Selected flavonoids that are known as inducers and a suppressor of nodulation (nod) genes of the symbiotic bacterium Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae were tested for their effect on symbiosis formation with garden pea as the host. A solid substrate was omitted from the hydroponic growing system in order to prevent losses of flavonoids due to adsorption and degradation. The presumed interaction of the tested flavonoids with nod genes has been verified for the genetic background of strain… 
Rhizobial nod gene-inducing activity in pea nodulation mutants: dissociation of nodulation and flavonoid response.
TLDR
Monitoring of the response of wild-type plants to inoculation revealed an increase in nod gene-inducing activity (Ini response) starting first day after inoculation, consistent with the regulatory role of plant defence in nodule initiation, which might be mediated directly by isoflavonoids as negative regulators.
The pleiotropic effects of extract containing rhizobial Nod factors on pea growth and yield
TLDR
Increase of nodule and pod numbers and improved growth of roots appear to be amongst the beneficial effects of Nod factor extract on the activation of secondary plant meristems.
Visualization of nodulation gene activity on the early stages ofRhizobium leguminosarum bv.viciae symbiosis
TLDR
Judging from thenod gene expression level and pattern in the rhizoplane, flavonoid response upon inoculation is preserved in both pea mutants, being independent of infection thread and nodule initiation.
Phenolic Acids Induce Nod Factor Production in Lotus japonicus-Mesorhizobium Symbiosis.
TLDR
An LCO detection method based on ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography–tandem-quadrupole mass spectrometry (UPLC-TQMS) is developed and it is proposed that phenolic acids are a novel type of nod gene inducer in L. japonicus–Mesorhizobium symbiosis.
Systemically suppressed isoflavonoids and their stimulating effects on nodulation and mycorrhization in alfalfa split-root systems
TLDR
Exogenous application of formononetin and ononin partially restored nodulation and mycorrhization pointing towards the involvement of these two secondary compounds in the autoregulation of both symbioses.
Effects of uredine and two flavonoids on nodulation and nitrogen fixation of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) under conditions of osmotic stress.
The common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), an important legume crop worldwide and a primary source of dietary protein is reported to forms nitrogen fixing root nodules with a wide diversity of rhizobia
Rhizobium tibeticum activated with a mixture of flavonoids alleviates nickel toxicity in symbiosis with fenugreek (Trigonella foenumgraecum L.)
TLDR
It is revealed that Ni induced deleterious effects on rhizobial growth, nod gene expression, nodulation, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) and glutamine synthetase activities, total flavonoids content and nitrogen fixation, while the inoculation with an activated R. tibeticum significantly improved these values compared with plants inoculated with uninduced R.
The Significance of Flavonoids in the Process of Biological Nitrogen Fixation
TLDR
The importance of gaining an understanding of the molecular basis of endosymbiosis signaling, as well as the potential of and challenges facing modifying flavonoids either quantitatively and/or qualitatively are discussed, along with proposed strategies for both optimizing the process of nodulation and widening the plant species base, which can support nodulation.
Stimulation of nitrogen fixation and trehalose biosynthesis by naringenin (Nar) and arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) in chickpea under salinity stress
TLDR
Complete amelioration of negative effects of salinity were observed with +Nar+AM, thereby suggesting complementation of Nar and AM in improving symbiotic efficiency of chickpea under salt stress.

Flavonoid activation of nodulation genes in Rhizobium reversed by other compounds present in plants
TLDR
The characteristics of several plant-specified compounds that activate the transcription of the pRL1JI nodABCIJ and nodFE genes are described and a novel phenomenon is presented, namely that other, naturally occurring compounds can antagonize this induction.
Strain-Specific Inhibition of nod Gene Induction in Bradyrhizobium japonicum by Flavonoid Compounds
TLDR
Preliminary studies with radiolabeled chrysin and naringenin suggest that the different responses to nod gene inhibitors may be partly due to the degree to which plant flavonoids can be metabolized by each strain.
Flavone limitations to root nodulation and symbiotic nitrogen fixation in alfalfa.
TLDR
Data show that normal levels of flavone nodulation signals in the rhizosphere of HP alfalfa can limit root nodulation, symbiotic N(2) fixation, and seedling growth and suggest that one mechanism for increasing N( 2) fixation can be the genetic enhancement of specific biochemical signals which induce nodulation genes in Rhizobium.
Alfalfa Root Exudates and Compounds which Promote or Inhibit Induction of Rhizobium meliloti Nodulation Genes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that alfalfa exudes inducer of Rhizobium meliloti nodulation genes, and several of the flavonoids tested demonstrate antagonistic activity toward induction by luteolin.
Suppression of nodulation gene expression in bacteroids of Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae
TLDR
The observed switch off of transcription during the development of symbiosis is a general phenomenon and is apparently caused by a yet unknown, negative regulation mechanism.

Rhizobium nodulation gene nodD as a determinant of host specificity
TLDR
It is reported here that the nodD products of the various fast-growing Rhizobium species differ from each other in that they confer different responsiveness, in a species-specific way, to different sets of flavonoids and exudates.
Chemotaxis, induced gene expression and competitiveness in the rhizosphere
TLDR
Findings suggest that microbes entering the rhizosphere environment may utilize minor, non-nutrient components in root exudates as signals to guide their movement towards the root surface and elicit changes in gene expression appropriate to this environment.

Transcriptional and translational fusions of the Escherichia coli lacZ gene to Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii nodulation (nod) genes were used to investigate the effects of pH and of Ca and Al ions on nod gene expression.
