Photorhabdus is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria belonging to the Enterobacteriaceae family. In addition to forming a mutualistic relationship with the Heterorhabditidae family of nematodes, these bacteria are the causal agent of insect mortality during nematode infection, and are commonly used as biocontrol agents against pest insects in managed ecosystems. There are three described species of Photorhabdus; Photorhabdus luminescens and Photorhabdus temperata, which are strictly… CONTINUE READING
