root temperatures of 30 oC continuously or at 36, 38, 40, 42 and 44 oC for 5Expand
Measurements of the antibiotic activity in the foliage of peach seedlings, kept with their roots in mineral nutrient solutions containing streptomycin, showed that streptomycin passed into theExpand
Basidiocarp development and spore release by Stereum purpureum in the field
Abstract A Hirst spore trap was operated for 1 year in the centre of a dying apple tree bearing numerous basidiocarps (sporophores) of Stereum purpureum. Sporophores were produced mainly in autumnExpand

PREVIOUS work1 has shown that streptomycin sulphate, when applied as an aqueous spray to foliage, prevented the development of blast of stone fruit, caused by Pseudomonas syringae van Hall. MitchellExpand
The enrichment of Rhizobium from a model system using immunomagnetic separation
Abstract Using immunomagnetic separation up to 200-fold enrichment of Rhizobium strains from mixtures has been achieved. This is the first report succesfully using indirect separation, in whichExpand
Investigations on the auxins in tomato crown-gall tissue
Galls were induced to form on the stems of tomato plants by inoculation with Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Free ether-soluble auxins in the galls and in normal tomato stem tissue were extracted and theExpand
