Maize leaf epiphytic bacteria diversity patterns are genetically correlated with resistance to fungal pathogen infection
(American Phytopathological Society, 2010-04)
Plant leaves host a specific set of microbial epiphytes. Plant genetic and solar UV-B radiation effects on the diversity of the phyllosphere were examined by measuring epiphytic bacterial ribosomal DNA diversity in a maize ...
Influence of Climate on Soil and Wine Bacterial Diversity on a Vineyard in a Non-traditional Wine Region in Argentina
(Frontiers Media, 2021-08-12)
Argentina is the fifth world-wide wine producer, with an area of emerging importance in the Southwest of Buenos Aires Province, where climatic conditions are rather challenging. We studied the variations in soil and wine ...
Soil bacterial communities remain altered after 30 years of agriculture abandonment in Pampa grasslands
Old fields are spreading in the world because of agriculture abandonment, and they show a persistence of exotic plant species with little recovery towards the original vegetation composition. Soil biota may also differ ...
How the bacterial community of a tannery effluent responds to bioaugmentation with the consortium SFC 500-1. Impact of environmental variables
(Elsevier Inc, 2019-10-01)
Bioaugmentation with the consortium SFC 500-1 is a promising alternative to remediate wastewaters, such as tannery effluents. With the aim of assessing the changes produced in response to bioaugmentation, bacterial 16S ...
Environmental heterogeneity determines the ecological processes that govern bacterial metacommunity assembly in a floodplain river system
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020-12-27)
How diversity is structured has been a central goal of microbial ecology. In freshwater ecosystems, selection has been found to be the main driver shaping bacterial communities. However, its relative importance compared ...
The Rhizobia-Lotus symbioses: Deeply specific and widely diverse
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2018-09)
The symbiosis between Lotus and rhizobia has been long considered very specific and only two bacterial species were recognized as the microsymbionts of Lotus: Mesorhizobium loti was considered the typical rhizobia for the ...
Bacterial diversity and functional interactions between bacterial strains from a phenanthrene-degrading consortium obtained from a chronically contaminated-soil
A phenanthrene-degrading consortium (CON-Phe) was obtained from a chronically contaminated soil. The consortium degraded 58% of the phenanthrene supplied during the first 7 days of incubation with the concomitant accumulation ...
Soil bacterial and fungal community structure of a rice monoculture and rice-pasture rotation systems
(Elsevier Science, 2020-07)
Rice monoculture has been the main rice-cropping system for several years. Rice-pasture rotation system has raised in recent years as an alternative, as this practice not only increases rice yield but also adds value through ...
The disruptive effect of lysozyme on the bacterial cell wall explored by an in-silico structural outlook
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2018-01)
The bacterial cell wall, a structural unit of peptidoglycan polymer comprised of glycan strands consisting of a repeating disaccharide motif [N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) and N-acetylmuramylpentapeptide (NAM pentapeptide)], ...
