Some strains of Bradyrhizobium japonicum have the ability to catabolize indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). Examination of this catabolism in strain 110 by in vivo experiments has revealed an enzymatic activity catalyzing the degradation of IAA and 5-hydroxy-indole-3-acetic acid. The activity requires addition of the substrates for induction and is oxygen dependent. The highest activity is obtained when the concentration of inducer is 0.2 mM. Spectrophotometric data are consistent with the suggestion… CONTINUE READING
