  • We have isolated a colonial derivative of Bradyrhizobium japonicum USDA 110 (designated MN-110) that is both mannitol utilizing and N(2) fixing. Derivative MN-110 showed growth on mannitol and glucose similar to that of non-N(2)-fixing, mannitol-utilizing L2-110. Derivative MN-110 showed high constitutive and induced d-mannitol dehydrogenase activity (similar to L2-110) relative to N(2)-fixing, non-mannitol-utilizing I-110. Hybridization to EcoRI and HindIII total DNA digests with cloned USDA… CONTINUE READING
