Some requirements of biological nitrogen fixation.


Clues to the mechanism of biological nitrogen fixation have been sought through experiments aimed at defining the substances specifically required by organisms to effect the process. The nitrogen-fixing sequence in bacteria is known to proceed through ammonia (Zelitch et al., 1951; Newton et al., 1953; Wilson and Burris, 1953; Virtanen, 1953). Thus, the… (More)
