Pisum sativum L. is known for high seed and protein yields but also for.yield instability. Because legumes utilize two sources of nitrogen (atmospheric N2 fixed in nodules and assimilation of soil mineral N), studies on their nitrogen nutrition is more complex than in other plants. In this work, pea symbiotic mutants (with no nodules at all ([Nod-]), with(More)
The pea mutant line P55 is defective in root nodule formation, and this phenotype is controlled by a single recessive gene. Complementation analysis revealed that the mutation in P55 is allelic to sym19, which has previously been mapped to linkage group I. Detailed mapping revealed that the sym19 and ENOD40 loci are separated by 2.7 cM. We identified four(More)
From a pool of Medicago truncatula mutants—obtained by gamma-irradiation or ethyl methanesulfonate mutagenesis—impaired in symbiosis with the N-fixing bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti, new mutants are described and genetically analysed, and for already reported mutants, complementary data are given on their phenotypic and genetic analysis. Phenotypic data(More)
Several mutants defective in the nodulation process during rhizobial or endomycorrhizal endosymbiosis of pea have been identified previously. We have integrated the map positions of two such nodulation mutations, sym9 and sym10, into the molecular map of pea by applying molecular-marker techniques combined with bulked segregant analysis (BSA). Lines P2 and(More)
(pea) mutants of the wild type cv. Frisson and six supernodulating Medicago truncatula mutants of the wild-type cv. Jemalong line J5 for their ability to form endomycorrhizas. The six mutants of M. truncatula were shown to be allelic mutants of the same gene Mtsym12, whereas distinct genes (sym28 and sym29) are known to determine the supernodulation(More)
