Nodulins: nodule-specific host gene products, their induction and function in root nodule symbiosis

Nodulins: nodule-specific host gene products, their induction and function in root nodule symbiosis

Prokaryotic nitrogen fixation: a model system for the analysis of a biological process: 467-487

A successful interaction between Rhizobium and a legume plant leads to the establishment of intracellular symbiosis between these two organisms inside root nodules. Development of this unique organ requires interactions between a number of host and bacterial genes leading to the creation and support of an environment that allows bacteria to fix nitrogen for the host. The infected cells of the symbiotic zone of root nodules are hypoxic, hyper-osmotic, and may have higher subcellular pH.
