    Biological Control Potential of Aneurinibacillus migulanus against Phytophthora Species
    Author(s): Faizah N Alenezi*

    Aneurinibacillus migulanus strains show potential in biocontrol against a wide range of plant pathogens, including Ascomycota, Basidiomycota and Oomycetes. However, suggested that production of a single antibiotic cyclic peptide, gramicidin S (GS), by the two strains, is not the sole mechanism of inhibition but the combination between the antibiotic and biosurfactants activity together. The sequenced genomes of Aneurinibacillus prompted us to apply genome mining techniques to identify the bioactive potential of A. migulanus to provide insights into the secondary metabolite arsenal of the genus Aneurinibacillus. Eleven secondary metabolite biosynthetic gene clusters were detected in the Aneurinibacillus species. These secondary metabolites play an important role in inhibition the growth for a wide range of plant pathogens and their ability t.. View More»
