Description

A close relative or strain of Pseudomonas chlororaphis isolated from local soil samples was previously shown to inhibit the growth of E. faecalis, S. epidermidis, and E. coli when grown competitively using a cross streak method. The US EPA has identified some strains of Pseudomonas chlororaphis as effective fungicides when added directly to the soil. Organic extracts from this bacteria has been tested against several ESKAPE pathogens using both direct application and TLC–bioautography. Further work to isolate and test the antimicrobial compounds produced by this bacteria closely related to Pseudomonas chlororaphis will be discussed.
