A unique feature of nitrogen-fixing nodules formed by association of species of Rhizobium and Frankia with various legumes and non-legumes is that they contain leghaemoblogin (Lb), an oxygen-carrying myoglobin-like protein1–6. Elucidation of the function of Lb, which is thought to facilitate the flow of oxygen to the nitrogen-fixing bacteroid forms of Rhizobium within infected nodule cells7,8, has been hindered by uncertainty regarding its precise intracellular location9. Several workers have… CONTINUE READING
