Abstract:

The following bacteria were identified in harvested uredospores Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus megaterium, Bacillus subtilis, and Bacillus polymyxa. Bacteria grown on uredospore extracts produced a volatile inhibitor of uredospore germination inhibitor apparently independent of bacterial action. Certain bacteria, especially Pseudomonas fluorescens, have the ability to destroy the nonvolatile germination inhibitor produced by uredospores. In addition to the bacteria found with uredospores, highly resistant bacterial endospores were found, making elimination of bacteria for purposes of research and maintenance of viability very difficult.
