Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus is an N(2)-fixing endophyte isolated from sugarcane. G. diazotrophicus was grown on solid medium at atmospheric partial O(2) pressures (pO(2)) of 10, 20, and 30 kPa for 5 to 6 days. Using a flowthrough gas exchange system, nitrogenase activity and respiration rate were then measured at a range of atmospheric pO(2) (5 to 60(More)
Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus is an endophytic diazotroph of sugarcane which exhibits nitrogenase activity when growing in colonies on solid media. Nitrogenase activity of G. diazotrophicus colonies can adapt to changes in atmospheric partial pressure of oxygen (pO(2)). This paper investigates whether colony structure and the position of G.(More)
