The Ca2+-dependent adhesin which mediates the first step in attachment of bacteria of the family Rhizobiaceae to plant root hair tips was isolated from the surface of Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae cells; its ability to inhibit attachment of R. leguminosarum to pea root hair tips was used as a bioassay. Isolated adhesin was found to be able to… CONTINUE READING
