    AM Fungi and Piriformospora indica Improve Plant Growth of Pinus elliottii Seedlings

    Taoze Sun, Wei Tan, Yujie Yang, Hongna Mu*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.90, No.1, pp. 171-178, 2021, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2020.013668

    Abstract Pinus elliottii is an exotic afforestation pine extensively distributed in southern parts of China. In order to understand whether endophytic fungi can affect seedling growth of P. elliottii, Piriformospora indica (Pi), Funnelifcrmis mosseae (Fm), and Diversispora tortuosa (Dt) were inoculated respectively, and the non-inoculated group was set as control. The growth indexes, the contents of soluble sugar and soluble protein, and plant endogenous hormone levels in the leaves of P. elliottii, were analyzed. The results showed that Fm, Dt and Pi colonized the P. elliottii roots to form mycorrhizal structure and chlamydospores arranged in beads respectively. Three fungal inoculants exhibited… More >

    Tengyue Zou, Bing Wu, Wen Wu, Long Ge, Yong Xu*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.89, No.2, pp. 275-289, 2020, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2020.09277

    Abstract Light is the major source of energy for plants and as such has a profound effect on plant growth and development. Red and blue lights have been considered to best drive photosynthetic metabolism and are beneficial for plant growth and development, and green light was seen as a signal to slow down or stop. In this study, Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis) was used to investigate the effects of red, blue and green lights on the growth and development of plants from seed germination to seeding. Results demonstrated that red light showed a promotion effect but blue light a prohibition one in… More >

    Inhibitory effect of jasmonic acid and ethylene on epicotyl growth and bud induction in the maritime pine, Pinus pinaster Soland. in Ait


    BIOCELL, Vol.33, No.3, pp. 141-148, 2009, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2009.33.141

    Abstract Two independent parameters, epicotyl height (cm) and number of induced buds were studied on Pinus pinaster explants to analyse the effects of three phytohormones (6-benzylaminopurine, jasmonic acid, ethylene) which were combined or not in 11 different treatments. Epicotyle length diminished significantly in relation to the control medium (medium without exogen phytohormones) in presence of jasmonic acid, 6-benzylaminopurine or Ethephon (which is converted to ethylene in plants) in any of treatments. Concentrations of 100 μM of jasmonic acid and Ethephon had a greater inhibitory effect than the treatments with 10 μM. In addition to that, jasmonic acid was a stronger inhibitor… More >

    Robles-Hernández L, J Hernández-Huerta, AC González-Franco, OA Hernández-Rodríguez, A Núñez-Barrios, R Pérez-Leal

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.84, No.2, pp. 253-261, 2015, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2015.84.253

    Abstract Chili pepper is one of the main crops of economic importance in Mexico, and Fusarium wilting is a disease that limits its production. In addition, the inappropriate use of agrochemicals in farming activities generate environmental and health problems. Therefore, in this study the effectiveness of Streptomyces sp PRIO41 was evaluated as a (1) biocontrol agent of Fusarium spp and (2) plant growth promoter bacteria. Assays of pathogenicity and virulence of Fusarium spp. in jalapeño pepper seeds, and interactions of these pathogens with Streptomyces PRIO41 were evaluated under two nutritional conditions. In the greenhouse, the effectiveness of Streptomyces sp. PRIO41 was… More >

    Biocontrol of pepper wilt with three Bacillus species and its effect on growth and yield

    Hernández-Castillo FD1, RH Lira-Saldivar2, G Gallegos-Morales1, M Hernández-Suárez1, S Solis-Gaona2

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.83, pp. 49-55, 2014, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2014.83.049

    Abstract One of the most severe phytosanitary problems that face chili pepper producers in Mexico, and in many other parts of the world, is the disease known as "secadera" or wilting, caused by diverse pathogens. These patogens are mainly controlled with synthetic pesticides, thus causing a severe ecological impact, toxicity to humans, generation of plant resistance to fungicides, and increments of production costs. Because of this, it rises the need of finding more environmentally friendly options. We evaluated rhizospheric bacteria as a possible biological control of pepper wilt. We used three bacterial strains belonging to the Bacillus genera. These strains were… More >

    Anatomophysiological modifications induced by solid agricultural waste (vermicompost) in lettuce seedlings (Lactuca sativa L.)

    Argüello JA, L Seisdedos, MC Díaz Goldfarb, EA Fabio, SB Núñez, A Ledesma

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.82, pp. 289-295, 2013, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2013.82.289

    Abstract The objective of this work was to analyze the impact of a vermicompost treatment on anatomical and physiological modifications related to assimilate partitioning and growth in lettuce seedlings. The results showed that vermicompost increased growth, which was most likely due to an increased activity of the ground meristem of the leaf blade. A greater height and number of chlorenchyma layers were observed in the leaf blade. This was related to an increase in the photosynthetic activity, expressed by an increase in the net assimilation rate. Vermicompost also showed an effect at the procambium level, producing an increase in the number… More >

    Apparent cross-talk of two signaling pathways that regulate Zea mays coleoptile growth

    Buentello Volante1 B, F Díaz de León-Sánchez1, F Rivera-Cabrera1, R Aguilar Caballero2, M Ponce-Valadez1, E Sánchez de Jiménez2, LJ Pérez-F lores1

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.79, pp. 101-108, 2010, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2010.79.101

    Abstract Auxin and insulin promote Zea mays embryo growth, induce S6 ribosomal protein (S6rp) phosphorylation, and promote specific protein synthesis. The objective of this research was to test a possible cross-talk between insulin and auxin transduction pathways in Z. mays coleoptiles, typical auxin target tissues. Auxin and insulin produced differential quantitative and qualitative stimulation of cytoplasmic and ribosomal protein phosphorylation, and specific patterns of de novo synthesized cytoplasmic proteins. In addition, insulin induced S6rp phosphorylation was strongly inhibited by rapamycin, indicating target of rapamycin (TOR) kinase participation; auxin-induced S6rp phosphorylation was insensitive to this inhibitor. Phosphatidic acid (PA), a second messenger… More >

    PGPR inoculation improves growth, nutrient uptake and physiological parameters of Capsicum chinense plants

    Castillo-Aguilar C de la C1, JJ Zúñiga-Aguilar2, AA Guzmán-Antonio2, R Garruña3

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.86, pp. 199-204, 2017, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2017.86.199

    Abstract The Habanero pepper (Capsicum chinense) is intensively cultivated in the Yucatan peninsula, México. Because of adverse environmental conditions, it required seeding in germination trays, from which six-week-old seedlings were transplanted to the soil. Adequate nursing and fertilization programmes were made to improve health and vigour before seedlings transplanting. During seed germination, we investigated the effects of inoculation with four plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) on growth, nutrient uptake and gas exchange of 8-week-old Capsicum chinense plants. Inoculation was made with Pseudomonas sp. -P61-, Pseudomonas sp. -A46-, Bacillus pumillus -R44-, and Paenibacillus polymyxa-BSP1.1-. The BSP1.1 strain produced the highest increase in plant… More >

    Effects of Rhizoglomus intraradices, Azospirillum brasilense and plant growth regulators application on root architecture in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

    Zepeda-Guzmán S1, M Gómez-Romero2, C Sosa-Aguirre1, J Villegas1

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.87, pp. 183-190, 2018, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2018.87.183

    Abstract Changes in root architecture are a strategy used by plants to explore the soil for available resources. The presence of beneficial microorganisms in the rhizosphere as well as plant growth regulators can cause changes in root development and promote the availability of water and nutrients. The effect of microorganisms or growth regulators on plant growth has been tested, but little is known about the effect they have on the architecture of the root of Hordeum vulgare L. Therefore the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the application of Rhizoglomus intraradices, Azospirillum brasilense, quercetin and epibrassinolide, alone… More >

    Seed inoculation with Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas syringae enhanced maize growth in a compacted saline-sodic soil

    Zafar-ul-Hye M1, A Nasir1, M Aon1, S Hussain1, M Ahmad2, I Naz1

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.87, pp. 25-31, 2018, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2018.87.025

    Abstract Abiotic stresses like salt stress and soil compaction are responsible for increased ethylene production which may adversely affect crop growth. A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of seed inoculation with ACC-deaminase containing rhizobacteria (Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas syringae) in the presence of recommended or half of a recommended rate of inorganic fertilizers at different growth stages of fodder maize in a compacted saline-sodic soil. At both fertilizer rates, seed inoculation with P. fluorescens and P. syringae significantly improved all growth parameters over the control treatment. After 30, 60 and 75 days of sowing, treatment with recommended NPK… More >
