Efficacy Of P. Putida And P. Fluorescens Isolates

Good Essays
P. putida and P. fluorescens isolates were cultured in 250 ml Laurea Broth (LB) medium at 30±1 ºC for 36 h in an incubator shaker at 150 rpm. The culture was then poured into 50 ml falcon tubes and centrifuged for 10 min. at 6000 ×g at 4 ºC. The pellet was washed thrice in 15 ml distilled water and centrifuged. Then it was dissolved in distilled water and the optical density (O.D) of the culture was set at position-1 at 600 nm=107–108 colony forming units (CFU) ml-1 for inoculation (Bhuvaneswari et al. 1980). Maize B73 (Z. mays L.) seeds were then inoculated with selected bacterial cultures for 2 h, while control plants group was mock-inoculated with sterilized water only.

Maize B73 variety seeds were surface disinfected with 75 % ethanol for 3 min, and then treated with sodium hypochlorite (2 %) for 5 min. The washing was repeated with sterile distilled water for 3 times (2 min). The efficacy of surface sterilization was checked by plating the seeds and aliquots of the final rinsing sterilized distilled water onto LB plates. When no colonies were observed on the LB plates, seeds were considered to be successfully surface disinfected. Seeds were incubated in bacterial suspensions (P. putida and P. fluorescens) for 12 hours. For the control group, seeds were treated with sterilized water as a mock inoculation. Three inoculated seeds were sown in each cylindrical shape pot having 6 inch diameter and were thinned to one plant after one week of germination of seedlings. Each pot contained ~2 kg of the sterilized growth media

    For the DRP1 samples we set up tubes labelled A, B, and C. Tube A contained 249.5 µl of serum free media and 0.5 µl Mito-GFP plasmid. Tube B contained 224.5 µl serum free media, 0.5 µl mito-GFP plasmid, and 25 µl DRP1 dsRNA. Two tube C were premade and contained 240 µl and 10 µl cellfection liposome solution. After the tubes were mixed by hand, 250 µl of tube C was added to A and B and mixed gently before being incubated for 30 minutes. Examining Phenotypes and Microscopy: To examine the results of thread manipulation, we captured images of the control and affected Thread cells.…

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

Bacterial suspensions were adjusted to 1.5×108 CFU/mL by 0.5 mcfarland solution then spreaded on the surface of Muller Hinton agar using sterile cotton swabs. Afterward, filter blank paper discs were impregnated with each of two solutions for 3 and 30 seconds, respectively and placed on the surface of the medium. The plates were incubated at 37 °C for 3-4 days. The antibacterial activity of coating was evaluated by measuring the diameter of the inhibition…

    Bast was immersed in 0.85% solution of Triton X-100 at 40 ⁰C for 10 min, followed by soaking in sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution at varies concentrations (1, 2 4, 6 and 8%) at 100 ⁰C for 60 min. For enzymatic retting, the fiber was treated with chelating agent, enthylenediamine-tetraacetic acid, then immersed in 0.85% solution of Triton X-100 at 40 ⁰C for 10 min, followed by adding of pectinase at different concentrations (0.25, 0.5, 1.0 and 3%) at 50 ⁰C for an hour. They concluded all treatment resulted in reduction of lignin and addition of 3% pectinase into the treatment produced optimum decreased by almost one-half of lignin content compared to unretted fibers. Lee et al. (2004) concluded that chemical retting is more effective to remove hemicellulose, whilst enzymatic retting was more effective to remove lignin.…

    After the gel has been allowed to run for about an hour, the isoelectric tube will be rinsed with running buffer and set aside. Next, an SDS gel will be prepared in order to separate the proteins based on mass. This will be done by sandwiching two spacers between two glass plates and placing them within a plastic bag. The plate/bag assembly will then be placed into a casting stand and filled with a solution consisting of 12% gel mix, 80 microliters of 100 mg/ml ammonium persulfate, and 15 microliters of TEMED. Next, a comb will be wedged between the two plates and the solution will be allowed to solidify.…
