Spodoptera littoralis, one of the most serious and destructive agricultural pests in the world, is very susceptible to Vip3 toxin. In order to develop a new efficient bioinsecticide and to prevent the development of resistance by the target pest, insecticidal activity of biosurfactant produced by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens AG1 was evaluated against S. littoralis. Bioassays revealed the susceptibility of the first instar larvae of this pest to AG1 biosurfactant with an LC50 of 245 ng/cm(2). Moreover, the histopathology examination of the larval midgut treated by AG1 biosurfactant showed vacuolization, necrosis and disintegration of the basement membrane...

Bacterial endospore formers can produce spores that are resistant to many food processing conditions, including heat. Some spores may survive heating processes aimed at production of commercially sterile foods. Recently, it was shown that a spoVA operon, designated spoVA(2mob), present on a Tn1546 transposon in Bacillus subtilis, leads to profoundly increased wet heat resistance of B. subtilis spores. Such Tn1546 transposon elements including the spoVA(2mob) operon were also found in several strains of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Bacillus licheniformis, and these strains were shown to produce spores with significantly higher resistances to wet heat than their counterparts lacking this transposon...

Oxidative stress (OS) plays a major role in the gastrointestinal disorders. Although probiotics were reported to repress OS, few researches compared the antioxidant ability of different Bacillus strains and deciphered the mechanisms. To select a Bacillus strain with higher antioxidant capacity, we used H2O2 to induce intestinal porcine epithelial cell 1 (IPEC-1) OS model. The most suitable H2O2 concentration and incubation time were determined by the half lethal dose and methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium. Correlation analysis was performed to choose a sensitive indicator for OS...

Colonization of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) is critical for exerting their beneficial effects on the plant. Root exudation is a major factor influencing the colonization of both PGPR and soil-borne pathogens within the root system. However, the tripartite interaction of PGPR, plant roots and soil-borne pathogens is poorly understood. This research aimed to screen root exudates for signals, which mediate tripartite interactions in the rhizosphere. In a split-root system, we found that root colonization of PGPR strain Bacillus amyloliquefaciens SQR9 on cucumber root was significantly enhanced by pre-inoculation with SQR9 or the soil-borne pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f...
