The Legume Nodule Microbiome: A Source of Plant Growth-Promoting Bacteria
Legume nodules harbour two types of bacteria, the rhizobia, responsible for their formation, and other endophytic bacteria whose role in the nodule is still poorly known. These bacteria constituteExpand

The high diversity of Lotus corniculatus endosymbionts in soils of northwest Spain
The diversity of rhizobia that establish symbiosis with Lotus corniculatus has scarcely been studied. Several species of Mesorhizobium are endosymbionts of this legume, including Mesorhizobium loti,Expand

A ClpB chaperone knockout mutant of Mesorhizobium ciceri shows a delay in the root nodulation of chickpea plants.
Several molecular chaperones are known to be involved in bacteria stress response. To investigate the role of chaperone ClpB in rhizobia stress tolerance as well as in the rhizobia-plant symbiosisExpand

On the bright side of a forest pest-the metabolic potential of bark beetles' bacterial associates.
Bark beetles reproduce and overwinter under the bark of trees, and are associated with bacteria that may influence the fitness of their hosts. As regard the aim of this study was to test theExpand

Genome Analysis of Endobacterium cerealis, a Novel Genus and Species Isolated from Zea mays Roots in North Spain
In the present work, we analyse the genomic and phenotypic characteristics of a strain named RZME27T isolated from roots of a Zea mays plant grown in Spain. The phylogenetic analyses of 16S rRNA geneExpand
