Bacterial Associations with Legumes
This review presents an overview of the associations of bacteria with legumes, the current available knowledge on the phylogenetic diversity of both Rhizobia and endophytic bacteria inhabiting root nodules, and the symbiotic features used to define symbiovars in rhizobia.
Historical evolution and current status of the taxonomy of genus Pseudomonas.
Bradyrhizobium pachyrhizi sp. nov. and Bradyrhizobium jicamae sp. nov., isolated from effective nodules of Pachyrhizus erosus.
Genotypic and phenotypic differences among the novel strains isolated from Pachyrhizus and B. elkanii were found regarding the assimilation of carbon sources and antibiotic resistance, and these differences were congruent with DNA-DNA hybridization analysis.
Rhizobium cellulase CelC2 is essential for primary symbiotic infection of legume host roots
P purification, biochemical characterization, molecular genetic analysis, biological activity, and symbiotic function of a cell-bound bacterial cellulase (CelC2) enzyme from Rhizobium leguminosarum bv.
Diversity of Potassium-Solubilizing Microorganisms and Their Interactions with Plants
This chapter reviews the microorganisms reported as K solubilizers and their phylogenetic diversity, including filamentous fungi such as Penicillium or Aspergillus, yeasts such as Torulaspora and bacteria of many different genera from phyla Proteobacteria, Firmicutes, Actinobacteria and Bacteroidetes.
Reclassification of Pseudomonas aurantiaca as a synonym of Pseudomonas chlororaphis and proposal of three subspecies, P. chlororaphis subsp. chlororaphis subsp. nov., P. chlororaphis subsp.
Analysis of the almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the type strain of P. aurantiaca, NCIMB 10068(T), shows gene sequence similarities close to 99.5 % with respect to P. chlororaphis DSM 50083(T) and P. aureofaciens DSM 6698(T).
Life in an Arsenic-Containing Gold Mine: Genome and Physiology of the Autotrophic Arsenite-Oxidizing Bacterium Rhizobium sp. NT-26
The first reference set of genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data of an Alphaproteobacterium isolated from an arsenic-containing goldmine is presented and a coordinate regulation of these two mechanisms was observed, illustrating the impact environmental pressure can have on the evolution of bacterial genomes.
Phylogenetic diversity based on rrs, atpD, recA genes and 16S–23S intergenic sequence analyses of rhizobial strains isolated from Vicia faba and Pisum sativum in Peru
The results support the fact that the 16S rRNA gene is not adequate for identification at species level within genus Rhizobium and suggest the existence of putative new species within the phylogenetic group of R. leguminosarum.
