Bacteriocin Typing of Some Turkish Isolates of Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola


Abstract: Eighty-six Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola isolates collected from different bean growing areas in Eskişehir were typed for the production of bacteriocin.All the isolates tested produced bacteriocin and 24 bacteriosin groups were determined. No correlation was found between the bacteriocin groups and geographical origin. Authentic isolates of the bacterium representing 3 different races were also tested for bacteriocin production and bacteriocin types did not correlate with the races.

Keywords: Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola, bacteriocin, bacteriocin typing.
