The chitinase producing ability of Pseudomonas fluorescens strains viz., PF1, PB2 and FP7 was evaluated in a culture medium with and without a chitin source. The addition of 1% (v/v) chitin in culture medium significantly increased the bacterial population and chitinase activity. Among three strains tested, FP7 responded well to the addition of chitin by producing 31.2% increased chitinase in culture. Western blot analysis with chitinase antibody detected six and five chitinase isoforms in…

INFLUENCE OF CHITIN ON POPULATION DYNAMICS AND CHITINASE ACTIVITY OF ANTAGONISTIC BACTERIA

TLDR
Chitin amendment significantly increased the chitinase activity of both the antagonistic bacterial strains and was found to be superior in supporting the survival of P. fluorescens.

Production and Some Properties of Chitinase from Pseudomonas putida Isolated from Fish Waste Dumping Soil

TLDR
Of 60 soil samples collected from various locations of fish scale waste dumping locations, 28 of them were positive for Pseudomonas species, and 15 strains have been confirmed as P. putida, by 16S rRNA PCR.

Antagonistic effect of Pseudomonas fluorescens against Fusrium oxysporum f.sp. Ciceri causing wilt in chickpea

TLDR
Pf-3 showed highest per cent inhibition of growth of the pathogen on culture medium and the substance like salicylic acid, siderophore and IAA production by Pf-3 exhibited its efficacy to work as biocontrol agent as well as PGPR.

SHORT COMMUNICATION Isolation and Characterization of Chitinolytic Bacteria and Their Potential to Inhibit Plant Pathogenic Fungi

TLDR
The result suggested that their swarming activity seemed to contributed to inhibition of fungal growth.

Expression of Serratia and Pseudomonas Chitinase Genes in Rhizobium Via Horizontal Gene Transfer

TLDR
Some Rhizobium transconjugants showed higher antagonistic activity against Rhizoctonia solani in relation to the mid-parent, because they were able to produce higher amounts of antifungal metabolites and may inhibit the growth of various soil-born pathogens with a higher efficiency than their parents.

CABAI ( Capsicum annuum L . ) CHARACTERIZATION PHYSIOLOGICAL OF RHIZOBACTERIA ISOLATED , AND ITS CAPABILITY TEST TO INHIBIT THE GROWTH OF COLONI OF PEPPER SEEDBORN PHATOGENS ( Capsicum annuum L . )

TLDR
This study sought to evaluate the ability of the rhizobacteria isolate in secreting an extracellular enzyme and to produce the compound of siderofor and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) to inhibit the growth of colony of fungal pathogen Phytophthora capsici.

Antagonistic Activity and Biofilm Studies on Streptomyces Species towards Nigrospora Sp

TLDR
The increase or stability in the values proves of the possible cooperative role of both the species in the antagonistic activity against the Nigrospora species.

Metabolites of Pseudomonads : A New Avenue of Plant Health Management

Biotic threat in the form of insect pests is a major cause for yield loss in agricultural systems and an important factor affecting the structure and productivity of crop plant communities. However,

Plant Growth Promoting Pseudomonas spp. from Diverse Agro-Ecosystems of India for Sorghum bicolor L.

TLDR
P17 strain was identified as a potential PGPR for nutrient uptake and plant growth in sorghum, which has potential for integrated plant nutrient management in rainfed agroecosystems where farmers tend to rely on cost effective technologies for enhanced profitability.

Physiology of microbial degradation of chitin and chitosan

Chitin is produced in enormous quantities in the biosphere, chiefly as the major structural component of most fungi and invertebrates. Its degradation is chiefly by bacteria and fungi, by

PLANT AND BACTERIAL CHITINASES DIFFER IN ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY

TLDR
The hypothesis that plant chitinases function to protect the host against fungal infections is strengthened, as antifungal activity and enzyme specificity are correlated with the different mechanisms of action of the two classes of enzymes.

Chitinase system of Bacillus circulans WL-12 and importance of chitinase A1 in chitin degradation

TLDR
It was concluded that chitinase A1 is the key enzyme in the chit inase system of this bacterium.

Plant chitinases and their roles in resistance to fungal diseases.

TLDR
The expression of chitinase in combination with one or several different antifungal proteins should have a greater effect on reducing disease development, given the complexities of fungal-plant cell interactions and resistance responses in plants.

Mechanisms of biocontrol of soil-borne plant pathogens by Rhizobacteria

TLDR
It appears that genetic engineering of the lytic enzymes, such as chitinase which play an important role in plant disease control, may improve the efficacy of biocontrol agents.

Development of a powder formulation of Pseudomonas fluorescens for control of rice blast.

TLDR
Pseudomonas fluorescens strain Pf1, inhibitory to the growth of the rice blast pathogen Pyricularia oryzae in vitro, was developed as a talc-based powder formulation that effectively controlled the disease and increased grain yield.
