Summary: Mutants of Rhizobium leguminosarum 300 which were unable to utilize one or more organic acids as growth substrates were obtained by Tn5 mutagenesis. Mutant strain MNF3080 was defective in dicarboxylate transport and was unable to grow on succinate. Strain MNF3085 was defective in phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and hence could not carry out gluconeogenesis. This strain did not grow on pyruvate, succinate, glutamate or arabinose but grew on glucose and on glycerol. Strain MNF3075 was… Expand

Properties of double mutants of rhizobium leguminosarum which are defective in the utilization of dicarboxylic acids and sugars
SUMMARY: Rhizobium leguminosarum MNF3201 is a mutant defective in C4 dicarboxylic acid transport (dct). which forms ineffective nodules on pea. The Tn5-induced mutants MNF3041 (ribokinase-negative),Expand
Oxydation of substrates in organic acids utilization negative mutants and the wild typeRhizobium meliloti strain S'14
TLDR
Two mutants defective in succinate utilization were isolated by NTG mutagenesis of the effective wild type Rhizobium meliloti strain S14 and appeared to have an inducible C4-dicarboxylic acid uptake system and a constitutive glucose uptake system. Expand
Mutants of Rhizobium meliloti defective in succinate metabolism
TLDR
It was found that in free-living cells, Pck is required for the synthesis of phosphoenolpyruvate during gluc oneogenesis, and the enzymes of the lower half of the Embden-Meyerhoff-Parnas pathway were absolutely required for gluconeogenesis. Expand
Some properties of carbohydrate and C4-dicarboxylic acid utilization negative mutants ofRhizobium leguminosarum biovarphaseoli strain P121
TLDR
After NTG treatment of the very effective wild type strain P121 ofRhizobium leguminosarum biovarphaseoli, mutants defective in the utilization of sugars or organic acids were obtained and formed ineffective nodules that did not show a significant acetylene reduction activity. Expand
Carbohydrate and organic acid composition of effective and ineffective root nodules of Phaseolus vulgaris
TLDR
A study comparing the physiology of root nodules on Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Expand
Citrate Synthase Mutants of Sinorhizobium meliloti Are Ineffective and Have Altered Cell Surface Polysaccharides
TLDR
High-performance liquid chromatography analyses showed that CSDX1 produced partially succinylated succinoglycan, and the symbiotic defect of a citrate synthase mutant could be due to disruption of the infection process or to the lack of energy generated by the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Expand
Dicarboxylic acid transport in Rhizobium meliloti: isolation of mutants and cloning of dicarboxylic acid transport genes
TLDR
The role of the dicarboxylic acid transport (dct) system in the Rhizobium meliloti-Alfalfa symbiosis was investigated and a common 26.5 Mdal insert was found to complement some of the mutants and restored their effectivenss of plants. Expand
Biochemical and Genetical Analysis of Rhizobium meliloti Mutants Defective in C4-dicarboxylate Transport
SUMMARY: Inhibition studies with free-living cells of Rhizobium meliloti2011 showed that succinate, fumarate and malate are transported via a common transport system. It is an active process that isExpand
Requirement of succinate dehydrogenase activity for symbiotic bacteroid differentiation of Rhizobium meliloti in alfalfa nodules
TLDR
The results showed a requirement of succinate dehydrogenase activity for symbiotic differentiation and maintenance of R. meliloti bacteroids within alfalfa nodules and for succinate-induced cellular pleomorphism in free-living cultures. Expand
The Use of Activities of Carbon Catabolic Enzymes as a Probe for the Carbon Nutrition of Snakebean Nodule Bacteroids
TLDR
The data suggest that the peribacteroid membrane may be relatively impermeable to sugars and so dictate the carbon source(s) available to the bacteroids. Expand

Properties of Tn5-induced Carbohydrate Mutants in Rhizobium meliloti
TLDR
Carohydrate mutants were isolated from Rhizobium meliloti L5-30 using the translocatable drug-resistance element Tn5, and all the mutants were able to nodulate alfalfa plants, but the fructose kinase mutant was unable to fix nitrogen and the l-arabinose mutant showed either late or no nitrogen-fixing ability. Expand
Sugar Metabolism and the Symbiotic Properties of Carbohydrate Mutants of Rhizobium leguminosarum
TLDR
Rhizobium leguminosarum metabolizes sugars via the Entner-Doudoroff and pentose phosphate pathways but does not have a functional Embden-Meyerhof pathway, apparently not essential for bacteroid development or the establishment of effective N2 fixation. Expand
Symbiotic properties of C4-dicarboxylic acid transport mutants of Rhizobium leguminosarum.
TLDR
The data indicate that the presence of a functional C4-dicarboxylic acid transport system is essential for N2 fixation to occur in pea nodules. Expand
Carbohydrate Metabolism in Rhizobium trifolii: Identification and Symbiotic Properties of Mutants
TLDR
All the mutants, including a glk fup double mutant, formed an effective symbiosis on red clover, suggesting that neither glucose, fructose nor sucrose are used by the bacteroids to provide ATP and reductant for nitrogen fixation. Expand
Carbon Utilization by Free-living and Bacteroid Forms of Cowpea Rhizobium Strain NGR234
TLDR
Free-living cells of the fast-growing cowpea Rhizobium NGR234 were able to grow on a variety of carbon substrates at growth rates varying from 2.5 h on glucose or fumarate to 15.6 h on p-hydroxybenzoate, suggesting that the latter substrate is significant in the development of an effective symbiosis. Expand
Fructose Metabolism in Wild-type, Fructokinase-negative and Revertant Strains of Rhizobium leguminosarum
TLDR
Rhizobium leguminosarum accumulates fructose by an active process sensitive to azide, 2,4-dinitrophenol and carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone, but the fructose is not phosphorylated during transport and inside the cell fructose is metabolized via fructose 6-phosphate. Expand
Succinate transport in Rhizobium leguminosarum
TLDR
It is concluded that R. leguminosarum possesses a C4-dicarboxylic acid transport system which is inducible and mediates the active transport of succinate, fumarate, and malate into the cell. Expand
Oxidation of Substrates by Isolated Bacteroids and Free-living Cells of Rhizobium leguminosarum 3841
TLDR
Free-living cells of Rhizobium leguminosarum 3841 have inducible oxidation systems for the catabolism of histidine, malonate, p-hydroxybenzoate, glycerol, mannitol and sorbitol and strain 3841 is able to use a variety of other aromatic substrates as sole carbon source. Expand
C(4)-dicarboxylate transport mutants of Rhizobium trifolii form ineffective nodules on Trifolium repens.
TLDR
The results show that a supply of C(4)-dicarboxylates to bacteroids is essential for nitrogen fixation in clover nodules, however, rhizobia within plant cells must also utilize other carbon sources to support growth and division. Expand
