Academic Journal
The article presents information on a study which focuses on purification and biochemical characterization of a novel protein called nodulin, from root nodules of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). The formation of root nodules is associated with legume-rhizobium symbiosis which also results in induction of specific plant genes, called nodulin genes.

    Plant genes whose expression is induced in legumes by Rhizobium bacteria upon nodulation were initially referred to as nodulins. Several of them play a key role in the establishment of symbiosis. Yet, nodulin-like proteins are also found in non-nodulating plant species such as Arabidopsis, rice,...

    Background: The symbiotic interaction between leguminous plants and rhizobia involves two processes: bacterial infection, resulting in the penetration of bacteria in epidermal and cortical cells, and root nodule organogenesis. Root nodule symbiosis is activated by rhizobial signalling molecules,...

    Symbiosis between legume species and rhizobia results in the sequestration of atmospheric nitrogen into ammonium, and the early mechanisms involved in this symbiosis have become a model for plant-microbe interactions and thus highly amenable for agricultural applications. The working model for...
