This study focuses on the function of the gene praR that encodes a putative transcription factor in Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS571, a microsymbiont of Sesbania rostrata. The praR gene is a homolog of the phrR gene of Sinorhizobium medicae WSM419, and the praR and phrR homologs are distributed throughout the class Alphaproteobacteria. The growth and(More)
The whole-genome sequence of the endosymbiotic bacterium Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS571, which forms nitrogen-fixing nodules on the stems and roots of Sesbania rostrata, was recently determined. The sizes of the genome and symbiosis island are 5.4 Mb and 86.7 kb, respectively, and these sizes are the smallest among the sequenced rhizobia. In the present(More)
Bacteria have multiple K+ uptake systems. Escherichia coli, for example, has three types of K+ uptake systems, which include the low-K+-inducible KdpFABC system and two constitutive systems, Trk (TrkAG and TrkAH) and Kup. Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS571, a rhizobium that forms nitrogen-fixing nodules on the stems and roots of Sesbania rostrata, also has(More)
