Rhizobium plasmids are involved in the inhibition or stimulation of rice growth and development

Perrine, Francine; Prayitno, Joko; Weinman, Jeremy; Dazzo, Frank B; Rolfe, Barry


We examined growth responses of rice seedlings (Oryza sativa L. cv. Pelde) to specific Rhizobium strains and their mutants, to investigate the molecular basis of colonization and the stimulation or inhibition of rice growth and development by rhizobia. Inoculation experiments with rice seedlings showed that specific Rhizobium isolates of these rice-associated and legume-associated rhizobia could either promote, inhibit, or have no influence on rice plant growth. There are genes on certain...[Show more]
