Characterization of lead-resistant and ACC deaminase-producing endophytic bacteria and their potential in promoting lead accumulation of rape.


Forty-nine lead (Pb)-resistant endophytic bacteria were isolated from metal-tolerant Commelina communis plants grown on lead and zinc mine tailing, of which, seven 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) deaminase-producing endophytic bacteria were initially obtained and characterized with respect to heavy metal resistance and production of ACC deaminase… (More)
