ABSTRACT We report here the complete genome sequence of Mesorhizobium ciceri bv. biserrulae strain WSM1497, the efficient nitrogen-fixing microsymbiont and commercial inoculant in Australia of the forage legume Biserrula pelecinus. The genome consists of 7.2 Mb distributed across a single chromosome (6.67 Mb) and a single plasmid (0.53 Mb). 

Topics from this paper

Evolution of Diverse Effective N2-Fixing Microsymbionts of Cicer arietinum following Horizontal Transfer of the Mesorhizobium ciceri CC1192 Symbiosis Integrative and Conjugative Element
TLDR
The CC1192 genome harbors a 419-kb symbiosis ICE (ICEMcSym 1192) and a 648-kb repABC-type plasmid (pMC1192) carrying putative fix genes, and laboratory conjugation experiments confirmed that ICemcSym1192 is mobile, integrating site specifically within the 3′ end of one of the four Ser--tRNA genes in the R7ANS recipient genome.
Symbiotic Effectiveness, Phylogeny and Genetic Stability of Biserrula pelecinus-nodulating Mesorhizobium sp. isolated from Eritrea and Ethiopia
TLDR
The management of symbiosis island transfer through inactivation of the relaxase gene without affecting the symbiotic phenotype was found to be a viable approach for tackling one of the most intractable problems compromising N2-fixation in agricultural systems.
Rhizobia: from saprophytes to endosymbionts
TLDR
Rhizobia are some of the best-studied plant microbiota, which must exist in soil and compete with other members of the microbiota before infecting legumes and forming N2-fixing bacteroids.
Genomic insight into the origins and evolution of symbiosis genes in Phaseolus vulgaris microsymbionts
TLDR
Comparative genomics demonstrated horizontal gene transfer exclusively at the plasmid level, leading to expanded diversity of bean-nodulating Rhizobium strains and suggested symbiosis with other indigenous legumes and loss of originally symbiotic regions or non-symbionts before the introduction of common bean into China.
Evolutionary persistence of tripartite integrative and conjugative elements.
TLDR
Examination of ICE3s revealed that most symbiosis genes are carried on the large α fragment, and it is proposed the ICE3 structure provides enhanced host range, host stability and resistance to destabilization by tandem insertion of competing integrative elements.
Assembly and transfer of tripartite integrative and conjugative genetic elements
TLDR
The discovery of symbiosis ICEs that exist as three separate chromosomal regions when integrated in their hosts, but through recombination assemble as a single circular ICE for conjugative transfer reveals mechanisms by which integrases dramatically manipulate bacterial genomes to allow cotransfer of disparate chromosome regions.
Delineation of the integrase-attachment and origin-of-transfer regions of the symbiosis island ICEMlSymR7A.
TLDR
This work defines two critical cis-acting regions required for excision and transfer of ICEMlSymR7A and related ICEs.

Complete Genome Sequence of Mesorhizobium ciceri bv. biserrulae Strain WSM1284, an Efficient Nitrogen-Fixing Microsymbiont of the Pasture Legume Biserrula pelecinus
ABSTRACT We report the complete genome sequence of Mesorhizobium ciceri bv. biserrulae strain WSM1284, a nitrogen-fixing microsymbiont of the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus. The genome consists
Complete Genome Sequence of Mesorhizobium ciceri Strain CC1192, an Efficient Nitrogen-Fixing Microsymbiont of Cicer arietinum
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of Mesorhizobium ciceri strain CC1192, an efficient nitrogen-fixing microsymbiont of Cicer arietinum (chickpea), is reported.
Phylogenetic relationships of three bacterial strains isolated from the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L.
TLDR
Three bacterial strains isolated from root nodules of the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L. growing in Morocco, Italy and Greece were studied in order to determine their phylogenetic relationship to the other members of the family Rhizobiaceae.
Mesorhizobium ciceri biovar biserrulae, a novel biovar nodulating the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L.
TLDR
Significant differences were revealed between the Biserrula mesorhizobia and M. ciceri in growth conditions, antibiotic resistance and carbon source utilization, and warrant the proposal of a novel biovar for BiserRula mesOrhizobium cicera biserrulae.
R factor transfer in Rhizobium leguminosarum.

TLDR
R factors of the compatibility class P were transferred between strains of Escherichia coli k12 and Rhizobium leguminosarum and conferred similar levels of antibiotic resistance to those in the corresponding R+ E. coli k 12 hosts, with the exception of carbenicillin resistance which was greatly reduced.
Biserrula pelecinus L.-a legume pasture species with potential for acid, duplex soils which is nodulated by unique root-nodule bacteria
TLDR
It appears that the development of B. pelecinus for industry will be contingent upon the commercialization of its specific rhizobia, which is not nodulated by any of the commercially available species of root-nodule bacteria in use in Australia that the authors evaluated.
In situ lateral transfer of symbiosis islands results in rapid evolution of diverse competitive strains of mesorhizobia suboptimal in symbiotic nitrogen fixation on the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L.
TLDR
This study shows the rapid evolution of competitive, yet suboptimal strains for N(2) fixation on B. pelecinus following the lateral transfer of a symbiosis island from inoculants to other soil bacteria.
Symbiotic relationships and root nodule ultrastructure of the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L.- a new legume in agriculture
TLDR
This study evaluated the symbiotic interactions of four strains of Biserrula root-nodule bacteria with four genotypes of B. pelecinus and found that strains WSM1271, W SM1283 and WSM1497 isolated originally from B.pelecinUS have a specific host range while strain WSM 1284 is promiscuous in its capacity to nodulate with a broad range of related species.
Selecting improved Lotus nodulating rhizobia to expedite the development of new forage species
TLDR
Effective and persistent strains are now available that should allow the un-compromised evaluation of many of the contemporary Lotus species in the field, and will have a strong bearing on which rhizobial strains are progressed to commerce.
Comparative Sequence Analysis of the Symbiosis Island of Mesorhizobium loti Strain R7A
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the R7A island is determined and its deduced genetic complement is compared with that reported for the 611-kb putative symbiosis island of M. loti strain MAFF303099, indicating that the island lacks plasmid replication genes, suggesting that it is a site-specific conjugative transposon.
