The identity of a patented endophytic bacterium was established by 16S rRNA sequence analysis as a strain of Bacillus mojavensis, a recently erected species within one of the B. subtilis subgroups. This strain of B. mojavensis is antagonistic to the fungus Fusarium moniliforme, an endophytic mycotoxin-producing pathogen of maize and other plants. There are five other species within this subgroup: Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, B. atrophaeus, B. licheniformis, Brevibacterium halotolerans… CONTINUE READING
