These microbes produce secondary metabolites that suppress plant disease and signal gene expression to neighboring cells inhabiting the rhizosphere. AlgU in P. aeruginosa also plays part in regulation of biosynthesis of EPS alginate. The sole vegetable waste generated no pigmentation. P. alcaligenes, P. mendocina, P. pseudoalcaligenes, and P. stutzeri are also characterized by a single flagellum. Biosurfactants show advantages over chemical analogs owing to their low toxicity and biodegradable nature. Login to your personal dashboard for more detailed statistics on your publications. Glycerol by-product generated during the production of biodiesel from kitchen chimney dump lard was a better carbon source for PHA synthesis by P. aeruginosa JQ866912 as compared with commercial glycerol, sugarcane molasses and glucose. As mentioned above, pseudomonads are able to degrade a broad spectrum of compounds. Antibiotic resistance can be provided by changes in targets. Some species like strains of phytopathogenic P. syringae grow very slowly in comparison with strains of the saprophytic species, but their growth can be enhanced by addition of small amounts of complex organic materials (yeast extract, peptones). Currently the genus became the attractive object of intensive research. Strains are analyzed by two siderotyping methods: siderophore isoelectrofocusing and siderophore-mediated iron uptake. Many strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens are known to enhance plant growth promotion and reduce severity of various diseases. We are IntechOpen, the world's leading publisher of Open Access books. Besides porins, P. aeruginosa has numerous and highly efficient efflux mechanisms to resist to antibiotics. The other Pseudomonas infection cases are rare. Some P. aeruginosa strains, like PA14, also cause disease in a variety of nonvertebrate hosts, including plants, Caenorhabditis elegans, and the greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella . β-lactams, aminoglycosides, tetracyclines, and some fluoroquinolones can pass through porin channels [64, 65]. OprF is a major porin of P. aeruginosa that forms a majority of small channels and a minority of larger channels . Also 40 of those 66 genes are associated with virulence factor expression, encoding proteins of a type III secretion system (TTSS), the type III cytotoxins ExoT and ExoY, and two ancillary chaperones [141, 142]. Biofilm bacteria are usually embedded in an extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) matrix composed of polysaccharides, proteins, and nucleic acid [89-92]. Advanced nucleic acid-based methods allow to differentiate it from other similar genera and reveal taxonomic relationships among various bacterial species including Pseudomonas. RpoS gene also is involved in tolerance to antibiotics in P. aeruginosa during the stationary phase and heat stress . Technical oleic acid and waste frying oil were shown to be suitable substrates for PHAs production by P. aeruginosa strain NCIB 40045 . Plant-beneficial pseudomonads that colonize roots of agricultural crops provide important services to the agroecosystem as they promote plant growth and health by suppressing soilborne diseases, by stimulating plant immune defences, and by improving nutrient availability in soil. The cell membrane is the primary target for these compounds. 2. The optimum pH and temperature values for color removal are 7–9 and about 37°C, respectively. Pseudomonas Bacteria Treatment. Sequence similarities between the species ranged from 93.3% (between P. cichorii and P. cirtonellolis) to 99.9% (between P. oloevorans and P. pseudoalcaligenes). Our team is growing all the time, so we’re always on the lookout for smart people who want to help us reshape the world of scientific publishing. The ipd072Aa gene from P. … Usually mutations in parC are found jointly with highly resistant gyrA mutants [86-88]. Melanins find applications in agriculture, medicine, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. How does it benefit my plants? It was stated that P. spp. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) can be used for differentiation and identification of single strains [49, 50]. Solvents penetrate into and disrupt the lipid bilayer of membrane. Apart from their uses based on their special properties, rhamnolipids yields produced by Pseudomonas … Therefore, it was shown that resistance to β-lactam antibiotics does not seem to involve loss or modification of OprF . The similar effect was revealed in biofilms of PHA-negative mutants as compared to non-mutated strains . Efflux pumps include five superfamilies, based on energy source, the phylogenic relationship and the substrate specificity. These mechanisms help bacteria to overcome the toxic effects of organic solvents . With regard to prospective use in agriculture, plant growth-promoting properties of the strain were tested and plant growth-promotion was demonstrated under in vitro conditions. Burkholderia (previously known as Pseudomonas) cepacia, a nutritionally versatile, gram-negative organism, was first described in 1949 by Walter Burkholder of Cornell University, as the phytopathogen … P. aeruginosa LBI strain was grown on media containing one of residues from soybean, corn, babassu, cottonseed, and palm oil refinery. By Nora Hilda Rosas-Murrieta, Guadalupe Rojas-Sánchez, Sandra R. Reyes-Carmona, Rebeca D. Martínez-Contreras, Nancy Martínez- Montiel, Lourdes Millán-Pérez-Peña and Irma P. Herrera-Camacho, By Regina Maria Barretto Cicarelli, Lis Velosa Arnosti, Caroline Cunha Trevelin and Marco Túlio Alves da Silva. Pigments may be soluble in water and diffusible into the medium or may be associated with the cells. The predominant Pseudomonas species isolated from clinical sources are P. aeruginosa . Another possible tool for Pseudomonas taxonomy is fluorescence spectroscopy. Antibiotics used to treat P. aeruginosa infections have to cross the cell wall to reach their targets. Presented by Sandeep Kumar CH UG14AGR1989 College of Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur 3. The resistance of P. aeruginosa to these antibiotics is connected, first of all, with low permeability of the outer cell membrane and the efficient removal of antibiotics by efflux pumps. Primary role of some phosphotransferases such as APH(3′)-IIb may be participation in metabolism, and resistance to aminoglycosides may be provided fortuitously. Moreover, pseudomonads can remove heavy metals released into the environment with industrial and domestic wastewaters. It is unable to grow under anaerobic conditions when placed in the anaerobic GasPak jar. It also makes possible to use various media, including wastes, for cultivation of Pseudomonas. Pseudomonads can produce diffusible pigments that fluoresce in short wavelength (254 nm) ultraviolet light. Six groups were defined within the first cluster: P. syringae, P. chlororaphis, P. fluorescens, P. stutzeri, P. aeruginosa, and P. putida groups. Similar experiments showed that waste motor lubricant oil and peanut oil cake , waste frying rice bran oil , distillery and whey wastes , waste frying coconut oil , olive oil mill wastewater  and molasses  can be used as cheap carbon sources for production of biosurfactants by Pseudomonas. Open Access is an initiative that aims to make scientific research freely available to all. Individuals most at risk from Pseudomonas infection are the immunocompromised, patients with cystic fibrosis, and patients suffering major trauma or burns. We also try to exploit the potential of beneficial pseudomonads as soil additives for improving plant health. calcoaceticus complex, genera Achromobacter, Stenotrophomonas, Actinomyces, and some species such as Bacillus anthracis, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus globisporus, Bacillus psychrophilus, Burkholderia cocovenenans, Burkholderia gladioli, Burkholderia pseudomallei, Burkholderia thailandensis, Neisseria cinerea, Neisseria meningitides, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas jessenii, Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus oralis, Streptococcus pneumonia, etc. Plant-beneficial pseudomonads that colonize roots of agricultural crops provide important services to the agroecosystem as they promote plant growth and health by suppressing soilborne diseases, by … Biofilm-forming ability provides resistance to adverse conditions, like antibiotic tolerance in P. aeruginosa. Use of Psedomonas fluorescens as biocontrol agent The same plate under UV light. . © 2015 The Author(s). Strains of different species were subjected to many phenotypic tests, the most important of which was the nutritional screening . Meanwhile, the organism has been developed as a biopesticide for protecting crops against fungal diseases and has potential as a bioremediation agent for breaking down recalcitrant herbicides and … How? The aim is to define strategies allowing to enhance the abundance and activity of natural populations of such beneficial bacteria, e.g. Colonization of rice and wheat roots respectively by the biocontrol strains Pseudomonas fluorescens F113 (a) and fluorescent Pseudomonas sp. Pseudomonas is also an excellent source of various enzymes acting as catalysts in specific biochemical reactions. Biosurfactant from palm oil waste shows a good emulsification index against kerosene suggesting its potential use for bioremediation . The majority of species possess more than one flagella . P. putida contains 9 out of the 11 identified central pathways, which is in agreement with the wide range of niches that this species can colonize. Strains belonging to a well-defined genomic group produce an identical pyoverdine, and each genomic group is characterized by a specific pyoverdine. Use of Pseudomonas fluoroscens as biocontrol agent 1. Ability to degrade and produce a whole spectrum of compounds makes these species perspective in industrial applications. However, lack of AmpC increases susceptibility to imipenem and doripenem but not to meropenem. Other pigments produced by species of Pseudomonas include pyocyanin (P. aeruginosa, blue color), pyorubin (P. aeruginosa, red color), chlororaphin (P. chlororaphis, green color), pyomelanin (P. aeruginosa, brown/black color). Common, Persian, Chinese, and Japanese lilac leaves develop round to irregularly shaped brown spots with yellow halos. Pel is a glucose-rich, cellulose-like polymer that plays a role in cell-to-cell interactions . Pseudomonas decrease negative influence of plant pathogens by various ways. The data available indicates the 2-3% of pesticide is actually used and rest persists in soil and water causing environmental pollution leading toxicity to the biodata. CHA0 (b, c). Evidence of the high level of conservatism among ribosomal RNA molecules [24, 25] allowed to divide this genus into five rRNA groups using rRNA–DNA hybridization . Pseudomanas fluorescens is common non-pathogenic saprophyte that colonises in soil, water and on plant surfaces. There are five superfamilies: SMR (Small Multidrug Resistance), MET (Multidrug Endosomal Transporter), MAR (Multi Antimicrobial Resistance), RND (Resistance Nodulation Division), and MFS (Major Facilitator Superfamily) . Pseudomonas fluorescens under white light. Exogenous betaine was found to increase the growth rate and to partially replace NAGGN in osmotically stressed wild-type P. aeruginosa cells . are … Pseudomonas spp. Another possible application of Pseudomonas is bioremediation. PHA-negative mutants were more sensitive to heat treatment than non-mutated cells. The utilization of these compounds is a growing problem, arousing expanding interest in the use of waste in microbial transformation . Pseudomonas is known to display a range of pathogenic and toxicological characteristics in regard to humans, animals, and plants. Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) is related to the polymorphic nature of the locations of restriction enzyme sites within defined genetic regions. Pseudomonas is equipped with several mechanisms allowing to resist and survive under adverse conditions. High efficiency and specificity facilitate introduction of enzymes in diverse industrial processes. As a result Pseudomonas infections are hard to get rid of. It was shown that different Pseudomonas species efficiently decolorize and degrade dyes. Several mechanisms in biofilm increase resistance to antimicrobial agents. Abstract. HeadquartersIntechOpen Limited5 Princes Gate Court,London, SW7 2QJ,UNITED KINGDOM. Since Gram-negative bacteria have an additional outer membrane, and Gram-positive bacteria have a single cytoplasmic membrane, it was assumed that Gram-negative bacteria are better equipped to resist to organic solvents. PHAs isolated from P. oleovorans are more diverse than PHAs from Ralstonia eutropha H16 growing under the same conditions . Several Pseudomonas species have a history of safe use in agriculture and certain species represent a source of genes with insecticidal properties. Pseudomonas fluorescens are commensal species with plants, allowing plants to attain key nutrients, degrading pollutants, and suppressing pathogens via antibiotic productions. Pseudomonas is able to remove various toxic pollutants from natural environment. In this chapter, we focused on one of the most broadly used bacterial genus, Pseudomonas, which is present in the rhizosphere as well as within the tissue of the plants and used … The Psl polysaccharide is rich in mannose and galactose and is connected with initial attachment and mature biofilm formation. Some species, like Aeromonas veronii, could contain up to six copies of the 16S rRNA gene that differ by up to 1.5% among themselves which might cause identification problems . An Insight Into Beneficial Pseudomonas bacteria, Microbiology in Agriculture and Human Health, Mohammad Manjur Shah, IntechOpen, DOI: 10.5772/60502. Antibiotic resistance in the bacterial community constantly increases, and more multiple drug resistant strains appear. It appears attractive to use waste as media for Pseudomonas cultivation, biodegradation or production of necessary compounds, hence further experiments were carried out. P. putida NBAII-RPF9 can survive under saline shock (1 M NaCl for 1 h) or heat shock (45°C for 20 min). Biofilms are characterized by the heterogeneity: cells close to the substratum exhibit low metabolic activity and cells on top exhibit high metabolic activity. OprH binds to LPS sites which are occupied by divalent cations and prevents access of polymyxin, gentamicin, and EDTA to these sites . The bacteria can produce some … Ability to degrade and synthesize various substances is a vital technological merit of Pseudomonas. Keratinolytic bacteria were better enzyme producers than the chitinolytic ones, and oil removal in the presence of chicken-feathers was 3.8 times higher than with shrimp wastes, and almost twice, in comparison with oil-only added cultures . In the 1960s studies on nucleic acid similarity have been started. Overproduction of AmpC can occur either by induction of the ampC gene or through a process of derepression. This chapter intends to consider Pseudomonas versatility as regards the beneficial uses of Pseudomonas for production of primary metabolites including enzymes. Mutations in genes gyrA and parC (topoisomerases II and IV, respectively) increase resistance to fluoroquinolones. Since that time description of genus Pseudomonas has widened; development of new methods allowed to study in detail the morphology and physiology of these bacteria. Licensee IntechOpen. The most significant work providing phenotypic description of this genus was performed by Stanier et al. These are binding and sequestration of antimicrobial agents by EPS components, stationary phase or slow growth of cells because of nutrient and oxygen limitation within the depths of a biofilm [94, 95]. Reasons that allow wide use of 16S rRNA for taxonomic studies include: presence in almost all bacteria, often existing as a multigene family, or operons; the function of the 16S rRNA gene over time has not changed, suggesting that random sequence changes are a more accurate measure of time (evolution); the 16S rRNA gene (1500 bp) is large enough for informatics purposes . Pili are essential for the normal development of P. aeruginosa biofilms, and they also function as receptors for bacteriophage binding [5-7]. The recent technological advances in the area of genomics and proteomics are now beginning to lay out important avenue of research focused on the role of Pseudomonas bacteria and the molecular mechanisms of their beneficial action. MLSA is a molecular typing method that consists of sequencing 400-600 bp long fragments of some housekeeping genes, i.e., genes that are present in most bacteria. Cat genes encode enzymes involved in catechol ortho-cleavage. Alginate produced by P. aeruginosa can retard the diffusion of some antimicrobials (piperacillin, amikacin, gentamicin), whereas others penetrate readily (ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, sparfloxacin, ofloxacin) [96, 97]. Glucose concentration above 10 g/L inhibited nicotine degradation. P. aeruginosa has an inducible AmpC cephalosporinase which is similar to AmpC of several members of the Enterobacteriaceae. Alkaline proteases have considerable application in leather tanning industry . In addition to the polar flagella, some species (P. stutzeri, P. mendocina) have shorter lateral flagella. Positive reactions were observed if studied bacteria at least belonged to genus Pseudomonas. Diversity of Pseudomonas determines vast research interest in this genus. The species name … Only a few of the many species cause disease. Elevated resistance provides for ubiquitous distribution of Pseudomonas in soil and water, as well as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), animal and plant pathogens. Additionally, Pseudomonas provides activation of induced systemic resistance (ISR) or systemic acquired resistance (SAR) in plants. *This Pseudomonas promote plant growth by suppressing pathogenic micro … CatA, catB, and catC encode catechol 1,2-dioxygenase, cis,cis–muconate cycloisomerase, and muconolactone isomerase, respectively. Some Pseudomonas species also form pili (P. aeruginosa, P. alcaligenes, P. syringae). The expression of different classes of proteins under abiotic stress can help this organism to adapt and survive under harsh environmental conditions . Pseudomonas can be used in bioremediation allowing to degrade toxic compounds and solve problems concerning utilization of wastes hazardous for environment and humans. The 10 RND pumps of P. aeruginosa without the metal cation transporters are MexAB-OprM, MexCD-OprJ, MexEF-OprN, MexXY, MexJK, MexGHI-OpmD, MexVW, MexPQ-OpmE, MexMN, and TriABC, however, not all of these systems are well studied. Some of these problems are related to bacterial nomenclature and taxonomy; others are related to sequence identity and very high similarity scores. At present the genus includes about 216 species with 18 subspecies and the number of species constantly increases . This chapter will consider the use of Pseudomonas for production of secondary metabolites from various pathways which are equally useful in the industries and in medicine. *Pseudomonas live as saprophytes and parasites on plant surfaces and inside plant tissues. Among the various tested TWBP concentrations, 2g TWBP dose provoked significant stimulation of bacterial growth . AlgU is essential for adaptation of plant-associated P. fluorescens to osmotic and desiccation stresses . These bacteria are efficient colonizers of below-ground parts of plants, they are vector-independent, and some have both disease-suppressive and anti-insect pest activities. In the research of Anzai et al. The sigma factor encoded by the rpoS gene is known to be important for survival under stressful conditions in several bacterial species. The alternative sigma factors RpoS (σs) and RpoE (σ22; also referred to as AlgU or AlgT in fluorescent pseudomonads) are involved in bacterial survival under stress conditions. EPS binds heavy metals and retards their diffusion within biofilm, protecting cells from stress . Built by scientists, for scientists. Aminoglycoside acetyltransferases (AAC) acetylate compounds such as gentamicin, tobramycin, netilmicin, and amikacin at the 1, 3, 6′, and 2′ amino groups. These divisions are designated the "P. aeruginosa intrageneric cluster" and the "P. fluorescens intrageneric cluster" including four (P. aeruginosa, P. resinovorans, P. mendocina, P. flavescens) and five (P. fluorescens, P. syringae, P. cichorii, P. putida, P. agarici) lineages, respectively. Summing up, Pseudomonas species and their products find applications in various fields primarily because they are capable to utilize a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds. Pseudomonas promising application is bioremediation of oil-contaminated environment. By Galina Novik, Victoria Savich and Elena Kiseleva, Submitted: November 3rd 2014Reviewed: March 10th 2015Published: July 16th 2015, Home > Books > Microbiology in Agriculture and Human Health. Our readership spans scientists, professors, researchers, librarians, and students, as well as business professionals. This … Pseudomonas is a genus of gram negative bacteria that comprises several species. P. agarici and P. asplenii belong to first cluster, but they were not included into any group. They also may be applied in cleaning of oil-contaminated tankers, oil spill removal, transportation and recovery of crude oil, and bioremediation of contaminated sites. Most species can’t tolerate acid conditions (pH 4.5 or lower) . by the choice of crop variety/cultivar or by the type of soil management. Field trials 2014 - Sowing and Inoculation, Soil health and fertility is the basis for reliable and high quality production of agricultural crops and depends on the presence and function of beneficial soil microorganisms. PHAs are composed of medium-chain length (R)-3-hydroxyfatty acids characterized by thermoplastic properties, biodegradability and biocompatibility. They are also characterized by an enormous biosynthesis capacity resulting in the production of a wide range of secondary metabolites and biopolymers. Pseudomonas Fluorescens Biocontrol Agents bacteria have a strong oxiding power that helps them break down environmental pollutants and provide useful enzymes and oxygen for plant growth. Extended-spectrum β-lactamases from the class D, metallo-β-lactamases from the class B with four major families (IMP, VIM, SPM, and GIM families), OXA-type enzymes, class A carbapenemases of the KPC family also have been found within P. aeruginosa. Growth and nicotine degradation were observed at substrate concentrations of 2–5.8 g/L. The pca genes are gathered in a single cluster in P. fluorescens, but they are organized in different clusters in other Pseudomonas strains . Pseudomonas are aerobic bacteria, but in some cases they can use nitrate as alternate electron acceptor and carry out denitrification (P. aeruginosa, P. stutzeri, and some P. fluorescens biovars), reducing nitrate to N2O or N2. Although not … Galina Novik, Victoria Savich and Elena Kiseleva (July 16th 2015). *Address all correspondence to: email@example.com, Microbiology in Agriculture and Human Health. It was identified 13 upregulated proteins and one downregulated protein under heat shock, 6 upregulated proteins under heat tolerance, 11 upregulated proteins under saline shock, and 6 upregulated proteins under saline tolerance. The bacteria can produce some compounds that inhibit spread of plant pathogens. Pseudomonas is one of the most studied species of bacteria. The infections pseudomonads cause to humans are generally opportunistic.

Marine melanin producer Pseudomonas sp. They were first identified at the end of 19th century by Migula as Gram-negative, rod-shaped and polar-flagellated bacteria. Cultivation. The composition of the matrix depends on the environmental conditions, the age of the biofilm, and the particular P. aeruginosa strain forming the biofilm. Pili of phytopathogenic P. syringae serve as a conduit for the long-distance translocation of effector proteins in plant cells . Enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus PCR (ERIC-PCR) is also an effective method for identification of Pseudomonas genotypes. Melanins represent a group of macromolecules, synthesized in living organisms by oxidative polymerization of various phenolic substances in the process of adaption . are degraded via the intermediate protocatechuate. Pyoverdine also can be a tool for identification of Pseudomonas because each genomic group is characterized by a specific pyoverdine . They stimulate growth by several mechanisms. Other antimicrobial agents such as colistin, EDTA, and SDS interfere with bacterial membrane structures and kill the cells of the deeper layer [99, 100]. Important feature of Pseudomonas is antibiotic resistance. P. fluorescens suppress plant … Pseudomonas spp. Since the 1980s, certain types of Pseudomonas bacteria, such as Pseudomonas fluorescens, have been applied directly to soils and seeds in order to prevent the growth of crop pathogens. They make PHAs suitable for use in the packaging, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture and food industries . Protocatechuate is cleaved by 3,4-dioxygenase to carboxy-cis,cis-muconate that is converted to β-ketoadipate enol-lactone by PcaC and PcaD enzymes. Protease production increased with increasing concentration of shrimp waste powder and reached a maximum value at 60 g/L . GyrB and rpoD nucleotide sequences can be also used to design specific PCR primers due to the high evolution rates [38, 39]. The β-ketoadipate pathway is the most widespread Pseudomonas pathway of the degradation of aromatic compounds. Based on the various polyphasic taxonomic traits analysed, the strain SI-P-133 T was novel and placed within the genus Pseudomonas. The number of flagella has taxonomic importance.
