Project description:Paenibacillus polymyxa is an endospore-forming Gram-positive soil bacterium that is well-known for its ability to promote plant growth. Here we report the draft genome sequence of P. polymyxa ATCC 842(T), the type strain of the species P. polymyxa, and the family Paenibacillaceae. The P. polymyxa genome contains a repertoire of biosynthetic genes for antibiotics and hydrolytic enzymes that account for its beneficial effects in the rhizosphere to the host plants it associates with.
Project description:Members of the genus Paenibacillus are known for their production of useful substances, and some species of the genus are recognized to be plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria. Paenibacillus polymyxa TH2H2, isolated from a tomato flower, had antifungal activity. Here, the draft genome sequence of Paenibacillus polymyxa TH2H2 is reported. The 5,983,104-bp genome, with a G+C content of 45.31%, comprised 5,221 protein-coding genes, 64 ribosomal RNA and 100 transfer RNA. Three intact antibiotic biosynthesis gene clusters were identified using antiSMASH. These encoded the antifungal agent fusaricidin and two antibacterial agents, tridecaptin and polymyxin. Sequence data have been deposited in the DDBJ/ENA/GenBank database under the accession number RPDG01000000. The version described in this paper is RPDG00000000.1. The BioProject ID in the GenBank database is PRJNA505713.
Project description:Paenibacillus polymyxa is an agriculturally important plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium. Many Paenibacillus species are known to be engaged in complex bacteria-bacteria and bacteria-host interactions, which in other species were shown to necessitate quorum sensing communication. However, to date, no quorum sensing systems have been described in Paenibacillus Here, we show that the type strain P. polymyxa ATCC 842 encodes at least 16 peptide-based communication systems. Each of these systems is comprised of a pro-peptide that is secreted to the growth medium and processed to generate a mature short peptide. Each peptide has a cognate intracellular receptor of the RRNPP family, and we show that external addition of P. polymyxa communication peptides leads to reprogramming of the transcriptional response. We found that these quorum sensing systems are conserved across hundreds of species belonging to the Paenibacillaceae family, with some species encoding more than 25 different peptide-receptor pairs, representing a record number of quorum sensing systems encoded in a single genome.

This genome sequence provides a genetic basis for a better understanding of the mechanism for the accumulation of highly optically active (R,R)-2,3-butanediol.
Project description:Genome sequence of Paenibacillus polymyxa ND25 isolated from cow rumen is reported for being a potential candidate in hydrolysis of lignocellulosic plant biomass. Draft genome sequence generated 5.73 Mb data containing 4922 putative protein coding genes, of which 140 are annotated for glycoside hydrolases. P. polymyxa ND25 strain comprises diverse lignocellulolytic components, especially 12 cellulase along with 23 hemicellulases and 11 esterases, signifying its potential for lignocellulose hydrolysis. Subsequent enzyme assay exhibited the potential of strain to produce 0.49, 0.24 and 0.44 U/ml U/ml of endoglucanase, exoglucanase and β-glucosidase, respectively, utilizing sugarcane bagasse as the sole carbon source. This study signifies the efficient application of P. polymyxa ND25 for facilitating plant-biomass utilization.

A strain ShX301 has a broad-spectrum antifungal activity against V. dahliae and other plant pathogens and has been used for in vitro experiments for controlling this disease in greenhouse, "Biocontrol potential of Paenibacillus polymyxa against Verticillium dahliae infecting cotton plants" .
Project description:Paenibacillus polymyxa A18 was isolated from termite gut and was identified as a potential cellulase and hemicellulase producer in our previous study. Considering that members belonging to genus Paenibacillus are mostly free-living in soil, we investigated here the essential genetic features that helped P. polymyxa A18 to survive in gut environment. Genome sequencing and analysis identified 4608 coding sequences along with several elements of horizontal gene transfer, insertion sequences, transposases and integrated phages, which add to its genetic diversity. Many genes coding for carbohydrate-active enzymes, including the enzymes responsible for woody biomass hydrolysis in termite gut, were identified in P. polymyxa A18 genome. Further, a series of proteins conferring resistance to 11 antibiotics and responsible for production of 4 antibiotics were also found to be encoded, indicating selective advantage for growth and colonization in the gut environment. To further identify genomic regions unique to this strain, a BLAST-based comparative analysis with the sequenced genomes of 47 members belonging to genus Paenibacillus was carried out. Unique regions coding for nucleic acid modifying enzymes like CRISPR/Cas and Type I Restriction-Modification enzymes were identified in P. polymyxa A18 genome suggesting the presence of defense mechanism to combat viral infections in the gut. In addition, genes responsible for the formation of biofilms, such as Type IV pili and adhesins, which might be assisting P. polymyxa A18 in colonizing the gut were also identified in its genome. In situ colonization experiment further confirmed the ability of P. polymyxa A18 to colonize the gut of termite.
