Properties of the nitrogenase system in cell-free extracts of bacteroids from soybean root nodules.

Abstract

The capacity of excised nodules from soybean plants to fix atmospheric N2 was demonstrated convincingly in 19521 by use of the sensitive '5N technique. Although the specific inhibitory effect of H2 on N2 fixation by nodulated red clover was discovered thirty years ago,2' 3 an understanding of the biochemistry of N2 fixation in symbionts has been delayed as… (More)
