Cellular viability is determined by the MTS assay, which measures the reduction of {3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3- carboxymethoxyphenyl)-2-(4-sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium} (MTS) in the presence of phenazine methosulfate (PMS).
8% phenazine methosulfate for 1 h at 37[degrees]C and the absorbance of the medium was measured at 595 nm in a Beckman coulter.
A kinetic colorimetric assay procedure is described for measuring lactate dehydrogenase activity, in which the reduction of NAD is coupled to the reduction of tetrazolium salt, 2-p-iodophenyl-3-p-nitrophenyl-5-phenyl tetrazolium chloride (INT), with phenazine methosulfate serving as an immediate electron carrier.
To identify the phenazine antibiotics from the selected UPMP3 strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and assessment of its antagonistic activity of Ganoderma boninense, three antibiotics phenazine (PHZ), phenazine-l-carboxylic acid (PCA) and pyocyanin (PYO) were extracted from the bacterial fermented broth using benzene and chloroform and detected through High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
fluorescens to suppress soil borne fungal pathogens depends on their ability to produce antibiotic metabolites such as pyoluteorin, pyrrolnitrin, phenazine 1- carboxylic acid, 2, 4 diacetylphloroglucinol, hydrogen cyanide, kanosamine, pyocyanin and viscosinamide.
The reaction was started by adding 100 [micro]L of phenazine methosulphate (PMS) solution (60 mM PMS in 100 mM phosphate buffer, pH 7.
Phenazine oxidoreductase (soluble succinate dehydrogenase - SDH) was measured in terms of the decrease in absorbance due to the reduction in 2,6-dichloroindophenol (DCIP) at 600 nm as reference wavelength ([epsilon] = 19.
