Legume symbiotic nitrogen fixation by beta-proteobacteria is widespread in nature.
Following the initial discovery of two legume-nodulating Burkholderia strains (L. Moulin, A. Munive, B. Dreyfus, and C. Boivin-Masson, Nature 411:948-950, 2001), we identified as nitrogen-fixingExpand

Legume-nodulating betaproteobacteria: diversity, host range, and future prospects.
Rhizobia form specialized nodules on the roots of legumes (family Fabaceae) and fix nitrogen in exchange for carbon from the host plant. Although the majority of legumes form symbioses with membersExpand

Burkholderia species are ancient symbionts of legumes.
Burkholderia has only recently been recognized as a potential nitrogen-fixing symbiont of legumes, but we find that the origins of symbiosis in Burkholderia are much deeper than previously suspected.Expand

Genome sequence of the beta-rhizobium Cupriavidus taiwanensis and comparative genomics of rhizobia.
We report the first complete genome sequence of a beta-proteobacterial nitrogen-fixing symbiont of legumes, Cupriavidus taiwanensis LMG19424. The genome consists of two chromosomes of size 3.42 MbExpand

Nodulation of Cyclopia spp. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae) by Burkholderia tuberum.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Species of the genus Burkholderia, from the Betaproteobacteria, have been isolated from legume nodules, but so far they have only been shown to form symbioses with species ofExpand

Burkholderia spp. are the most competitive symbionts of Mimosa, particularly under N-limited conditions.
Bacteria isolated from Mimosa nodules in Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Mexico and Puerto Rico were identified as belonging to either the alpha- or beta-proteobacteria. The beta-proteobacterialExpand

Burkholderia phymatum is a highly effective nitrogen-fixing symbiont of Mimosa spp. and fixes nitrogen ex planta.
* The ability of Burkholderia phymatum STM815 to effectively nodulate Mimosa spp., and to fix nitrogen ex planta, was compared with that of the known Mimosa symbiont Cupriavidus taiwanensis LMG19424.Expand

Burkholderia sabiae sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia.
Two rhizobial strains, Br3407(T) and Br3405, were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia, a legume tree native to Brazil. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequenceExpand

Burkholderia diazotrophica sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa spp.
Five strains, JPY461(T), JPY359, JPY389, DPU-3 and STM4206 were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa spp. and their taxonomic positions were investigated using a polyphasicExpand

Nodulation and nitrogen fixation by Mimosa spp. in the Cerrado and Caatinga biomes of Brazil.
*An extensive survey of nodulation in the legume genus Mimosa was undertaken in two major biomes in Brazil, the Cerrado and the Caatinga, in both of which there are high degrees of endemicity of theExpand
