In rhizobial symbiosis with legume plant hosts, the symbiotic tissue in the root nodules of indeterminate type is localized to the basal part of the nodule where the symbiotic zones contain infected cells (IC) interspersed with uninfected cells (UC) that are devoid of rhizobia. Although IC are easily distinguished in nodule sections using standard(More)
Selected flavonoids that are known as inducers and a suppressor of nodulation (nod) genes of the symbiotic bacterium Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae were tested for their effect on symbiosis formation with garden pea as the host. A solid substrate was omitted from the hydroponic growing system in order to prevent losses of flavonoids due to adsorption(More)
A technique was optimized for the in situ detection of nodulation (nod) gene activity in Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae symbiosis with compatible plant hosts Vicia tetrasperma (L.) SCHREB. and Pisum sativum L. The transcription of nodABC-lacZ fusion was visualized as beta-galactosidase (beta-Gal) activity after reaction with the chromogenic substrate(More)
