In respect to this, is Pseudomonas putida harmful to humans?
putida, called multiplasmid hydrocarbon-degrading Pseudomonas, is the first patented organism in the world. putida is preferable to some other Pseudomonas species capable of such degradation, as it is a safe species of bacteria, unlike P. aeruginosa, for example, which is an opportunistic human pathogen.
what is Pseudomonas for plants? Pseudomonas fluorescens is an aerobic, gram-negative, ubiquitous organism present in agricultural soils and well adapted to grow in the rhizosphere. This rhizobacterium possesses many traits to act as a biocontrol agent and to promote the plant growth ability. It grows rapidly in vitro and can be mass- produced.
Beside above, what does Pseudomonas fluorescens cause?
This bacterium is usually non-pathogenic; however, it has been known to cause infection in people who are immunocompromised, such as cancer patients. Symptoms of Pseudomonas fluorescens infections include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, confusion, and rapid heart beat.
How are Pseudomonas species different?
Pseudomonas gives negative Voges Proskauer, indole and methyl red tests, but a positive catalase test. While some species show a negative reaction in the oxidase test, most species, including P. fluorescens, give a positive result (see Figure 2).
