Cloning of Rhizobium meliloti nodulation genes by direct complementation of Nod− mutants

Nitrogen-fixing root nodules are formed by the multi-step interaction of an endosymbiotic bacterium in the genus Rhizobium and a plant host of the legume family1. Identifying the bacterial and host genes involved in each step of this process is necessary to elucidate the molecular basis of the symbiosis, and is an important prerequisite for improving… CONTINUE READING
