Abstract: Background Francisella is a genus of gram-negative bacterium highly virulent in fishes and human where F. tularensis is causing the serious disease tularaemia in human. Recently Francisella species have been reported to cause mortality in aquaculture species like Atlantic cod and tilapia. We have completed the sequencing and draft assembly of the Francisella noatunensis subsp. orientalisToba04 strain isolated from farmed Tilapia. Compared to other available Francisella genomes, it is most similar to the genome of Francisella philomiragia subsp. philomiragia, a free-living bacterium not virulent to human. Results The genome is rearranged compared to the available Francisella genomes even though we found no IS-elements in the genome. Nearly 16% percent of the predicted ORFs are pseudogenes. Computational pathway analysis indicates that a number of the metabolic pathways are disrupted due to pseudogenes. Comparing the novel genome with other available Francisella genomes, we found around 2.5% of unique genes present in Francisella noatunensis subsp. orientalis Toba04 and a list of genes uniquely present in the human-pathogenic Francisella subspecies. Most of these genes might have transferred from bacterial species through horizontal gene transfer. Comparative analysis between human and fish pathogen also provide insights into genes responsible for pathogenecity. Our analysis of pseudogenes indicates that the evolution of Francisella subspecies’s pseudogenes from Tilapia is old with large number of pseudogenes having more than one inactivating mutation. Conclusions The fish pathogen has lost non-essential genes some time ago. Evolutionary analysis of the Francisella genomes, strongly suggests that human and fish pathogenic Francisella species have evolved independently from free-living metabolically competent Francisella species. These findings will contribute to understanding the evolution of Francisella species and pathogenesis.
Native Expanding Merremia boisiana Is Not More Allelopathic than Its Non-Expanding Congener M. vitifolia in the Expanded Range in Hainan  [PDF]

Abstract: Exotic invaders may possess novel biochemical weapons that native plants do not have, and these novel biochemical weapons may be more allelopathic than those from native plants to other native competitors. During range expansion, native species also encounter many new plant competitors. Thus, allelochemicals from native expanding species may also be more novel and allelopathic than those from non-expanding species to other plant competitors in the expanded range. We test this hypothesis using the native expanding Merremia boisiana and its non-expanding congener M. vitifolia in year 2012 inthe expanded range inHainan. In petridish bioassays, we found that aqueous extracts of M. boisiana leaves were often less inhibitory or more stimulatory to seed germination and seedling growth of five vegetable species than those of M. vitifolia leaves. In pot culture, we also found that aqueous leaf extracts of the two congeners could both inhibit the growth of a naturally co-occurring plant Paederia scanden, but their effects did not differ from each other. These results indicate that while allelopathy may contribute to the competitive ability of M. boisiana, it may not act as a novel weapon explaining its success in the expanded range in Hainan.

Abstract: This study examined the allelopathic effect of Ludwigia decurrens and L. adscendens exudates on germination, seedling growth (hypocotyl and radicle elongation), seedling mortality, vegetative growth and reproductive yield of Corchorus olitorious. Ludwigia decurrens, L. adscedens exudates and tap water (control) were applied to seeds of Corchorus olitorious over a period of 15 days and to 3 weeks old seedling for a period of 4 weeks. Ludwigia exudates had no inhibitory effect on the germination percentage of C. olitorious, but the exudates from the two Ludwigia spp. induced mortality rate of the 15 day old seedlings (control: 5.00%, L. decurrens: 17.50%, L. adscendens: 26.88%) and a significant decrease in seedling elongation (hypocotyl and radicle length) of C. olitorious. For the vegetative growth experiment, results showed that the stem length, stem fresh weight and leaf area of C. olitorious were significantly inhibited during week 6 (P<0.05) by L. decurrens and L. adscendens exudates. For reproductive yield experiment, number of pods per plant was significantly reduced on week 11. The high percentage mortality rate observed in seedlings might be an important factor in reducing seedling survival of Corchorus olitorious in habitats where the two Ludwigia spp are dominant.

The purpose of this study is to determine the allelopathic effects of extracts obtained by using liquid nitrogen from the plant of Antep radish (Raphanus sa-tivus L.) and little radish (Raphanus sativus L. var. radikula) on germination and seedling growth of sterile oats. The experiments were carried out in six groups with root, stem and root stem mixed extracts of radish plants (Antep and little radish). A novel method that we developed based on the principle of liquid nitrogen crushing was used for extraction. According to this method, Antep radish and little radish plant parts were frozen with liquid nitrogen aid and then crushed to powder. These powders obtained were stored at ?20?C for nine months until the experiments were established. The aqueous solutions prepared at specific concentrations (0%, 1%, 2%, 4%, 8%, 16%) from the ob-tained radish powders were applied as 5 ml to per each petri dishes contain 10 seeds on Whatman No: 1 double layer filter paper. Experiments were carried out in six replicates for each concentration. The prepared petri dishes were kept in the incubator at 15?C for 15 days. At the end of the experimental period, the number of germination of the seeds of sterile wild oat plant was evaluated by measuring the length of seedling root and stem. As a result, as the concentra-tion of allelopathic solutions increased in all experimental groups, the number of germination and root and stem lengths of sterile wild oats decreased. Alt-hough allelopathic effects in all three experimental groups were observed in terms of germination number and seedling lengths, the most significant effects were observed in the results of Antep radish root experiments. In this experi-ment group, the inhibition rate of root and stem length of weed seeds at a con-centration of 16% were 86% and 82%, respectively, when compared to the control. In addition, the germination number was reduced by 74.36% in the seeds at the highest concentration compared to the control. As a result of the study, it was determined that samples of radish plant crushed with liquid nitro-gen were stored for a long time and showed high allelopathic effect on sterile wild oats plant.

Abstract: The in vitro antibacterial activity of Hedyotis umbellata (aerial parts) was investigated against Staphyllococcus aureus, S. citreus, Streptococcus faecalis, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella aerogenes, Shigella flexneri, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa at 20 mg/ml, whereas the alcohol extract did not show any promising activity. The ethyl acetate eluate of the chloroform extract showed a zone of inhibition of 10mm against B. subtilis and E. coli , at 20 mg/ml.
