Spatial relationships between uninfected and infected cells in root nodules of soybean

  title={Spatial relationships between uninfected and infected cells in root nodules of soybean},
  author={Jeanne M. Lang Selker and Eldon H. Newcomb},
In soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) the uninfected cells of the root nodule are responsible for the final steps in ureide production from recently fixed nitrogen. Stereological methods and an original quantitative method were used to investigate the organization of these cells and their spatial relationships to infected cells in the central region of nodules of soybean inoculated with Rhizobium japonicum strain USDA 3I1B110 and grown with and without nitrogen (as nitrate) in the nutrient medium… CONTINUE READING
