Effects of volatile sulfur compounds on growth and oxidative stress of Rhizobium leguminosarum E20-8 exposed to cadmium.

Carina Sá et 5 al.

Aug 3, 2021 in The Science of the total environment
Volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) have been reported to be produced by many bacterial species. Depending on the compound, they can negatively influence some organisms (fungi, nematodes and insects) or promote plant growth. Some of these compounds have also been hypothesized to play a role in bacterial response to cadmium (Cd) induced stress. This study aimed to assess the potential effects of four ...

The role of volatiles in Rhizobium tolerance to cadmium: Effects of aldehydes and alcohols on growth and biochemical endpoints

Diana Matos et 6 al.

Dec 1, 2019 in Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety
Rhizobia have a significant agronomic and environmental role and are eminent contributors to soil fertility. However, this group of microorganisms are affected by various environmental stresses, such as Cd contamination. High Cd concentrations change bacterial metabolism. During this metabolic shift, bacteria alter their volatilome (the set of volatile metabolites synthesized by an organism). In t...

Bacteria from nodules of wild legume species: Phylogenetic diversity, plant growth promotion abilities and osmotolerance

Paulo Cardoso et 7 al.

Dec 1, 2018 in Science of The Total Environment
The demand for food with high nutritional value that can sustain the growth of human population while safeguarding sustainability deserves urgent attention. A possible strategy is the inoculation of crops with plant growth promoting (PGP) bacteria. Plants are naturally colonized by bacteria that can exert beneficial effects on growth and stress tolerance. N2 fixation by rhizobia in the root nodule...

Alginate as a feature of osmotolerance differentiation among soil bacteria isolated from wild legumes growing in Portugal

Carina Sá et 3 al.

May 1, 2019 in Science of The Total Environment
Plants are naturally colonized by bacteria that can exert beneficial effects on growth and stress tolerance. These bacteria can be used as inoculants to boost crop productivity and plants resilience, and can be especially interesting if they are able to survive to abiotic stresses, such as drought. Herein we report the mechanisms that soil bacteria resort to tolerate drought and we also explore th...

Percepção de controle e qualidade de vida: comparação entre idosos institucionalizados e não institucionalizados

Hilma Tereza...

Sep 1, 2014 in Revista Brasileira de Geriatria e Gerontologia
INTRODUCTION: Perceived control is a psychosocial resource, which has been associated to quality of life and well-being. Quality of life is a subjective and multidimensional construct. Perceived control refers to beliefs of managing own life. Elderly living in nursing homes are generally subject to numerous restrictions that can affect their perceived control and quality of life. OBJECTIVE: To inv...
