With the original aim of surveying the role of exopolysaccharide (EPS) in Lotus-Mesorhizobium symbiosis, we carried out Tn5 mutagenesis of Mesorhizobium loti and obtained 32 mutants with defects in EPS biosynthesis. One of the mutants, HIA22, formed pseudonodules and failed to fix nitrogen with Lotus japonicus. However, complementation analysis unexpectedly(More)
For effective exploitation of the genome sequence information of Lotus microsymbiont, Mesorhizobium loti MAFF303099, to discover gene functions, we have constructed an ordered and mutually overlapping cosmid library using an IncP broad host-range vector. The library consisted of 480 clones to cover approximately 99.6% of the genome with average insert size(More)
