  • Nod factor-treated Medicago truncatula roots and seeds show an increased number of nodules when inoculated with a limiting population of Sinorhizobium meliloti*This paper is dedicated to the late Graciela Labourdette. Macchiavelli, Raúl E.; Brelles-Mariño, Graciela // Journal of Experimental Botany;Dec2004, Vol. 55 Issue 408, p2635 

    Medicago truncatula is a model legume plant that interacts symbiotically with Sinorhizobium meliloti, the alfalfa symbiont. This process involves a molecular dialogue between the bacterium and the plant. Legume roots exude flavonoids that induce the expression of a set of rhizobial genes, the...

    Plant secondary metabolites play an important role in constitutive and inducible direct defense of plants against their natural enemies. While induction of defense by aboveground pathogens and herbivores is well-studied, induction by belowground organisms is less explored. Here, we examine...
