Nodules of tropical legumes generally export symbiotically fixed nitrogen in the form of ureides that are produced by oxidation of de novo synthesized purines. To investigate the regulation of de novo purine biosynthesis in these nodules, we have isolated cDNA clones encoding 5-aminoimidazole ribonucleotide (AIR) carboxylase and 5-aminoimidazole-4-N… CONTINUE READING
