Plant growth depends on the integration of environmental cues, nitrogen fixation and phytohormone-signaling pathways. The growth and development of Gracilaria dura was significantly influenced by the association of bacterial isolates. The putative bud-inducing epiphytic Exiguobacterium homiense and endophytic Bacillus pumilus, B. licheniformis were examined for their ability to fix nitrogen and produce indole-3-acetic acid. These bacterial isolates were identified to the species level by biochemical tests, fatty acid and partial 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The B. pumilus, B. licheniformis and E. homiense produced 445.5, 335 and 184.1 μg mL(-1) indole-3-acetic acid and 12.51, 10.14 and 6.9 mM mL(-1) ammonium respectively as determined with HPLC and spectroscopy. New bud regeneration observed after the addition of total protein of the bacterial isolates suggests that IAA is conjugated with protein. The epi and endophytic bacterial isolates were able to induce 5 and 10 new buds per frond respectively as comparison to control where 1-2 buds were observed. The combination of 25°C and 30‰ showed optimum condition for bud induction in G. dura when incubated with the total protein of B. pumilus. Our finding for the first time revealed that IAA coupled with nitrogen fixation induce and regenerate new buds in G. dura.
