Phenotypic variability in Azospirillum brasilense strains Sp7 and Sp245: Association with dormancy and characteristics of the variants


The state of metabolic dormancy in diazotrophic bacteria Azospirillum brasilense Sp7 (non-endophytic strain) and Sp245 (endophytic strain) was found to be associated with phenotypic variability. The latter manifested itself in the extension of the spectrum of A. brasilense phenotypic variants resulting from plating of cyst-like resting cells (CRC) on solid… (More)
