The production of species-specific highly unsaturated fatty Acyl-containing LCOs from Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii is stringently regulated by nodD and involves the nodRL Genes
A proportion of the Nod factors of some Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii strains is characterized by the presence of highly umsaturated fatty acyl chains containing trans double bonds in conjugation with the carbonyl group of the glycan oligosaccharide backbone. These fatty acyl chains are C 18:3, C20:3, C18:4, or C20:4 and have UV-absorption maxima at 303 and 330 nm. These Nod factors are presumed to be important for host-specific nodulation on clover species. However, in wild-type R....[Show more]
