bacterial traits involved in colonization of arabidopsis thaliana roots by bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42.colonization studies previously performed with a green-fluorescent-protein, gfp, labeled derivative of bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42 revealed that the bacterium behaved different in colonizing surfaces of plant roots of different species (fan et al., 2012). in order to extend these studies and to elucidate which genes are crucial for root colonization, we applied targeted mutant strains to arabidopsis seedlings. the fates of root colonization in mutant strains impaired in synthesis of alterna ...201325288929
two-component response regulator degu controls the expression of bacilysin in plant-growth-promoting bacterium bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42.the plant-growth-promoting-rhizobacteria bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42 possess an enormous potential to synthesize a wide range of antimicrobial, antiviral and nematocidal compounds. one of them, the dipeptide antibiotic bacilysin, is synthesized by fzb42 during exponential growth. here, we have demonstrated that bacilysin is positively regulated by the two-component response regulator degu at the transcriptional level. in addition, scoc (hpr), a transition state regulator, negatively control ...201222677979
gram-positive rhizobacterium bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42 colonizes three types of plants in different patterns.the colonization of three types of different plants, zea mays, arabidopsis thaliana, and lemna minor, by gfp-labeled gram-positive rhizobacterium bacillus amyloliquefaciens fzb42 was studied in gnotobiotic systems using confocal laser scanning microscopy and electron microscopy. it was demonstrated that fzb42 was able to colonize all the plants. on one hand, similar to some gram-negative rhizobacteria like pseudomonas, fzb42 favored the areas such as the concavities in root surfaces and the junc ...201222367935
