Biocontrol ability of fluorescent pseudomonads genetically dissected: importance of positive feedback regulation.
Current Opinion in Biotechnology
Root diseases caused by fungal pathogens can be suppressed by certain rhizobacteria that effectively colonize the roots and produce extracellular antifungal compounds. To be effective, biocontrol bacteria need to be present at sufficiently high cell densities. These conditions favor the operation of positive feedback mechanisms that control the production of antifungal compounds in biocontrol strains of fluorescent pseudomonads, via both transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms.
