The rel gene of Rhizobium etli (rel Ret ), the nodulating endosymbiont of the common bean plant, determines the cellular level of the alarmone (p)ppGpp and was previously shown to affect free-living growth and symbiosis. Here, we demonstrate its role in cellular adaptation and survival in response to various stresses. Growth of the R. etli rel Ret mutant… CONTINUE READING
