Nitrogenase Activity of Pseudomonas corrugata Isolated from Egyptian Lettuce

Emad A. Abada

In the present study an isolate capable of root colonization of Egyptian Lettuce was isolated from the roots after selective enrichment. The isolated strain was identified as Pseudomonas corrugata by using Biochemical and Biolog identification system. The isolate has been found to be positive for nitrogenase activity. This root-colonized bacterium has not been previously isolated from Egyptian Lettuce and could be used as a bio-fertilizer.
