Bradyrhizobium japonicum is a soil bacterium that forms nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of the agronomically important legume soybean. Microscopic observation of plant roots showed that butanol extract of B. japonicum strain USDA110 cultures induced for nod gene expression elicited root hair deformation, an early event in the nodulation process. The metabolite produced by B. japonicum responsible for root hair deformation activity was purified. Chemical analysis of the compound revealed it… CONTINUE READING
