Diseases Caused by Pseudomonas syringe

https://pnwhandbooks.org/node/408/print

Pseudomonas syringae is responsible for a number of economically important diseases in the Pacific Northwest. This bacterium can infect a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. Several important factors about these diseases must be considered before control measures can be implemented. This article will focus on symptoms, plant susceptibility, sources, and spread of the bacterium. Once these are known, cultural, biological, and chemical management methods can be effective.

Plant Symptoms Caused by Pseudomonas syringae

A variety of symptoms are associated with woody plants infected by Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae. Symptoms and symptom development depend on the species of plant infected, the plant part infected, the strain of Pseudomonas syringae, and the environment. More than one symptom can be simultaneously on a single plant.

Genetically Modified Weather: The Tale of FROSTBAN™ Synthetic Bacteria

Question:  What was the very first GMO introduced into the ecosystem?

I'm willing to bet you'll never guess it right.

Answer:  FROSTBAN™ genetically engineered variant of Pseudomonas syringae (P. syringae) bacteria.

Yes, the first GMO was a single-celled saprophytic bacteriaengineered to keep frost off of crops.

How was this done?

  1. P. syringae's DNA was digested with enzymes;
  2. Individual DNA segments were made into plasmids, which inserted randomly to form variations of recombinant DNA;
  3. Other common bacteria was transformed with the recobinant DNA plasmids, which then became part of the bacteria's DNA;
  4. The ice-gene segment was identified in the recombinant DNA;
  5. The ice-gene was amplified via PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology;
  6. Mutation of the ice-gene was done to remove the ice-forming genetic coding;
  7. Then the mutated (non-ice-forming) genetic code was inserted into the P. syringae bacterium to create the Ice-minus strain
  8. The genetically-modified Ice-minus strain now lacks the surface coating that helps produce frost.

These facts, by themselves, are boring.  FROSTBAN™ (never sold commercially - original company merged into Seminis Inc.), is boring.

The tale to come — I promise you — not boring.
