Gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric analyses of derivatized culture medium extracts were used to identify the products of flavonoid metabolism by rhizobia. A number of Rhizobium species and biovars degraded their nod gene-inducing flavonoids by mechanisms which originated in a cleavage of the C-ring of the molecule and which yielded conserved A- and B-ring products among the metabolites. In contrast, Pseudomonas putida degraded quercetin via an initial fission in its A-ring, and… CONTINUE READING
