Abstract

SILVA, Gildo Almeida da  and  ALMEIDA, Erik Amazonas de. Production of yellow-green fluorescent pigment by Pseudomonas fluorescens. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2006, vol.49, n.3, pp. 411-419. ISSN 1516-8913.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132006000400009.

A medium was prepared from brewery waste yeast with and without mineral salts to study growth and yellow-green fluorescent pigment production (YGFP) by Pseudomonas fluorescens. The King's medium used for detection of siderophore production were expressively weaker inductors of YGFP formation when compared to FYE medium. Although FYE and CYE could be used for growth of P. fluorescens, only FYE was an attractive medium for detection of YGFP strain producers.

Keywords : Pseudomonas fluorescens; siderophore; yeast extract; yellow-green fluorescent pigment.
