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

Isolation and screening of potassium solubilizing bacteria from saxicolous habitat and their impact on tomato growth in different soil types.

Arch Microbiol 2021 Aug 5;203(6):3147-3161. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Root and Soil Biology Laboratory, Department of Botany, Bharathiar University, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, 641046, India.

Bacteria that solubilize nutrients in the soil are commonly used as bio-inoculants for promoting the growth of different crop species. However, the influence of potassium (K) solubilizing bacteria (KSB) originating from saxicolous habitat (rock-dwelling) on plant growth has not been frequently examined. In this study, we isolated KSB from saxicolous habitats and estimated their ability to produce plant growth hormone, organic acids, and siderophore that may facilitate plant growth. Read More

Influences of potassium solubilizing bacteria and K-feldspar on enzyme activities and metabolic activities of the bacterial communities in kiwifruit planting soil.

J Gen Appl Microbiol 2021 Jul 31;67(3):106-113. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Shaanxi Province Institute of Microbiology.

A pot experiment was conducted with kiwifruit planting soil to evaluate the impacts of potassium solubilizing bacteria (KSB) and K-feldspar on the soil nutrient levels, enzyme activities, and microecological environment. The effects were investigated of three inoculation treatments (T1: K-feldspar, T2: KSB, and T3: KSB with K-feldspar) and a non-inoculation treatment (CK) on the enzyme activities and the metabolic activities of the bacterial communities in kiwifruit rhizosphere soil. The results showed that the total nitrogen, available phosphorus, available potassium, and organic matter contents in T3 were 18. Read More

Integrating Loco-Regional Hyperthermia Into the Current Oncology Practice: SWOT and TOWS Analyses.

Front Oncol 2020 12;10:819. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Centre for Radiation Oncology KSA-KSB, Kantonsspital Aarau, Aarau, Switzerland.

Moderate hyperthermia at temperatures between 40 and 44°C is a multifaceted therapeutic modality. It is a potent radiosensitizer, interacts favorably with a host of chemotherapeutic agents, and, in combination with radiotherapy, enforces immunomodulation akin to " tumor vaccination." By sensitizing hypoxic tumor cells and inhibiting repair of radiotherapy-induced DNA damage, the properties of hyperthermia delivered together with photons might provide a tumor-selective therapeutic advantage analogous to high linear energy transfer (LET) neutrons, but with less normal tissue toxicity.

Differences in Distribution of Potassium-Solubilizing Bacteria in Forest and Plantation Soils in Myanmar.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 02 27;16(5). Epub 2019 Feb 27.

School of Chemistry and Biological Engineering, University of Science and Technology Beijing, Beijing 100083, China.

Potassium (K) has been recognized as an essential element in intensive agricultural production systems, and deficiency of K usually results in a decrease in crop yields. The utilization of potassium-solubilizing bacteria (KSB) to increase the soluble K content in soil has been regarded as a desirable pathway to increase plant yields. Following the inoculation of KSB in the soil, potassium can be released (in the form of K⁺) and consumed by plants. Read More

An intensive 5-year-long influenza vaccination campaign is effective among doctors but not nurses.

Infection 2012 Feb 29;40(1):57-62. Epub 2011 Sep 29.

Infectious Diseases/Department of Medicine Kantonsspital Baden, Switzerland Kantonsspital Baden AG, 5404 Baden, Switzerland.

Objective: To double the vaccination rates of hospital employees from 20 to 40% by specific interventions over a 5-year period (2003-2007). The secondary endpoint was to compare the effects of the avian influenza in 2005 (intervention period) and the H1N1 influenza pandemic in 2009 (follow-up period, 2008-2009) on vaccination rates.

Design, Setting, And Participants: Free vaccination and its intensive propagation from 2003-2007 in a 400-bed teaching hospital with 1,687 hospital employees. Read More

The nematicidal effect of some bacterial biofertilizers on Meloidogyne incognita in sandy soil.

Braz J Microbiol 2011 Jan;42(1):105-13

Department of Agricultural Microbiology, Faculty of Agriculture, Ain Shams University, Shoubra El-Kheima , 11241, Cairo , Egypt.

In a greenhouse experiment, the nematicidal effect of some bacterial biofertilizers including the nitrogen fixing bacteria (NFB) Paenibacillus polymyxa (four strains), the phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) Bacillus megaterium (three strains) and the potassium solubilizing bacteria (KSB) B. circulans (three strains) were evaluated individually on tomato plants infested with the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita in potted sandy soil. Comparing with the uninoculated nematode-infested control, the inoculation with P. Read More
