Influence of potassium-solubilizing bacteria on the growth and radiocesium phyto-transfer of Brassica rapa L. var. perviridis grown in contaminated Fukushima soils.

J Environ Radioact 2021 Oct 17;237:106682. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

Institute of Agriculture, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Saiwaicho 3-5-8, Fuchu, Tokyo, 183-12 8509, Japan; The Faculty of Food and Agricultural Science, Fukushima University, Kanayagawa, Fukushima City, Fukushima, 960-1296, Japan.

The supply of K, being the chemical analog of Cs, affects the phytotransfer of radiocesium such as Cs from contaminated soils and its accumulation in plant tissues. Since K and Cs have high affinity to the same clay particle surfaces, the presence of potassium-solubilizing bacteria (KSB) could increase the availability of not only K in the rhizosphere but also of radiocesium. In this study, we obtained five KSB isolates with the highest solubilization capacities from soybean rhizosphere on modified Aleksandrov medium containing sericite as K source. Read More

Mimosa caesalpiniifolia Benth. adapts to rhizobia populations with differential taxonomy and symbiotic effectiveness outside of its location of origin.

FEMS Microbiol Ecol 2019 08;95(8)

EMBRAPA, Centro Nacional de Pesquisa de Agrobiologia, Rodovia BR 465, km 7, s/n, Ecologia, Seropedica - RJ, 23891-000, Brazil.

Mimosa caesalpiniifolia Benth. is a legume native to the semi-arid region of Brazil, in the Northeast. Its successful adaptation to other locations, such as the Atlantic Forest in the Southeast region, may be related to its ability to establish symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing bacteria, especially β-rhizobia of the genus Paraburkholderia.

Brazilian species of Calliandra Benth. (tribe Ingeae) are nodulated by diverse strains of Paraburkholderia.

Syst Appl Microbiol 2018 May 5;41(3):241-250. Epub 2018 Jan 5.

Departamento de Ciências Agrárias e Ambientais, Universidade Estadual de Santa Cruz, Ilhéus, Bahia, Brazil. Electronic address:

The Chapada Diamantina in NE of Brazil is a biodiversity hotspot and a center of radiation for many Neotropical legume genera, such as Calliandra and Mimosa. The present study aimed to evaluate nodulation in Calliandra species endemic to various environments, and to characterize the diversity of their symbiotic rhizobia using housekeeping (16S rRNA, recA) and plasmid-borne, symbiosis-related (nifH and nodC) genes. The nodulation ability of selected isolates was assessed. Read More

Burkholderia species associated with legumes of Chiapas, Mexico, exhibit stress tolerance and growth in aromatic compounds.

Rev Argent Microbiol 2017 Oct - Dec;49(4):394-401. Epub 2017 Aug 31.

División Agroalimentaria, Universidad Tecnológica de la Selva, C.P. 29950 Ocosingo, Chiapas, Mexico. Electronic address:

Leguminous plants have received special interest for the diversity of β-proteobacteria in their nodules and are promising candidates for biotechnological applications. In this study, 15 bacterial strains were isolated from the nodules of the following legumes: Indigofera thibaudiana, Mimosa diplotricha, Mimosa albida, Mimosa pigra, and Mimosa pudica, collected in 9 areas of Chiapas, Mexico. The strains were grouped into four profiles of genomic fingerprints through BOX-PCR and identified based on their morphology, API 20NE biochemical tests, sequencing of the 16S rRNA, nifH and nodC genes as bacteria of the Burkholderia genus, genetically related to Burkholderia phenoliruptrix, Burkholderia phymatum, Burkholderia sabiae, and Burkholderia tuberum.

Genetic diversity of symbiotic Paraburkholderia species isolated from nodules of Mimosa pudica (L.) and Phaseolus vulgaris (L.) grown in soils of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest (Mata Atlântica).

FEMS Microbiol Ecol 2017 04;93(4)

Soil Biotechnology Laboratory, Embrapa Soja, C.P. 231, 86001-970, Londrina, PR, Brazil.

Some species of the genus Paraburkholderia that are able to nodulate and fix nitrogen in symbiosis with legumes are called β-rhizobia and represent a group of ecological and biotechnological importance. We used Mimosa pudica and Phaseolus vulgaris to trap 427 rhizobial isolates from rhizospheric soil of Mimoseae trees in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Eighty-four representative strains were selected according to the 16S rRNA haplotypes and taxonomically characterized using a concatenated 16S rRNA-recA phylogeny. Read More

Burkholderia sabiae sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2008 Sep;58(Pt 9):2174-9

Laboratory of Microbiology, Department of Seafood Science, National Kaohsiung Marine University, 142 Hai-Chuan Rd, Nan-Tzu, Kaohsiung City 811, Taiwan.

Two rhizobial strains, Br3407(T) and Br3405, were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia, a legume tree native to Brazil. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, both strains were shown previously to belong to the genus Burkholderia. A polyphasic approach, including DNA-DNA hybridizations, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of whole-genome DNA profiles, whole-cell protein analyses, fatty acid methyl ester analysis and extensive biochemical characterization, was used to clarify the taxonomic position of these strains further; the strains are here classified within a novel species, for which the name Burkholderia sabiae sp.
