Serratia proteamaculans 568

Names Serratia proteamaculans 568
Accession numbers NC_009829, NC_009832
Background Serratia proteamaculans 568, an Enterobacteriaceae, was isolated as a root endophyte from Populus trichocarpa. S.proteamaculans has been found promote plant growth, and it has been demonstrated that this occurs via the production of specific compounds, such as lipo-chitin oligosaccharides, which are used as specific bacteria-to-plant signals. Individual plant growth promoting bacteria produce specific structurally diverse LCO mixtures. Endophytes are bacteria that live within the tissue of a plant without substantively harming it. They can help promote plant growth in several ways, including helping the host overcome toxic effects of environmental pollution. (EBI Integr8)
