Paenibacillus spp. are rhizobacteria that can promote plant growth through a range of mechanisms. A New Zealand isolate of Paenibacillus, P16, has reduced the incidence of black rot, caused by Xanthamonas campestris pv. campestris (Xcc), in brassicas. To investigate if this response was provided through plant growth promotion, isolate P16 was co-applied with Xcc as a seed treatment. In the presence of Xcc, P16-treated seedlings had significantly greater root length, leaf area, and root and…

Recent advances in the biocontrol of Xanthomonas spp.
This review is a report concerning the recent advances in the search for microorganisms for the biocontrol of several Xanthomonas that are important for the world economy.
Paenibacillus arachidis sp. nov., isolated from groundnut seeds.
A Gram-stain-positive, endospore-forming, rod-shaped, facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated as strain E3T, was isolated from groundnut seeds and represents a novel species of the genus Paenibacillus sp.


Alterations in plant growth and in root hormone levels of lodgepole pines inoculated with rhizobacteria.
Whether reductions in the extent of growth promotion of lodgepole pine mediated by Paenibacillus polymyxa occur in the presence of a forest soil isolate (Pseudomonas fluorescens M20) and whether changes in plant growth promotion mediated by P. poly myxa are related to changes in P.polymyxa density in the rhizosphere or result from alterations in root hormone levels is investigated.
Role of Antibiosis in Suppression of Charcoal Rot Disease by Soybean Endophyte Paenibacillus sp. HKA-15
Four defective (AFM−) mutants of Paenibacillus sp. HKA-15 that no longer produced the peptide antifungal metabolites were developed through ethyl methane sulfonate (EMS) mutagenesis and used for in
Infectivity and acetylene reduction of diazotrophic rhizosphere bacteria in wheat (Triticum aestivum) seedlings under gnotobiotic conditions
Wheat seedlings were inoculated with rhizosphere nitrogen-fixing bacteria and grown gnotobiotically for 15 days, except that inoculation with B. polymyxa resulted in shorter shoots and lower root weight.
Auxin production and detection of the gene coding for the Auxin Efflux Carrier (AEC) protein in Paenibacillus polymyxa
This is the first study to demonstrate that the AEC protein is present in P. polymyxa genome.
Discovery of a Paenibacillus isolate for biocontrol of black rot in brassicas
This research addresses the use of Paenibacillus applied as a seed treatment for biological control of black rot on cabbage and suggests that the P16 isolate enabled plants to survive and grow normally by reducing Xcc infection.
Mechanisms Used by Plant Growth-Promoting Bacteria
This review presents an overview of the fundamental mechanisms that PGPB utilize to facilitate plant growth, emphasizing recent developments in this field.
Cytokinin production by Paenibacillus polymyxa
To evaluate whether the free-living soil bacterium, Paenibacillus polymyxa, releases the hormone group cytokinin and, if so, their identity, the content of cytokinins in the growth media, before and after cultivation of this bacterium was determined by immunoanity chromatography (IAC).
Paenibacillus polymyxa Invades Plant Roots and Forms Biofilms
Colonia of plant roots by a natural isolate of P. polymyxa which had been tagged with a plasmid-borne gfp gene was studied, indicating that the bacteria colonized predominantly the root tip, where they formed biofilms.
