LysM domains mediate lipochitin–oligosaccharide recognition and Nfr genes extend the symbiotic host range
Legume–Rhizobium symbiosis is an example of selective cell recognition controlled by host/non‐host determinants. Individual bacterial strains have a distinct host range enabling nodulation of aExpand

Molecular mechanisms of kinetochore capture by spindle microtubules
For high-fidelity chromosome segregation, kinetochores must be properly captured by spindle microtubules, but the mechanisms underlying initial kinetochore capture have remained elusive. Here weExpand

Infection and Colonization of Sugar Cane and Other Graminaceous Plants by Endophytic Diazotrophs
Agriculturally important grasses such as sugar cane (Saccharum sp.), rice (Oryza sativa), wheat (Triticum aestivum) sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), maize (Zea mays), Panicum maximum, Brachiaria spp., andExpand

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

A nucleoporin is required for induction of Ca2+ spiking in legume nodule development and essential for rhizobial and fungal symbiosis.
Nuclear-cytoplasmic partitioning and traffic between cytoplasmic and nuclear compartments are fundamental processes in eukaryotic cells. Nuclear pore complexes mediate transport of proteins, RNAs andExpand

Common Features of Environmental and Potentially Beneficial Plant-Associated Burkholderia
The genus Burkholderia comprises more than 60 species isolated from a wide range of niches. Although they have been shown to be diverse and ubiquitously distributed, most studies have thus farExpand

Metal biosorption capability of Cupriavidus taiwanensis and its effects on heavy metal removal by nodulated Mimosa pudica.
A novel metal biosorption system consisting of the symbiotic combination of an indigenous metal-resistant rhizobial strain, Cupriavidus taiwanensis TJ208, and its host plant Mimosa pudica has beenExpand

Endophytic colonization of rice by a diazotrophic strain of Serratia marcescens.
Six closely related N2-fixing bacterial strains were isolated from surface-sterilized roots and stems of four different rice varieties. The strains were identified as Serratia marcescens by 16S rRNAExpand
