Siderophore and organic acid production in root nodule bacteria


Nineteen strains of root nodule bacteria were grown under various iron regimes (0.1, 1.0 and 20 μM added iron) and tested for catechol and hydroxamate siderophore production and the excretion of malate and citrate. The growth response of the strains to iron differed markedly. For 12 strains (Bradyrhizobium strains NC92B and 32H1, B. japonicum USDA110 and… (More)
