Host and Rhizobium contributions to the physiology of legume nodules

Host and Rhizobium contributions to the physiology of legume nodules

Nitrogen fixation Volume 2: symbiotic associations and cyanobacteria: 3-31

The following aspects of the legume nodule symbiosis are reviewed: the biology of leghaemoglobin; the control of nitrogenase production and activity in Rhizobium, both free-living and symbiotic, and its relation to the enzymes of ammonia assimilation; the evidence concerning DNA and RNA contents and stability in nodule bacteroids and their implications for bacteroid viability; the consequences of H2 evolution and uptake by nodule bacteroids; and the evidence regarding assimilation of ammonia into amino acids in the bacteroid and plant fractions of nodules.
