Metabolic potential of endophytic bacteria

Metabolic potential of endophytic bacteria | Erba Volant - Applied Plant Science | Scoop.it

The bacterial endophytic microbiome promotes plant growth and health and beneficial effects are in many cases mediated and characterized by metabolic interactions. Recent advances have been made in regard to metabolite production by plant microsymbionts showing that they may produce a range of different types of metabolites. These substances play a role in defense and competition, but may also be needed for specific interaction and communication with the plant host. Furthermore, few examples of bilateral metabolite production are known and endophytes may modulate plant metabolite synthesis as well. We have just started to understand such metabolic interactions between plants and endophytes, however, further research is needed to more efficiently make use of beneficial plant-microbe interactions and to reduce pathogen infestation as well as to reveal novel bioactive substances of commercial interest.

Highlighted are poorly investigated interactions that endophytes have with host plants, insect herbivores and with each other, and the diverse molecular mechanisms that might trigger similar chemical responses in both plants and endophytes. Elucidating such networks can enhance discovery of desirable endophytes and further sustain production of host plant compounds using the isolated endophytes

Bacterial endophytes enhance competition by invasive plants

This work suggests a major role of endophytes on growth and resource allocation of an invasive plant. Indeed, bacterial isolate physiology is correlated with invader effects on biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen, phosphate, and iron.

Bacteria in innumerable numbers share a deep and integral association with bananas, but show apparently mutualistic benefits with no obvious adverse effect.
