Legume symbiotic nitrogen fixation by beta-proteobacteria is widespread in nature.
Following the initial discovery of two legume-nodulating Burkholderia strains (L. Moulin, A. Munive, B. Dreyfus, and C. Boivin-Masson, Nature 411:948-950, 2001), we identified as nitrogen-fixingExpand

Metal biosorption capability of Cupriavidus taiwanensis and its effects on heavy metal removal by nodulated Mimosa pudica.
A novel metal biosorption system consisting of the symbiotic combination of an indigenous metal-resistant rhizobial strain, Cupriavidus taiwanensis TJ208, and its host plant Mimosa pudica has beenExpand

Burkholderia mimosarum sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa spp. from Taiwan and South America.
Fourteen strains were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of plants of the genus Mimosa growing in Taiwan, Brazil and Venezuela. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities,Expand

Proof that Burkholderia Strains Form Effective Symbioses with Legumes: a Study of Novel Mimosa-Nodulating Strains from South America
ABSTRACT Twenty Mimosa-nodulating bacterial strains from Brazil and Venezuela, together with eight reference Mimosa-nodulating rhizobial strains and two other β-rhizobial strains, were examined byExpand

Burkholderia nodosa sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of the woody Brazilian legumes Mimosa bimucronata and Mimosa scabrella.
Three strains, Br3437(T), Br3461 and Br3470, were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa scabrella (Br3437(T)) and Mimosa bimucronata (Br3461, Br3470), both of which are woodyExpand

Burkholderia sabiae sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia.
Two rhizobial strains, Br3407(T) and Br3405, were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia, a legume tree native to Brazil. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequenceExpand

Nodulation of Mimosa spp. by the beta-proteobacterium Ralstonia taiwanensis.
Several beta-proteobacteria have been isolated from legume root nodules and some of these are thought to be capable of nodulating and fixing N2. However, in no case has there been detailed studiesExpand
