Summary of "Mechanistic elucidation of germination potential and growth of wheat inoculated with exopolysaccharide and ACC- deaminase producing Bacillus strains under induced salinity stress."

The potential of plant growth regulating microorganisms present in the soil can be explored towards the purpose of identifying salt tolerant strategies and crop cultivars. Current study was designed to elucidate the capabilities of salt stress tolerant plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) Bacillus siamensis (PM13), Bacillus sp. (PM15) and Bacillus methylotrophicus (PM19) in undermining the effects of salt stress on wheat seedling. Strains were characterized for their IAA (81-113 μM/ml), ACC-deaminase (0.68-0.95 μM/mg protein/h) and exopolysaccharide (EPS) (0.62-0.97 mg/ml) producing activity both under normal and NaCl stressed conditions. Effects of bacterial inoculation on germination and seedling growth of wheat variety Pakistan-13 was observed under induced salinity stress levels (0, 4, 8, 16 dS/m). All the morpho-physiological characteristics of wheat seedlings were affected drastically by the NaCl stress and the growth parameters expressed a negative relationship with increased NaCl levels. PGPR application had a very positive influence on germination rate of wheat seedlings, root and shoot length, photosynthetic pigments etc. Elongated roots and enhanced vegetative shoot growth as well as seedling's fresh and dry weights were highest in plants treated with B. methylotrophicus PM19. Sequestration of Na ion by EPS production and degradation of exuded ACC into a-ketobutyrate and ammonia by ACCD bacteria efficiently reduced the impact of salinity stress on wheat growth. Current findings suggested that the used PGPR strains are potential candidates for improving crop growth in salt stressed agricultural systems. However further research validation would be necessary before large scale/field application.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The initial stages of the growth of SEEDS into a SEEDLING. The embryonic shoot (plumule) and embryonic PLANT ROOTS (radicle) emerge and grow upwards and downwards respectively. Food reserves for germination come from endosperm tissue within the seed and/or from the seed leaves (COTYLEDON). (Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990)

Allergic reaction to wheat that is triggered by the immune system.

A plant genus of the family POACEAE that is the source of wheat grain. A hybrid with rye (SECALE CEREALE) is called TRITICALE. The seed is ground into FLOUR and used to make BREAD, and is the source of WHEAT GERM AGGLUTININS.

Lectins purified from the germinating seeds of common wheat (Triticum vulgare); these bind to certain carbohydrate moieties on cell surface glycoproteins and are used to identify certain cell populations and inhibit or promote some immunological or physiological activities. There are at least two isoforms of this lectin.

A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
