Diversity of endophytic bacteria from Eucalyptus species seeds and colonization of seedlings by Pantoea agglomerans.
This is the first report of an endophytic bacterial community residing in Eucalyptus seeds and the transmission of these bacteria from seeds to seedlings, ensuring the support of the bacterial community in the host plant.
Isolation of micropropagated strawberry endophytic bacteria and assessment of their potential for plant growth promotion
The plant growth promotion showed to be correlated to IAA production and phosphate solubilization and suggested that bacterial effects could potentially be harnessed to promote plant growth during seedling acclimatization in strawberry.
Interaction between endophytic bacteria from citrus plants and the phytopathogenic bacteria Xylella fastidiosa, causal agent of citrus‐variegated chlorosis
Aims:  To isolate endophytic bacteria and Xylella fastidiosa and also to evaluate whether the bacterial endophyte community contributes to citrus‐variegated chlorosis (CVC) status in sweet orange
Sugarcane Growth Promotion by the Endophytic Bacterium Pantoea agglomerans 33.1
The data demonstrate that P. agglomerans 33.1::pNKGFP is a superior colonizer of sugarcane due to its ability to colonize a number of different plant parts and suggested that this plant growth promoter could be used with other crops.
Diversity and biotechnological potential of culturable bacteria from Brazilian mangrove sediment
The diversity of culturable bacteria present over the seasons at two depths in a mangrove sediment and in a transect area from the land to the sea is assessed.
Species diversity of culturable endophytic fungi from Brazilian mangrove forests
A comparative analysis of the diversity of endophytic fungal communities isolated from the leaves and branches of Rhizophora mangle, Avicennia schaueriana and Laguncularia racemosa trees inhabiting two mangroves in the state of São Paulo revealed a large reservoir of fungal genetic diversity inhabiting these Brazilian mangrove forests.
The endophyte Curtobacterium flaccumfaciens reduces symptoms caused by Xylella fastidiosa in Catharanthus roseus.
PCR-primers for C. flaccumfaciens were designed in order to verify the presence of this endophytic bacterium in plant tissue, and to complement an existing assay for X. fastidiosa, and showed ability to reduce the severity of the disease symptoms induced by the bacterium.
3-Hydroxypropionic Acid as an Antibacterial Agent from Endophytic Fungi Diaporthe phaseolorum
3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HPA) has been isolated from the mangrove endophytic fungus Diaporthe phaseolorum and showed antimicrobial activities against both Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella typhi, the first report of antibacterial activity by 3- HPA against the growth of medically important pathogens.
Model plants for studying the interaction between Methylobacterium mesophilicum and Xylella fastidiosa.
The results showed that C. roseus and N. clevelandii could be used as model plants to study the interaction between M. mesophilicum and X. fastidiosa in model plants, and shifted in the indigenous endophytic bacterial communities were observed in plants inoculated with strain SR1.6/6.
