The mature root nodules of Phaseolus mungo (L.), a leguminous pulse, contain higher amount of indole acetic acid (IAA) than non-nodulated roots. The tryptophan pool present in the mature nodule and young roots might serve as a precursor for the IAA production. Presence of IAA metabolising enzymes - IAA oxidase and peroxidase - indicate the metabolism of IAA in the nodules and roots. In culture, the symbiont, isolated from the nodules, produced a high amount of IAA, when tryptophan was supplied… CONTINUE READING
