Loci unique to specific rhizobia direct the adjunction of special groups to the core lipo-oligosaccharide Nod factors. Host-specificity of nodulation (Hsn) genes are thus essential for interaction with certain legumes. Rhizobium sp. NGR234, which can nodulate >110 genera of legumes, possesses three hsn loci and secretes a large family of Nod factors carrying specific substituents. Among them are 3-O (or 4-O)- and 6-O-carbamoyl groups, an N-methyl group, and a 2-O-methylfucose residue which may… CONTINUE READING
