The effects of the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) on plant growth and root nodule formation were analyzed in Trifolium repense (white clover) and Lotus japonicus, which form indeterminate and determinate nodules, respectively. In T. repense, although the number of nodules formed after inoculation with Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii strain 4S (wild type) was slightly affected by exogenous ABA, those formed by strain H1(pC4S8), which forms ineffective nodules, were dramatically reduced 28… CONTINUE READING
