This plot provided summary statistics for five values: the minimum, the maximum, the median, the 25th percentile, and the 75th percentile. The probable differences between these species in characteristics such as host range with and outside Rutaceae and over summering are new issues in need of resolution. multiply in almost any moist environment containing even trace amounts These diseases are widespread in Iran under cool and wet conditions. Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas fluorescens Trigger Common and Distinct Systemic Immune Responses in Arabidopsis thaliana Depending on the Pathogen Lifestyle. of Eleven phenotypic groupings were detected with 89â90% similarity; 2 clusters corresponded to the P. putida phenotype, 6 corresponded to the P. fluorescens phenotype, and 3 corresponded to the P. syringae phenotype. Pseudomonas fluorescens DSM 50090 is a thermophilic, gram-negative, rod-shaped human pathogen that has a faint greenish-yellow pigmentation and has multiple antibiotic resistances. To determine the phylogenetic affiliation of the rpoD gene groupings in the genus Pseudomonas, 53 strains were selected as representatives of the 11 rpoD gene groupings for a multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) according to the following criterion: at least 2 strains per rpoD phylogenetic group were selected to have representative strains of each phylogroup and to assess the phylogenetic diversity within each group. Individual trees were generated for the 16S rRNA, gyrB, and rpoD partial gene alignments. Pyocin typing cell lysis. Debride the wound, wash . a. Pseudomonas is a clinically significant and opportunistic pathogen, often causing nosocomial infections. The following preliminary phenotypic tests were used to identify the strains as possible members of the genus Pseudomonas: cell morphology, Gram staining, motility, oxidase, catalase, oxidation/fermentation of glucose and production of a fluorescent pigment on King B medium (S3 Table). It acts by Immunotherapy - an experimental 2. There was a considerable difference in virulence among strains of the same group as depicted by the diameter of the lesion and the rate of expansion of necrosis. The isolates of Group II were close to the type strains of P. libanensis and P. synxantha (95.9â96.0% for isolate FBF23; 95.9â96.0% for isolate FBF56). Several strains in our study (71 strains) showed a LOPAT pattern different from the patterns corresponding to P. syringae or P. viridiflava. Pyocyanin formation - Farid Beiki, with ribosome and causing misreading of mRNA. Re-isolation from the representative isolates on plates of NA was performed 15â21 days after inoculation.

Strains belonging to P. orientalis, P. synxantha, P. simiae, P. lurida, and P. monteilii were also identified; furthermore, at least 5 putative novel species were identified. Pseudomonas fluorescens. Pseudomonas aeruginosa Alan R. Hauser and Egon A. Ozer Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that infects humans with compromised natural defences. Some of these One hundred microliters of bacterial suspension was injected into the intercellular space of orange leaves with a 0.5 mm needle and syringe . Leaf lesions extend through the petiole to the stem and expand in both directions. The collection of 126 Pseudomonas strains has been identified and characterized taxonomically by extensive numerical analyses of phenotypic features and by a multilocus sequencing approach, which includes analyses of partial sequences of the 16S rRNA, gyrB and rpoD genes. Bacteria of the genus Pseudomonas are ubiquitous inhabitants of soil, water, plant surfaces, and animal tissues; this phenomenon is due to their ability to establish in different niches (Walker et al., 2004; Perkins et al., 2010), and is driven mainly by their high metabolic versatility (Oberhardt et al., 2008). 4. Do not create anaerobic causes melioidosis, a glanders-like disease with clinical manifestations areas of the human skin (axilla, groin) and in the saliva. The highest similarity detected for the isolates of Group I was with P. orientalis (96.9â97.0%). It is All sequence accession numbers used in this article are shown in S1 Table. Are Pathogenic to Citrus. One hundred and forty strains were positive in the pathogenicity tests conducted, and the strains phenotypically related to Pseudomonas strains (126) were studied further (Table 1, S1, S2 and S3 Tables). aeruginosa and the suppression of Pseudomonas infections predisposes Expansion of the lesions often leads to girdling of the affected branch and withering of the portions distal to the lesion . The genus Pseudomonas contains many species that range from harmless commensals to antibioticresistant pathogens.  and Berge et al. one of the most difficult organisms to treat with antibiotics. A similarity matrix was generated using a simple matching coefficient, and the results are depicted in a dendrogram constructed by the UPGMA algorithm. 2. For by peritrichous flagella. In the majority of cases (84%), the Alemow cultivar was less resistant than the other two cultivars tested (S3 Table). The symptoms were less severe under field conditions. The individual and concatenated partial sequences of the three genes were used to construct the corresponding phylogenetic trees. This rhizobacterium possesses many traits to act as a biocontrol agent and to promote the plant growth ability. However, a new aerosolized version of the antibiotic (trade name TOBI) Hemolysin - lysis red are gram- bacteria which morphologically resemble enteric bacilli In general, the occurrence of disease symptoms is influenced by several factors, such as temperature, humidity, oxygen depletion, varietal susceptibility and the virulence of the bacterial strains. Pathogenic Pseudomonas are found throughout the body, most commonly in the urinary tract, respiratory tract, blood and wounds 1. They favor moist areas and are widely found in soil and water. Gentamicin - an aminoglycoside antibiotic consisting of three closely related being made to employ immunotherapy. the body (especially in tendons, hair, nails). It has also The 126 strains were studied using a polyphasic approach that included phenotypic characterizations and phylogenetic multilocus sequence analysis. A similarity matrix was generated using the Simple Matching Coefficient, and a dendrogram was constructed using the unweighted pair group method with arithmetic averages (UPGMA).

The 7 isolates of Group V showed a similarity of 94.8â94.9% with P. marginalis and P. grimontii. only three are known to be pathogenic for man: P. aeruginosa - sputum this type of This method is well suited for routine assessments of citrus plant lots for quality control to limit the chance of increasing the genetic diversity of Pseudomonas populations through the importation of foreign plants. Especially prevalent in nosocomial infections, external ear infections. syringae  and P. viridiflava . of patients with cystic fibrosis, burns, urinary tract infections. to septicemia. Farmers use bactericidal compounds to control the disease (e.g., copper oxychloride); however, this practice could cause serious damage to the environment and human health and also promotes the selection of pathogenic strains with increased tolerance to copper [9, 10]. The segment was cut into small pieces in drops of SDW, left for 10â20 min in a sterile laminar air flow cabinet and drops of the suspension were streaked on plates of nutrient agar (NA) medium (Merck, Germany). These eight strains were located in two independent branches; one branch had three isolates that were close to P. syringae and P. congelans, and there were five strains in the other independent branch. The closest type strain to the isolates of Group XI was P. japonica, although this strain exhibited a low level of similarity (91.9%). Differentiation of species in the P. syringae species complex by phenotypic characteristics, 16S rDNA phylogenetic analysis and cell wall fatty acid composition lacked the required resolution for reliable differentiation of the taxa [12, 13, 14]. infections. Valldemossa km 7.5, 07122 Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Affiliation: Strains in groups II (10 strains), V (13 strains), VII (1 strain), VIII (5 strains), IX (10 strains), X (4 strains) and XI (4 strains), which represented 37% of the isolates, could not be assigned to a known species and are considered representatives of at least 5 putative novel Pseudomonas species because each group is phylogenetically and phenotypically homogeneous and distinct from known species type strains. This is the first report of pathogenicity on citrus of P. orientalis, P. simiae, P. lurida, P. moraviensis and P. monteilii strains. It is similar in action to streptomycin, affecting the 30S portion Pyocyanin - water soluble Its Pseudomonas putida and Pseudomonas fluorescens were used in this study as they exhibit properties similar to those of P. … Abstract Five putative novel Pseudomonas species shown to be pathogenic to citrus have been characterized in a screening of 126 Pseudomonas strains isolated from diseased citrus leaves and stems in northern Iran. P. Exopolysaccharides (EPS) were only produced by strains belonging to the P. fluorescens phenotypic clusters I, II, and V and the P. syringae clusters VI and VII (Fig 2). The Alborz Mountain Range surrounds the coastal strip and plains of the Caspian Sea like a huge barrier. Strains of Pseudomonas species previously not considered as pathogenic to plants (P. simiae, P. orientalis, P. moraviensis and P. monteilii) and at least five putative novel species were isolated and characterized taxonomically by means of a polyphasic approach; the pathogenic properties of these strains to citrus were demonstrated in the present study. An analysis of three concatenated genes (16S rRNA, gyrB, rpoD; 2,818 nucleotides in total) was performed as described by Mulet et al. A total of 2.5 Î¼l of each primer was used at a concentration of 10 Î¼M, with 5 U of Taq DNA polymerase (EG Healthcare), in a total volume of 50 Î¼l. Forty-six isolates belonged to phenotypic cluster VI in the P. syringae species complex. Distribution per geographical region of the 11 groups of strains in this study. Over a 1-month period we observed a sharp increase in the isolation of P. fluorescens from weekly pharyngeal surveillance swabs. Citrus blast is one of the most important citrus diseases in the northern citrus growing provinces of Iran, which represents 60% of the total citrus growing area in Iran (approximately 100,000 ha). and sphingomyelin, The origins and geographical locations of the strains are indicated in S1 Table. Assignation to pathovars of strains identified as members of the. Three isolates of phenotypic cluster VII were close to the P. viridiflava type strain.

The polyphasic taxonomic study of the 126 strains analyzed demonstrated that only strains in group VI (P. syringae, 46 strains) and group VII (P. viridiflava, 2 strains) could be identified as members of these two species. SYNONYM OR CROSS REFERENCE: P. aeruginosa, P. stutzeri, P. fluorescens CHARACTERISTICS: The genus Pseudomonas, of the Pseudomonadaceae family, are motile gram-negative aerobic bacteria, 2 – 4 μm long plump-shaped rods, with polar flagella which have an important role in pathogenicity Footnote 1-Footnote 3. Partial sequences of the rpoD gene have been proposed for the differentiation of Pseudomonas species, with a species cut-off at 95% sequence similarity [18, 5]. The major clinical features used in diagnosis are: 1. The plant pathogenic Pseudomonas species that belong to the Pseudomonas syringae species complex include P. cannabina, P. avellanae, P. amygdali, P. ficuserectae, P. savastanoi, P. tremae, P. meliae, P. caricapapayae and P. syringae [(ISPP Taxonomy of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria Committee; http://www.isppweb.org/names_bacterial.asp); ]. It is a secondary pathogen in S2 Table. S1 Fig. Mafenide acetate (sulfamylon) - administered topically as a 5-10% cream. Pyocin typing - similar Eleven rpoD gene sequence groups were identified (Table 2). Some authors have also included the pectinolytic species P. viridiflava and the oxidase-positive species P. cichorii within this group . Three different citrus cultivars were used in the pathogenicity tests: Alemow (Citrus macrophylla, the most sensitive cultivar in an extensive natural infection in 1998 in northern Iran) and the two most abundant cultivars in the region, Washington navel (Citrus sinensis) and Sour Orange (Citrus aurantium). e. Plant pathogenic Pseudomonas spp. To further identify the 54 strains affiliated with the P. syringae species complex, a phylogenetic tree was constructed using the partial sequences of the rpoD gene (455 nt) published by Parkinson et al. The result of lecithinase Funding: The work was supported by BOS2011 CGL24318 and Consolider CSD2009-00006 from Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness - MINECO. The phytopathogenic, oxidase-negative fluorescent Pseudomonas species have been traditionally identified as either P. syringae or P. viridiflava. The length and nucleotide positions are in reference to P. aeruginosa type strain DSM 50071T: the 16S rRNA gene (X06684) nucleotide positions from 98 to 1372; the gyrB gene (AB039386) nucleotide positions from 326 to 1122; and the rpoD gene (AB039607) nucleotide positions from 94 to 743. dysoxyli, 16 strains; pv. compounds. lapsa/pv. giving an alkaline urine. The most dangerous group is Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a leading cause of concern as the source of many antibiotic-resistant infections. antibiotic resistance More than 1,000 strains were isolated in an initial screening from samples of citrus leaves and twigs with blast disease symptoms collected from different regions of Iran (Gilan, Mazandaran and Golestan provinces) in 2009â2010. At least 5 putative novel species have been detected, and their formal proposal is underway. area (lymphatics, lymph nodes and skin). However, the remaining isolates were related to other Pseudomonas species. Members of both the Pseudomonas fluorescens-Pseudomonas putidaspecies complex and Pseudomonas chlororaphis(including Pseudomonas aureofaciens) have demonstrated in vitro antagonism toward several soil microfungi, but with great variability among the strains (7). No exact crop loss data are available. Five strains of phenotypic cluster VIII were located in an independent branch between the phylogenetic groups of P. syringae and P. lutea. Group VII (two strains) consisted of isolates identified as P. viridiflava. Six applications of a mixed PGPRs culture (Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf-01 and P. chlororaphis CECT 462) on the productivity of sugar beet were performed.Three different treatments, with four replicates in a completely randomized block design, … These results are in accordance with the proposal of Scotta and collaborators , who recommended the use of the rpoD gene for routine and epidemiological studies of Pseudomonas clinical strains. are simple and it can metabolize a large variety of carbon sources. dialysis machines.

Some species of this bacteria, such as P. aeruginosa, are opportunistic pathogens that secrete extracellular proteases and adhere and invade host tissue. the most part they are found wherever organic matter is decomposing. Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. The highest median severity, measured in mm2 of the lesion, was found among strains in group VII of the P. syringae phylogenetic group. f. blocking DNA gyrase. aeruginosa can thus severely limits the uptake of antibiotics. http://www.isppweb.org/names_bacterial.asp. of P. aeruginosa strains will not produce pyocyanin. The number of strains and the number of non-pathogenic strains for each group tested are indicated below each graph. Pseudomonas fluorescens is not generally considered a bacterial pathogen in humans; however, multiple culture-based and culture-independent studies have identified it at low levels in the indigenous microbiota of various body sites. The 53 representative strains were located in the P. fluorescens phylogenetic group (5 in the P. koreensis SG; 24 in the P. fluorescens SG), the P. syringae group (15 strains), and the P. putida group (9 strains) (Fig 5). The 21 Pseudomonas species described by Bull and collaborators  belong mainly to the P. syringae phylogenetic group (14 species), with 5 species associated with the P. fluorescens subgroup and 2 species associated with the P. corrugata subgroup. nosocomial infections, external ear infections. Sequence accession numbers are indicated for each strain in supplementary S1 Table. of the Fifty-three strains that are representatives of the 11 groups were selected and analyzed by partial sequencing of their 16S rRNA and gyrB genes.

Disease severity comparison of Pseudomonas strains of each group tested in three plant genotypes, measured by the lesion area expressed in mm2 two weeks after inoculation. Some pseudomonal species that previously were considered the causative agents of old diseases now are being reexamined for their potential use as biological warfare agents. glanders (transmitted from horse to man), nodular, necrotic involvement The combined results showed a high diversity among Pseudomonas strains pathogenic to citrus in Iran. (2016) doi: 10.1093/nar/gkv1227 (Database issue). There are two problems associated with To check the bacterial contamination of the surfaces in the food industries, the professionals must regularly use surface sampling methods to detect the pathogen such as Listeria monocytogenes or the spoilage such as Pseudomonas fluorescens. The 126 strains were able to induce lesions in citrus leaves under greenhouse conditions and were selected for characterization. Bacterial suspensions were adjusted to an optical density of 0.2 at 620 nm, corresponding to approximately 1 Ã 108 CFU/ml, as determined by dilution plating. When this organism is present in the body in small sinks, fuels, humidifiers and even stored distilled water. About 10% c. The disease has caused considerable damage to citrus orchards in recent years in this area, although it has not caused much damage in the other orchards in Iran. Pseudomonas infections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Other plants were not tested for susceptibility. The majority of the strains were identified at the species level: P. lurida (5 strains), P. monteilii (2 strains), P. moraviensis (1 strain), P. orientalis (16 strains), P. simiae (7 strains), P. syringae (46 strains, distributed phylogenetically in at least 5 pathovars), and P. viridiflava (2 strains). P. syringae and P. viridiflava are widespread on citrus foliage, although their presence does not always lead to disease development. The physiological and biochemical characteristics of the isolates were consistent with the characteristics previously described for the genus Pseudomonas, although discrepancies with known features of the classical citrus pathogens existed in the LOPAT tests (levan production, oxidase activity, potato soft rot, arginine dihydrolase activity, tobacco hypersensitivity).
