Legumes and soil bacteria called rhizobia have coevolved a facultative nitrogen-fixing symbiosis. Establishment of the symbiosis requires bacterial entry via root hair infection threads and, in parallel, organogenesis of nodules that subsequently are invaded by bacteria. Tight control of nodulation and infection is required to maintain the mutualistic(More)
3′, 5′cAMP signaling in Sinorhizobium meliloti was recently shown to contribute to the autoregulation of legume infection. In planta, three adenylate cyclases CyaD1, CyaD2 and CyaK, synthesizing 3′, 5′cAMP, together with the Crp-like transcriptional regulator Clr and smc02178, a gene of unknown function, are involved in controlling plant infection. Here we(More)
