Investigation of nodulin genes expressed during soybean root nodule development.

Sylvia Gabriele. Gottlob-McHugh
The infection of soybean roots by the soil bacterium Bradyrhizobium japonicum results in the formation of specialized organs on the roots called nodules. Within the nodules, a differentiated form of the bacterium (the bacteroid) reduces atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia. Nodule development involves a complex interaction requiring the coordinated expression of nodule-specific bacterial (bacteroidin) and nodule-specific plant (nodulin) genes. A number of nodulin gene products from soybean have been characterized, but the functional roles of only...
