Agave tequilana is the raw material for the production of the alcoholic beverage tequila. A bacterial disease has affected the A. tequilana crop in recent years. Previous reports based on colony and cell morphology, Gram stain and potato rot indicated that Erwinia sp. is the main pathogen. We isolated a several bacterial isolates capable of producing soft-rot symptoms in greenhouse pathogenicity assays. An extensive characterisation involving pathogenicity tests, fatty acid profile, metabolic… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Infection by a coronatine-producing strain of Pectobacterium cacticidum isolated from sunflower plants in Mexico is characterized by soft rot and chlorosis
TLDR
The results suggest that this strain may utilize a dual infection process involving cell maceration and plant toxins, which is synchronized via an unknown mechanism, might confer an adaptive advantage to colonize different plant hosts. Expand
Cultivable endophytic bacteria from leaf bases of Agave tequilana and their role as plant growth promoters
TLDR
Bacterial endophytes show promise for use as bio-inoculants for agave cultivation and were confirmed to be plant growth promoting bacteria by their capacities for nitrogen fixation, auxin production, phosphate solubilization, or antagonism against Fusarium oxysporum AC132. Expand
Activities of plant cell wall-degrading enzymes by bacterial soft rot of orchid
TLDR
The results showed two distinct groups which clustered as producing and non-producing PCDE, which belonged to the genera Pectobacterium, Klebsiella, Serratia, Enterobacter, Citrobacter, Providencia and Pseudomonas. Expand
Caracterización morfológica y molecular de Fusarium spp. asociados a la ocurrencia regional de marchitez y pudrición seca del cogollo en Agave tequilana
TLDR
It is postulated that wilt and dry bud rot of blue agave constitute a syndrome in which several Fusarium species are associated and parasitically specialized. Expand
First report of a cross-kingdom pathogenic bacterium, Achromobacter xylosoxidans isolated from stipe-rot Coprinus comatus.
TLDR
It is reported that fungi can also serve as a host for A. xylosoxidans, an important opportunistic human pathogenic bacterium that can cross-kingdom infect between animals (mice) and fungi (C. comatus) and not only is pathogenic to C.Comatus but also may threaten human health. Expand
Somatic Embryogenesis in Agave spp.
TLDR
The importance of culture medium, plant growth regulators, genotype, and special conditions for culture incubation will be discussed and the uni- and multicellular origin of the somatic embryos is a key characteristic that should be taken into account for special purposes and uses. Expand
Phylogenetic study of Japanese Dickeya spp. and development of new rapid identification methods using PCR–RFLP
TLDR
It is shown that the PCR–RFLP analysis of rpoD, gyrB and recA can be used as a rapid technique to identify Japanese Dickeya strains. Expand
Characterization of a microbial consortium with potential for biological degradation of cactus pear biomass for biofuel production
TLDR
Pectobacterium cacticida was the most effective eubacterial species identified for degrading cladodes among all isolates evaluated and holds great promise for increasing the release of fermentable sugars and improving overall ethanol yields. Expand
Host range and molecular phylogenies of the soft rot enterobacterial genera pectobacterium and dickeya.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of sequences concatenated from regions of seven housekeeping genes from representatives of these genera demonstrated that Dickeya spp. Expand
Isolation, characterisation and expression of Ty1-copia retrotransposons in Agave tequilana
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship of these sequences revealed that Ty1-copia retrotransposons are heterogeneous in nature and they might have been actively replicating in recent past, and it was found that a large proportion of agave genome is occupied by these elements. Expand

Taxonomy and pathogenicity of Erwinia cacticida sp. nov.
TLDR
A numerical cluster analysis showed that 98 of the 112 strains formed a uniform group (cluster 1A) that was distinguished from other pectolytic erwinias by an API 20E code of 1205131, which indicates that the members of cluster 1A are members of a new species, which the authors name Erwinia cacticida.

Phenotypic and genotypic diversity of fluorescent pseudomonads isolated from field-grown sugar beet.
TLDR
A sample of 30 fluorescent pseudomonads isolated from the phyllosphere of sugar beet throughout a single growing season and shown to be closely related on the basis of fatty acid methyl ester analysis was subjected to detailed phenotypic and genotypic characterization, suggesting a population comprised of a variety of apparently distantly related clones (genomic groups), each adapted to local conditions.

Isolation and characterization of strains of Erwinia ananas from honeydew melons
TLDR
Erwinia ananas honeydew melons were isolated from shipments from South and Central (ATCC 11530 and 23822), a pathogen of pineapple fruits, was identical to America and from California, and had fast, motile, facultative anaerobic rods. Expand
Molecular Genetics of Pathogenesis by Soft-Rot Erwinias
TLDR
The soft-rot erwinias are enterobacteria able to cause diseases, a symptom of which is the maceration of host tissues, on a wide range of plants and are split into two main species, Erwinia chrysanthemi and E. carotovora. Expand
Bacterial Blight and Dieback of Eucalyptus Species, Hybrids, and Clones in South Africa.
TLDR
DNA:DNA hybridization conclusively showed that the bacterium causing blight and dieback of Eucalyptus in South Africa belongs to P. ananatis, the first report in which this species has been found as a causal agent of a disease on Eucallyptus. Expand
Biochemical characteristics of Enterobacter agglomerans and related strains found in buckwheat seeds.
Thirty strains of bacteria were randomly isolated and identified from buckwheat seeds. The phenotypic characteristics of these strains agree well with those of the Enterobacter agglomerans-ErwiniaExpand
Rapid Identification and Differentiation of the Soft Rot Erwinias by 16S-23S Intergenic Transcribed Spacer-PCR and Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Analyses
TLDR
Analysis by ITS-PCR and ITS-restriction fragment length polymorphism was found to be a simple, precise, and rapid method compared to current molecular and phenotypic techniques. Expand
Bacterial succession in necrotic tissue of agria cactus (Stenocereus gummosus)
TLDR
The results indicate that the bacteria initially colonizing the newly injured cactus tissue were more likely to contain pectinolytic, proteolytic, and lipolytic enzymes than were the bacteria entering the injuries once tissue maceration had already begun, supporting contention that bacteria colonize injured tissue primarily by passive transport, e.g., on wind-blown particles.

Subjective Synonymy of Erwinia herbicola, Erwinia milletiae, and Enterobacter agglomerans and Redefinition of the Taxon by Genotypic and Phenotypic Data
TLDR
DNA-DNA hybridization values showed that 24 strains were highly related to Enterobacter agglomerans ATCC 27155T and formed a genotypic group provisionally called DNA hybridization group 27155, which contains the type strains of Erwinia herbicola,Erwinia milletiae, and Enterob bacteriaceae, and the existence of seven protein electrophoretic groups each showing a characteristic protein pattern.
