Utilization of endophytic microorganisms for growth promotion of Miscanthus
Mrnka, Libor ; Frantík, Tomáš ; Schmidt, Christoph Stephan ; Lovecká, P.
Increased survival and aboveground biomass yield of Miscanthus was achieved due to the inoculation of Miscanthus seedlings by a mixed inocula based on the selected endophytic microbes (bacteria and fungi). Inoculated treatments produced 20-90% higher yield of biomass compared to the controls. Importantly, fungal inoculum increased also production of rhizomes and the same trend was observed in the treatment inoculated by the bacterial mixture. Bacterial endophytes also strongly augmented overwintering of the plants on one of the tested model plantations. Because the price of the inocula production is economically feasible and does not substantially increase the plantation establishment costs we hope for fast implementation of the methodology both in CR and beyond.
Real time in vivo monitoring of cytotoxic activity of two different antimicrobial peptides lasioglossin III and lasiocepsin
Tůmová, Tereza ; Lovecká, P. ; Čeřovský, Václav ; Slaninová, Jiřina
Real-time cell analyzer dual-plate (RTCA DP) can be used to dynamically test the cytotoxic activity of potent antimicrobial peptides. In this study, we tested the activity of two different antimicrobial peptides isolated from venom reservoirs of a wild bee against normal mammalian cell line – rat intestinal epithelial cells. The cytotoxic effect monitored by RTCA DP was expressed as IC50 and compared with the results of standard cytotoxic tests.
Následky interakcí mezi rostlinami a mikroby ovlivňujících osud xenobiotik v životním prostředí
Macková, Martina ; Vrchotová, N. ; Beranová, K. ; Najmanová, J. ; Lovecká, P. ; Kochánková, L. ; Sylvestre, M. ; Demnerová, Kateřina ; Macek, Tomáš
The effects and consequences of plant-microbe metabolic interactions influencing fate of xenobiotics in the environment.are discussed, illustrated by our results on PCB degradation by microflora in plant rhizosphere.
