The rhizosphere of the great diversity of plants is a complex ecosystem that houses thousands of rhizobacteria that promote plant growth. In the current investigation, three bacteria were isolated from the root of Suaeda sp., which were evaluated to determine the ef fect of their inoculation on Arabidopsis thaliana at distances of 2 and 5 cm and in...

Cucurbitaceae species are used in traditional medicine around the world. Cucurbitacins are highly oxygenated triterpenoids found in Cucurbitaceae species and exhibit potent anticancer activity alone and in combination with other existing chemotherapeutic drugs. Therefore, increasing production of these specialized metabolites is of great relevance....

Cucumber fruit is rich in fiber, carbohydrates, protein, magnesium, iron, vitamin B, vitamin C, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, and antioxidants. Agrochemical-based production of cucumber has tripled yields; however, excessive synthetic fertilization has caused problems in the accumulation of salts in the soil and has increased production costs. Th...

The malacofauna of the Sabinas River basin, Coahuila, North Mexico, was studied at 9 sites. In total, 21 native and 2 invasive species were found. Nineteen species were gastropods and 4 species were bivalves. One genus and 2 species of subterranean gastropods are endemic to the area. We report for the first time, a member of the family Amnicolidae...

Climate change and its consequences have stimulated the development of new bioprocesses to reduce CO2 concentrations. One approach to address this problem is to recycle CO2 directly into biofuels or chemicals using chemolithotrophic bacteria. The objective of this study was to evaluate the hydrogen and alcohols production capacity of a chemolithotr...

Roots provide physical and nutritional support to aboveground plant organs and play critical roles for adaptation via intricate movements and growth patterns. Through screening the effects of bacterial isolates from roots of halophyte Mesquite (Prosopis sp.) on Arabidopsis thaliana, we identified Achromobacter sp. 5B1 as a probiotic bacterium that...

We present an updated checklist of native Mexican freshwater gastropods with data on their general distribution, hotspots of endemicity, threats, and for the first time, their estimated conservation status. The list contains 193 species, representing 13 families and 61 genera. Of these, 103 species (53.4%) and 12 genera are endemic to Mexico, and 7...

Main conclusion CRK28, a cysteine-rich receptor-like kinase, plays a role in root organogenesis and overall growth of plants and antagonizes abscisic acid response in seed germination and primary root growth. Abstract Receptor-like kinases (RLK) orchestrate development and adaptation to environmental changes in plants. One of the largest RLK group...

RESUMEN El declive de la diversidad de especies dulceacuícolas es un fenómeno mundial, pero es especialmente pro-nunciado en las regiones áridas como en el Desierto Chihuahuense de Coahuila y Durango, norte-centro de México. Existen pocos datos históricos sobre la distribución y ninguna información sobre extinciones de gasterópodos dulceacuícolas m...

The decline of freshwater species diversity is a worldwide phenomenon but it is especially pronounced in arid regions such as in the Chihuahuan Desert of Coahuila and Durango, Northern Mexico. There are few historical data on the distribution but no data on extinctions of Mexican freshwater gastropods. In such cases, paleontological data can be ver...

Microorganisms play an important role in plant development, beneficial microbes have several strategies that help plants to avoid different biotic stresses (pathogens, herbivory, etc.) and abiotic stress (salinity, drought, extreme temperature, heavy metals toxicity, among others). These beneficial bacteria confer abiotic stress tolerance by phytoh...

Saline soils are a major problem for agriculture, commonly salinization reduces the area for agriculture in arid and semiarid regions. On the other hand ecosystems with natural saline soils represent biotopes where the halophytes grow and develop without problems. The rhizospheres of halophytes represent excellent niches to fi nd salt tolerant rhiz...

Plants are associated with a wide range of microorganisms, and these interactions induce changes in both the plant and microorganism. Transcription factors play an important role in the regulation of large numbers of genes associated to plant–microbe response. WRKY transcription factors have been involved in the responses to plant–pathogen interact...

Plants are constantly exposed to microbes, for this reason they have evolved sophisticated strategies to perceive and identify biotic interactions. Thus, plants have large collections of so-called resistance (R) proteins that recognize specific microbe factors as signals of invasion. One of these proteins is codified by the Arabidopsis thaliana HR4...
