Infection process and the interaction of rice roots with rhizobia

Perrine, Francine; Prayitno, Joko; Rolfe, Barry; Weinman, Jeremy; Hocart, Charles


Most rhizobial strains inhibit rice root growth in the presence of calcium or potassium nitrates, but not ammonium nitrate. Certain rhizobial strains, however, such as strain R4, do not inhibit rice growth and can enter rice roots and multiply in the intercellular spaces. By using the green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a visual marker, it was found that Rhizobium became intimately associated with rice seedling roots within 24-48 h. During this initial period it was observed that strain R4 could...[Show more]
