Suppression of take-all of wheat by seed treatments with fluorescent pseudomonads.
Howell and three, or possibly more consecutive crops of wheat after alfalfa or Stipanovic (7,8) demonstrated that strains of Pseudomonas potatoes, to help eliminate soilborne pathogens of those crops. Expand
Take-all of wheat
Take-all decline has become the model system for research on biological control of plant pathogens in the rhizosphere and provided the first proof to the scientific world after decades of debate that antibiotics are both produced in soils and play a role in the ecology of soil microorganisms.

Conservation of the 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol biosynthesis locus among fluorescent Pseudomonas strains from diverse geographic locations.
In general, the occurrence of phenotypically and genotypically similar groups of PHL producers did not correlate with the geographic origin of the isolates, and highly similar strains could be isolated from diverse locations worldwide. Expand
Bacillus sp. L324-92 for Biological Control of Three Root Diseases of Wheat Grown with Reduced Tillage.
The results suggest that Bacillus species with desired traits for biological control of wheat root diseases are present within the community of wheat rhizosphere microorganisms and can be recovered by protocols developed earlier for isolation of fluorescent Pseudomonas species effective against take-all.

PRMT1 Is the Predominant Type I Protein Arginine Methyltransferase in Mammalian Cells*
It is concluded that PRMT1 contributes the major type I protein arginine methyltransferase enzyme activity present in mammalian cells and tissues. Expand
A seven-gene locus for synthesis of phenazine-1-carboxylic acid by Pseudomonas fluorescens 2-79.
It is postulate that different species of fluorescent pseudomonads have similar genetic systems that confer the ability to synthesize PCA, and two new genes were cloned and sequenced that are homologous to phzA and phzB, respectively. Expand
Inhibition of glycine N-methyltransferase activity by folate derivatives: implications for regulation of methyl group metabolism.
Evidence is presented that 5-methyltetrahydropteroylpentaglutamate (5-CH3-H4PteGlu5) is bound with high specificity, and is a powerful inhibitor of the enzyme Glycine N-methyltransferase. Expand

Each species of folate-binding proteins of rat liver cytosol was homogeneous, as judged by NaDodSO4/polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and they migrated identically. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of defense by rhizobacteria against root disease.
It is shown that antibiotic production plays a significant role in both plant defense by and ecological competence of rhizobacteria in a well-documented induced suppression that occurs in response to the wheat root disease and continued monoculture of wheat. Expand
