Resumo

The bacteriumPseudomonas entomophilahas been recognized as an exceptional species within thePseudomonasgenus, capable of naturally infecting and killing insects from at least three different orders.P. entomophilaingestion leads to irreversible gut damage resulting from a global blockage of translation, which impairs both immune and tissue repair systems in the insect intestine. In this study we isolated aP. entomophilabacterial strain from soil samples which displayed a strong activity againstXanthomonas citrisubsp,citri(Xcc), the etiological agent of citrus canker disease. The antagonism potential of isolated bacteria againstXccand its ability to reduce citrus canker severity was assessed bothex plantaandin planta. Our findings show that pathogenicity assays inCitrus x limoniaby pressure infiltration and spray with a mixture ofP. entomophilaandXccleaded to a significant reduction in the number of canker lesions in high susceptible citrus leaves, at 21 days post-infection. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of antibacterial activity ofP. entomophilaagainst a phytopathogenic bacterium. Collective action ofP. entomophilafactors such as diketopiperazine production and the type 6 secretion system (T6SS) may be involved in this type of biological control of citrus canker. The results suggest that theP. entomophilastrain could be a promising biocontrol agent acting directly againstXcc. (AU)
