The extracellular polysaccharide produced by the bacterium Rhizobium japonicum has been implicated in the recognition between symbionts which takes place in the association of R. japonicum with soybean. The complete primary structure of the polysaccharide produced by R. japonicum strain 3I1b 138 has been determined by a combination of conventional and unconventional methods. The polymer contains glucose, mannose, and galacturonic acid in the molar ratio of 2:1:1 and contains a varying… CONTINUE READING
