Bradyrhizobium elkanii USDA61 possesses a functional type III secretion system (T3SS) that controls host-specific symbioses with legumes. Here, we demonstrated that B. elkanii T3SS is essential for the nodulation of several southern Asiatic Vigna mungo cultivars. Strikingly, inactivation of either...

5-Br-4-Cl-3-Indoxyl-alpha-D-gluco(pyrano)side was found to be the most suitable synthetic substrate for the demonstration of alpha-D-glucosidases in situ. Using an azoindoxyl procedure with hexazotized pararosaniline or new fuchsine at pH 5 in freeze-dried celloidine-mounted cryostat sections acid alpha-D-glucosidase (EC was...

A new chromogenic compound, 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indoxyl-beta-D-glucuronide, was found to be useful for the rapid, specific, differential identification of Escherichia coli in the sanitary analysis of shellfish and wastewater. Of 1,025 presumptively positive colonies (blue) and 583 presumptively negative colonies (nonblue), only...
