Labeling of carbon pools in Bradyrhizobium japonicum and Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viciae bacteroids following incubation of intact nodules with carbon-14 labeled carbon dioxide



Labeling of carbon pools in Bradyrhizobium japonicum and Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viciae bacteroids following incubation of intact nodules with carbon-14 labeled carbon dioxide



Plant Physiology (Rockville) 100(2): 597-604



The aim of the work reported here was to ascertain that the patterns of labeling seen in isolated bacteroids also occurred in bacteriods in intact nodules and to observe early metabolic events following exposure of intact nodules to 14CO-2. Intact nodules of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr. cv Ripley) inoculated with Bradyrhizobium japonicum USDA 110 and pea (Pisum sativum L. cv Progress 9) inoculated with Rhizobium leguminosarum bv viciae isolate 128C53 were detached and immediately fed 14CO-2 for 1 to 6 min. Bacteroids were purified from these nodules in 5 to 7 min after the feeding period. In the cytosol from both soybean and pea nodules, malate had the highest radioactivity, followed by citrate and aspartate. In peas, asparagine labeling equaled that of aspartate. In B. japonicum bacteroids, malate was the most rapidly labeled compound, and the rate of glutamate labeling was 67% of the rate of malate labeling. Aspartate and alanine were the next most rapidly labeled compounds. R. leguminosarum bacteroids had very low amounts of 14C and, after a 1-min feeding, malate contained 90% of the radioactivity in the organic acid fraction. Only a trace of activity was found in aspartate, whereas the rate of glutamate and alanine labeling approached that of malate after 6 min of feeding. Under the conditions studied, malate was the major form of labeled carbon supplied to both types of bacteroids. These results with intact nodules confirm our earlier results with isolated bacteroids, which showed that a significant proportion of provided labeled substrate, such as malate, is diverted to glutamate. This supports the conclusion that microaerobic conditions in nodules influence carbon metabolism in bacteroids.
