Pseudomonas putida is plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) that have the capacity to improve growth in plants. The purpose of this study was to determine growth and anthocyanin pigmentation of the bracts in two poinsettia Euphorbia pulcherrima cultivars (Prestige and Sonora Marble) using three strains of P. putida, as well as a mixture of the three (MIX). Comparison with the control group indicated for the most part that Prestige grew better than the Sonora Marble cultivars with the PGPR strains. Prestige with the MIX strain grew better compared to control for the number of cyathia (83 versus 70...

BACKGROUND: Measuring genome size by flow cytometry assumes direct proportionality between nuclear DNA staining and DNA amount. By 1997 it was recognized that secondary metabolites may affect DNA staining, thereby causing inaccuracy. Here experiments are reported with poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) with green leaves and red bracts rich in phenolics. METHODS: DNA content was estimated as fluorescence of propidium iodide (PI)-stained nuclei of poinsettia and/or pea (Pisum sativum) using flow cytometry...

The morphological and physiological features of coryneform isolated from fasciated mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) display many morphological similarities with the plant pathogenic corynebacteria, but differ from Corynebacterium fascians in exhibiting motility albeit in only a small proportion of each cell population, and by its ability to hydrolyze asculin, its failure to produce urease and differences in pigmentation. The isolate appears to be related to Corynebacterium fascians in its ability to cause fasciation but physiologically and biochemically it resembles Cornyebacterium poinsettiae and C...
