Serratia marcescens as a biocontrol agent against Phytophthora capsici on cucumber seedlings and its transposon mutagenesis

Serratia marcescens as a biocontrol agent against Phytophthora capsici on cucumber seedlings and its transposon mutagenesis

Bulletin SROP 14(8): 122-126

Red pigmented S. marcescens str. F-1-1 isolated from the rhizosphere of Salvia splendens in Fukui Prefecture, Japan, was antagonistic to P. capsici in vitro and reduced damping-off of cultivated cucumber seedlings. The water-insoluble red pigments were isolated from cultures of str. F-1-1 and found to be inhibitory to P. capsici. Tn7-induced mutants were obtained at a frequency of 1 x 104/recipient. Of 5967 clones tested, 4 mutants without red pigments were found.
