Small-peptide signals that control root nodule number, development, and symbiosis

Djordjevic, Michael; Mohd Radzman, Nadiatul; Imin, Nijat

Description

Many legumes have the capacity to enter into a symbiotic association with soil bacteria generically called 'rhizobia' that results in the formation of new lateral organs on roots called nodules within which the rhizobia fix atmospheric nitrogen (N). Up to 200 million tonnes of N per annum is fixed by this association. Therefore, this symbiosis plays an integral role in the N cycle and is exploited in agriculture to support the sustainable fixation of N for cropping and animal production in...[Show more]
