The effect of quorum sensing signals on nodulation of Medicago truncatula
N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) act as quorum sensing signals that regulate cell-density dependent behaviours in many gram-negative bacteria, in particular those important for plant-microbe interactions. AHLs can also be recognised by plants, and this may influence their interactions with bacteria. This thesis tested whether the exposure to AHLs affects the nodule-forming, nitrogen-fixing symbiosis between legume hosts and rhizobia. It used the legume,...[Show more]
