spirochaeta odontotermitis sp. nov., an obligately anaerobic, cellulolytic, halotolerant, alkaliphilic spirochaete isolated from the termite odontotermes obesus (rambur) gut.a gram-stain-negative spirochaete (strain jc202t) was isolated from the gut of the termite odontotermes obesus (rambur) from rann of kutch, gujarat, india. this strain was obligately anaerobic, mesophilic, halotolerant and required alkaline conditions for growth. strain jc202t was resistant to rifampicin and kanamycin, but sensitive to gentamicin, tetracycline, ampicillin and chloramphenicol. strain jc202t possessed phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, glycolipid and six unidentified li ...201526377069
sugiyamaella mastotermitis sp. nov. and papiliotrema odontotermitis f.a., sp. nov. from the gut of the termites mastotermes darwiniensis and odontotermes obesus.two novel yeast species were isolated from the guts of two different termite species. a new member of the genus sugiyamaella was isolated from the hindgut and nest material of the lower australian termite mastotermes darwiniensis. the second novel yeast species, isolated from the higher termite odontotermes obesus, was identified as a member of the genus papiliotrema. both yeast species were able to hydrolyse xylan, methylumbelliferyl β-xylobiose and methylumbelliferyl β-xylotriose. the ability ...201627514386
laboratory and field evaluation of metarhizium anisopliae var. anisopliae for controlling subterranean termites.the efficacy of the metarhizium anisopliae strain arsef 6911 was determined in the laboratory and field against two sugarcane pests, microtermes obesi holmgren and odontotermes obesus rambur (termitidae: isoptera). the susceptibility of both termite species to different conidial suspensions (1 × 10(10), 1 × 10(8), 1 × 10(6) and 1 × 10(4) conidia/ml) was determined in laboratory. all conidial suspensions were able to induce mortality. termite mortality caused by the fungal suspensions was dose de ...201121584407
pseudomonas fluorescens cha0 can kill subterranean termite odontotermes obesus by inhibiting cytochrome c oxidase of the termite respiratory chain.pseudomonas fluorescens cha0 has been shown to suppress the growth of a wide range of microbial plant pathogens as well as invertebrate pests such as root nematodes. hydrogen cyanide, a secondary metabolite produced by the bacterium, has been credited as being one of the determinants of its biocontrol ability. the use of biocontrol agents against social insect pests such as termite odontotermes obesus has limitations because of behavioural adaptations that include (1) removal of the pathogen whe ...200919769587
hydrogen cyanide-producing rhizobacteria kill subterranean termite odontotermes obesus (rambur) by cyanide poisoning under in vitro conditions.the subterranean termite odontotermes obesus is an important pest of the indian subcontinent, causing extensive damage to major agricultural crops and forest plantation trees. control of termites by strategies employing their parasites has limitations because they have evolved a complex social structure, immune responses, and adaptive behavior toward pathogen-infected individuals. nonparasitic rhizobacteria that produce harmful metabolites might facilitate the biocontrol of termites. in the pres ...200717171461
