The 4-hydroxycinnamate decarboxylase (4-HCD)-inducing activity of several substrate analogs toward Klebsiella oxytoca was investigated. Four E-cinnamate-class compounds, E-4-hydroxycinnamic acid (1), caffeic acid (2), ferulic acid (3) and E-2,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid (4), all of which were accepted as substrates, all of which were accepted as substrates of(More)
We previously demonstrated that xanthobaccin A from the rhizoplane bacterium Lysobacter sp. strain SB-K88 suppresses damping-off disease caused by Pythium sp. in sugar beet. In this study we focused on modes of Lysobacter sp. strain SB-K88 root colonization and antibiosis of the bacterium against Aphanomyces cochlioides, a pathogen of damping-off disease.(More)
The EtOAc soluble constituents of the unripe fruits of Ginkgo biloba showed motility inhibition followed by lysis of zoospores of the phytopathogenic Aphanomyces cochlioides. We purified 22:1-omega7-anacardic acid (1), 24:1-omega9-anacardic acid (2) and 22:0-anacardic acid (3), together with other related compounds, 21:1-omega7-cardol (4) and(More)
Five gram-negative bacteria, all of which were Enterobacteriaceae, were isolated from the phyllosphere of green or senescing leaves of Rosa rugosa, and their phenotypic and physiological characteristics were examined. Partial 16S rDNA sequences led to identification of these isolates as Pantoea agglomerans, Klebsiella terrigena, Erwinia rhapontici, and two(More)
For preliminary screening for and characterization of free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria from rhizoplane microflora, we used Winogradsky's mineral mixture-based nitrogen-free medium solidified with 0.3% gellan gum. The soft gel medium enabled some reference and wild free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria to grow in characteristic colonies, including their(More)
A total of 30 bacteria were isolated from the rhizoplane of rice cv. BR29 cultivated in Mymensingh, Bangladesh and from the seedlings obtained from surface-sterilized seeds of BR29. Upon screening, 6 isolates showed varying levels of phosphate solubilizing activity in both agar plate and broth assays using National Botanical Research Institute's phosphate(More)
We estimated the amount of test solution absorbed by each Chromosorb W AW particle (60-80 mesh) using an isotopic technique to quantitate the particle method. 14C-Labeled standard compounds like carbendazim (MBC), 5-O-methylcochliophilin A, sucrose and proline were dissolved in several solvents, and Chromosorb carrier particles were treated with the(More)
Cochliophilin A (5-hydroxy-6,7-methylenedioxyflavone, 1), known as a host-specific attractant towards the zoospores of Aphanomyces cochlioides, a cause of root rot and damping-off diseases of Chenopodiaceae, was found in the Amaranthaceae plant, Celosia cristata, that is susceptible to the pathogen. The content of 1 in Celosia seedlings was quantified as(More)
In a survey of plant secondary metabolites regulating the behavior of phytopathogenic Aphanomyces cochlioides zoospores, we found that leaf extracts of Amaranthus gangeticus and cotyledon extracts of pea (Pisum sativum) remarkably halted the motility of zoospores. Bioassay-directed fractionation of A. gangeticus and pea constituents revealed that the(More)
Quantification of the flavonoids in yellow lupin (Lupinus luteus; Leguminosae) seedlings revealed that a flavone glucoside, 7-O-beta-(2-O-beta-rhamnosyl)glucosyl-4',5,7-trihydroxyflavone (apigenine 7-O-beta-neohesperidoside), is rich in the epicotyl and cotyledon. In hypocotyls and roots, 8-C-beta-glucosyl-4',5,7-trihydroxyisoflavone (genistein(More)
