Rhizobia adopt many different lifestyles including survival in soil, growth in the rhizosphere, attachment to root hairs and infection and growth within legume roots, both in infection threads and in nodules where they fix nitrogen. They are actively involved in extracellular signalling to their host legumes to initiate infection and nodule morphogenesis. Rhizobia also use quorum-sensing gene regulation via N-acyl-homoserine lactone signals and this can enhance their interaction with legumes as… CONTINUE READING
