Rhizobium leguminosarum strain RBL5523 is able to form nodules on pea, but these nodules are ineffective for nitrogen fixation. The impairment in nitrogen fixation appears to be caused by a defective infection of the host plant and is host specific for pea. A Tn5 mutant of this strain, RBL5787, is able to form effective nodules on pea. We have sequenced a 33-kb region around the phage-transductable Tn5 insertion. The Tn5 insertion was localized to the 10th gene of a putative operon of 14 genes… CONTINUE READING
