Bacterias endofitas: un nuevo campo de investigación para el desarrollo del sector agropecuario

Endophytic bacteria: a new field of research for development of agricultural sector

Contenido principal del artículo



Las bacterias endófitas habitan dentro de los tejidos de las plantas al menos durante una parte de su ciclo de vida sin causar daño alguno al hospedero, establecen asociación simbiótica y producen grandes beneficios para las plantas. Las bacterias endófitas cumplen una gran diversidad de funciones como promotoras de crecimiento vegetal, control biológico sobre una diversidad de fitopatógenos, mejoran la eficiencia de los procesos de fitoremediación de compuesto tóxicos en la rizósfera. Estos microorganismo son fuentes inagotable de más de 20.000 compuestos biológicamente activos, los cuales influyen de manera directa en el rendimiento y supervivencia de las plantas hospederas. Las bacterias endófitas son reportadas por producir un número de metabolitos como antibióticos, metabolitos secundarios incluyendo algunos compuestos antitumorales, agentes antiinflamatorios.
