We have identified the three genes pssCDE in Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii TA1. Even though they were almost identical to earlier identified pssCDE genes of R. leguminosarum, they differed in gene lengths and gene overlaps. The predicted gene products of pssCDE genes shared significant homology to prokaryotic glycosyl transferases involved in(More)
An ability to form symbiotic associations with rhizobia and to utilize atmospheric nitrogen makes legumes ecologically successful. High iron content in legume grains, partially relocated from root nodules, is another-nutritional-advantage of this group of plants. The ferritin complex is the major cell iron storage and detoxification unit and has been(More)
Mesorhizobium loti NZP2213.1 mutant obtained after random Tn5 mutagenesis of M. loti NZP2213 was inefficient in nitrogen fixation on Lotus corniculatus. The transposon insertion was located within an ORF with a sequence similarity to a putative glycosyl transferase from Caulobacter crescentus. The results of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel(More)
The prsD, prsE and orf3 genes of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii strain TA1 encode the proteins which are significantly related to the family of bacterial ABC transporters type I secretion systems. The prsD:Km(r) mutant of strain TA1 induced non-nitrogen-fixing nodules on Trifolium pratense. Microscopic analysis of the nodules induced by prsD mutant(More)
