Repression of mineral phosphate solubilizing phenotype in the presence of weak organic acids in plant growth promoting fluorescent pseudomonads

Repression of mineral phosphate solubilizing phenotype in the presence of weak organic acids in plant growth promoting fluorescent pseudomonads

Bioresource Technology 102(3): 3055-3061

Two phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB), M3 and SP1, were obtained from the rhizosphere of mungbean and sweet potato, respectively and identified as strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Their rock phosphate (RP) solubilizing abilities were found to be due to secretion high amount of gluconic acid. In the presence of malate and succinate, individually and as mixture, the P solubilizing ability of both the strains was considerably reduced. This was correlated with a nearly 80% decrease in the activity of the glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) but not gluconate dehydrogenase (GAD) in both the isolates. Thus, GDH enzyme, catalyzing the periplasmic production of gluconic acid, is under reverse catabolite repression control by organic acids in P. aeruginosa M3 and SP1. This is of relevance in rhizospheric conditions and is a new explanation for the lack of field efficacy of such PSB.
