Effects of hydroxylysine on the growth and morphology of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli.


It was found that both bacteroids and free-living cells of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli were highly susceptible to hydroxylysine (Hyl) and the inhibition of RNA and/or protein synthesis caused by the hydroxyl residue of Hyl appeared to be responsible for the growth inhibition. The size of free-living cells was enlarged by the addition of Hyl and… (More)
