  • Mesorhizobium huakuii strain LL56 and Mesorhizobium sp. strain LL22, which nodulate Lotus glaber, developed an adaptive acid response during exponential growth upon exposure to sublethal acid conditions. The adaptive acid response was found to be dependent on the sublethal pH and the strain intrinsic acid tolerance: the lowest adaptation pH was 4.0 for strain LL56 and 5.7 for strain LL22, and the lowest pH values tolerated after adaptation were 3.0 and 4.0, respectively. Both complex and… CONTINUE READING
