When suspension cultures of actively growing soybean (Glycine max L.) root cells were separated by two or three membrane filters from suspension cultures of the bacteria, a synergetic (cooperative) activation of nitrogenase was observed in the Rhizobium japonicum used in the bacterial side. Either plant cells or plant cell-conditioned medium was needed for this activation to take place. Both acetylene reduction and hydrogen evolution by the activated R. japonicum persisted for several days… CONTINUE READING
