    Ethylene inhibits the establishment of symbiosis between rhizobia and legumes. To examine how and when endogenous ethylene inhibits rhizobial infection and nodulation, we produced transgenic Lotus japonicus carrying the mutated melon ethylene receptor gene Cm-ERS1/H70A that confers ethylene...

    The ability of legume crops to fix atmospheric nitrogen via a symbiotic association with soil rhizobia makes them an essential component of many agricultural systems. Initiation of this symbiosis requires protein phosphorylation-mediated signaling in response to rhizobial signals named Nod...

    Eleven extra-slow-growing strains were isolated from nodules of the relict legume Vavilovia formosa growing in North Ossetia (Caucasus) and Armenia. All isolates formed a single rrs cluster together with the type strain Tardiphaga robiniae LMG 26467, while the sequencing of the 16S-23S rDNA...

    The article reports on the symbiotic relationship between legumes and nitrogen-fixing soil bacteria called rhizobia. The ability of legumes to generate fertiliser from the air is discussed from the perspective that it can be taught to crop plants such as cereals. The cost of feeding the world...

    Cytokinins play important roles in legume–rhizobia symbiosis. Here we report isolation of six genes encoding isopentenyl transferase (IPT) from Lotus japonicus, which catalyze the rate-limiting step of cytokinin biosynthesis. The LjIPT3 gene was found to be up-regulated in infected roots...
