Isolation of culturable phosphobacteria with both phytate-mineralization and phosphate-solubilization activity from the rhizosphere of plants grown in a volcanic soil
Chilean volcanic soils contain large amounts of total and organic phosphorus, but P availability is low. Phosphobacteria [phytate-mineralizing bacteria (PMB) and phosphate-solubilizing bacteriaExpand

Current and future biotechnological applications of bacterial phytases and phytase-producing bacteria.
Phytases are a group of enzymes capable of releasing phosphate from phytate, one of the most abundant forms of organic phosphate in the natural environment. Phytases can be found in many organisms;Expand

Indole acetic acid and phytase activity produced by rhizosphere bacilli as affected by pH and metals
The abilities to produce indole acetic acid (IAA) and mineralize organic phospho- rus by phytase are desirable traits in plant−growth promotion rhizobacteria (PGPR) particularly in Chilean AndisolsExpand

Chlorpyrifos biodegradation and 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol production by actinobacteria isolated from soil
Abstract Chlorpyrifos (CP) is a widely used agricultural insecticide that is hazardous to both the environment and human health. Therefore, it is an essential to develop approaches to remove thisExpand

Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria Associated with Ancient Clones of Creosote Bush (Larrea tridentata)
Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are common components of the rhizosphere, but their role in adaptation of plants to extreme environments is not yet understood. Here, we examinedExpand

Current overview on the study of bacteria in the rhizosphere by modern molecular techniques: a mini‒review
Abstract The rhizosphere (soil zone influenced by roots) is a complex environment that harbors diverse bacterial populations, which have an important role in biogeochemical cycling of organic matterExpand

Activity stabilization of Aspergillus niger and Escherichia coli phytases immobilized on allophanic synthetic compounds and montmorillonite nanoclays.
The aim of this work was to study the stabilization of the activity of two commercial microbial phytases (Aspergillus niger and Escherichia coli) after immobilization on nanoclays and to establishExpand

Formulation of bacterial consortia from avocado (Persea americana Mill.) and their effect on growth, biomass and superoxide dismutase activity of wheat seedlings under salt stress
Abstract Inoculation of plants with bacteria that produce indole acetic acid (IAA) and 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deaminase (ACCD) often has a positive effect on alleviation of salt stress inExpand
