Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) tolerance of Rhodococcus sp. strain APG1, previously isolated from the aquatic fern Azolla pinnata, was examined in relation to nitric oxide (NO) production by cells cultured on a variety of C sources. Cells inoculated onto A. pinnata fronds established a surface-sterilant resistant density of 2-4x10(7) cells g(-1) without causing disease. Compared to cultures containing glucose, fructose, mannitol, or glycerol, those provided only with sucrose displayed, on a per C… CONTINUE READING
