Nostoc, a nitrogen-fixing cyanobacterium, has great potential to make symbiotic associations with a wide range of plants and benefit its hosts with nitrogen in the form of nitrates. It may also use phytohormones as a tool to promote plant growth. Phytohormones [cytokinin (Ck) and IAA] were determined in the culture of an endophytic Nostoc isolated from rice roots. The strain was able to accumulate as well as release phytohormones to the culture media. Optimum growth conditions for the… Expand
Effect of IAA on in vitro growth and colonization of Nostoc in plant roots
TLDR
It is suggested that ipdC and/or synthesized IAA of Nostoc OS-1 is required for its efficient root colonization and plant promoting activity. Expand
Light influences cytokinin biosynthesis and sensing in Nostoc (cyanobacteria)
TLDR
The data show that the genetic disposition allows Nostoc not only to produce free cytokinins and prenylate tRNA but also modulate the cytokinin biosynthesis in response to light, triggering complex changes in sensing and regulation. Expand
Secondary Metabolites from Cyanobacteria: A Potential Source for Plant Growth Promotion and Disease Management
TLDR
The role of cyanobacteria in triggering growth and development in plants and prospects of their utilization in agriculture are reviewed. Expand
Potential applicability of a cyanobacterium as a biofertilizer and biopesticide in rice fields
TLDR
The present study suggests that A. variabilis SCAU30 may act as a fertilizer and pesticide in developing green rice in South China. Expand
Effect of heterocystous nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria against rice sheath blight and the underlying mechanism
TLDR
The objective of the present study was to screen and evaluate the biocontrol effect of nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria against the disease through microchamber and microarea experiments and found three strains with a significant inhibition on rice sheath blight were selected. Expand
A review on possible elicitor molecules of cyanobacteria: their role in improving plant growth and providing tolerance against biotic or abiotic stress

TLDR
The role of cyanobacteria in triggering the growth and development of plants and hence its utilization in agriculture is reviewed. Expand
Regulation of insecticide toxicity by kinetin in two paddy field cyanobacteria: Physiological and biochemical assessment.
TLDR
Results establish that cypermethrin induces toxicity on photosynthesis, photosynthetic pigments and growth, and this effect was more pronounced in Anabaena PCC 7120 than Nostoc muscorum ATCC 27893. Expand
Plant-cyanobacteria interactions: Beneficial and harmful effects of cyanobacterial bioactive compounds on soil-plant systems and subsequent risk to animal and human health.
TLDR
This review describes the existing evidence for the positive benefit of plant-cyanobacteria interactions and discusses the use of cyanobacterial biomass as biofertilizers and its growing worldwide interest. Expand

TLDR
Cyanobacteria are Gram-negative oxygenic photosynthetic autotrophic organisms that have minimal nutritional requirements to grow and are used as biofertilizers, known to have a protective effect under biotic stress. Expand
Heterocyte-forming cyanobacteria from Brazilian saline-alkaline lakes.
TLDR
The application of both morphologic and phylogenetic studies has proven to be an important tool in resolving problematic groups in cyanobacteria systematics and is essential in order to detect novel cyanob bacteria genera from other tropical environments. Expand

Phytostimulation and biofertilization in wheat by cyanobacteria
TLDR
It was concluded that cyanobacterial phytohormones are a major tool for improved growth and yield in wheat. Expand
Colonization of roots of rice (Oryza sativa) by symbiotic Nostoc strains.
TLDR
Under laboratory conditions, artificial associations were created between one-third of the screened symbiotic cyanobacteria and rice, and the agricultural potential for the association appears high since the cyanob bacteria adsorb tightly and fix more N2 than when free-living. Expand
Evaluating the potential of plant growth promoting cyanobacteria as inoculants for wheat
TLDR
Evaluated cyanobacterial isolates from the rhizosphere of wheat gave statistically equivalent results as compared to application of with full dose of chemical fertilizers in terms of grain yields, and significant enhancement in microbial biomass carbon in the treatments was observed at mid-crop and harvest stage.

Moss biology and phytohormones--cytokinins in Physcomitrella.
TLDR
This review focuses on the metabolism and biosynthesis of cytokinins, mostly summarising data obtained using the moss Physcomitrella patens (Hedw.) B.S.G. which has served as a model system for cytokinin research for many years. Expand
Association of non-heterocystous cyanobacteria with crop plants
TLDR
It is concluded that non-heterocystous cyanobacteria also have the potential for use in agriculture to improve the growth and yield of crop plants that do not naturally form associations with cyanob bacteria. Expand

The Roles of Auxins and Cytokinins in Mycorrhizal Symbioses
TLDR
The role of auxin in EC symbiosis and recent research advances on the topic are reviewed, and it is considered that gradients and ratios of these molecules are more likely to be the causal agents of morphologic changes resulting from fungal associations. Expand
Co-cultivation of N2-fixing cyanobacteria and some agriculturally important plants in liquid and sand cultures
TLDR
The effect of the N2-fixing cyanobacteria on the plants tested during the co-cultivation seems to be very specific and the kind of relations depends on both the strain and the plant species. Expand
CREATION OF NEW NITROGEN-FIXING CYANOBACTERIAL ASSOCIATIONS
TLDR
Although transfer and integration of nif genes into crop plants is the long-term objective, a promising alternative is to create artificial N2-fixing symbioses or associations, which are more likely candidate than rhizobia to form productive associations with cereals. Expand
Cyanobacteria respond to cytokinin
TLDR
The results obtained show that cyanobacteria, evolutionary ancestors of chloroplasts, own the system of cytokinin signal recognition, which might be transferred to the plant cell. Expand
