A total of 51 bacterial strains were isolated from root nodules of Scorpiurus muricatus sampled from 6 regions of western Algeria. Strain diversity was assessed by rep-PCR amplification fingerprinting, which grouped the isolates into 28 different clusters. Partial nucleotide sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene and BLAST analysis revealed that root nodules of S. muricatus were colonized by different species close to Rhizobium vignae, Rhizobium radiobacter, Rhizobium leguminosarum, Phyllobacterium…

Utilization of Endophytic Bacteria Isolated from Legume Root Nodules for Plant Growth Promotion
Greenhouse and field experiments that successfully used NNEB to both increase the growth and yield of legumes and to recover degraded soils are described.
Phylogenomic Review of Root Nitrogen-Fixing Symbiont Population Nodulating Northwestern African Wild Legumes
All nodulating flowering plants are more closely related than previously suspected, suggesting that the predisposition to nodulate might have arisen only once, and improved understanding of the relationships between nodulin genes is providing some clues.
Molecular characterization of salt-tolerant bacteria isolated from greenhouse vegetable cultivation soils.
It was presumed that accumulation of salt ions and decreased pH value in the greenhouse soils could increase the osmotic pressure, which directly affected the number of bacteria with salt resistance, but the obtained salt tolerant isolates should be further investigated for their application to sustainable agriculture.
Mecanismos de inducción de rizobios para reducir el estrés por sequía en las leguminosas
The drought effect on the nodulation  and atmospheric nitrogen fixation process is made known, as well as the rhizobia ability to synthesize exopolysaccharides, enzymes, phytohormones, siderophores, osmolytes and solubilize phosphates as induction mechanisms to mitigate drought stress in legumes.
Ureide metabolism in plant-associated bacteria: purine plant-bacteria interactive scenarios under nitrogen deficiency
Given widespread concerns for crop losses due to the drastically changing climate and prevailing agricultural practices, the understanding of the interactive signaling for the purine metabolisms between PAB and plants takes on a major importance, as it may support management decisions necessary to maintain PAB biodiversity and the agricultural services provided by PAB to crops.
A comprehensive synthesis unveils the mysteries of phosphate‐solubilizing microbes
It is shown that at continental to global scales, the populationdensity of PSMs in environmental samples is correlated with total P rather than pH, and positive relationships exist between the population density of soil PSMs and available P, nitrate‐nitrogen and dissolved organic carbon in soil, reflecting functional couplings between PSM and microbes driving biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen and carbon.


Diversity of endophytic bacteria within nodules of the Sphaerophysa salsula in different regions of Loess Plateau in China.
This is the first systematic study on endophytic bacteria associated with S. salsula root nodules and the results provide valuable information about the interactions among the symbiotic bacteria, nonsymbiotic bacteria and their habitats.
Isolation and characterization of plant growth promoting endophytic bacterial isolates from root nodule of Lespedeza sp.
Thirty-nine endophytic bacterial strains were isolated from the nodule of Lespedeza sp. grown in two different locations of South Korea. All strains were checked for their plant growth promoting
Gamma proteobacteria can nodulate legumes of the genus Hedysarum.
No evidence of any rhizobial-like sequence was found even upon amplifying from the bulk of microbial cells obtained from the squashed nodules, suggesting that the exclusive occupants of the nodules formed by the three plants tested are members of the orders Enterobacteriales or Pseudomonadales, the first report of Gammaproteobacteria associated with legume nodules.
Phenotypic and genotypic analysis of rhizobia isolated from pasture legumes native of Sardinia and Asinara Island
RFLP analysis of PCR-amplified 16S–23S rDNA IGS showed that the levels of similarity between rhizobial isolates from Ornithopus, Hedysarum and Scorpiurus, and the type strains of Rhizobium leguminosarum, MesorhZobium loti, M. ciceri, SinorhizOBium meliloti and Bradyrhizobioides were not more than 30%.
Endophytic Occupation of Root Nodules and Roots of Melilotus dentatus by Agrobacterium tumefaciens
This work proved that the Agrobacterium strain CCBAU 81181, which was originally isolated from the root nodules of Onobrychis viciaefolia, and a symbiotic strain of Sinorhizobium melilotiCCBAU 10062 could coinhabit the root nodsules of Melilotus dentatus, and concluded that A. tumefaciens strains could be endophytic bacteria in the roots, stems, androot nodules.
Rhizobium nepotum sp. nov. isolated from tumors on different plant species.
Phyllobacterium endophyticum sp. nov., isolated from nodules of Phaseolus vulgaris.
The results of DNA-DNA hybridization, phenotypic tests and fatty acid analyses confirmed that this strain represents a novel species of the genus Phyllobacterium, for which the name PhyllOBacterium endophyticum sp.
Diverse bacteria isolated from root nodules of wild Vicia species grown in temperate region of China
A strong association was found among the symbiotic gene types and genomic species, indicating the absence of lateral gene transfer, and greatly enlarged the rhizobial spectrum of Vicia species.
Identification of the rhizobial symbiont of Astragalus glombiformis in Eastern Morocco as Mesorhizobium camelthorni
Astragalus gombiformis is a desert symbiotic nitrogen-fixing legume of great nutritional value as fodder for camels and goats. However, there are no data published on the rhizobial bacteria that
