“RHIZOBIA” на російській мові



Legume roots are known to exude various flavonoid and isoflavonoid molecules that induce expression of nod genes by bacteria in rhizobia .

Closer to the point of attachment to the root, membrane-bound compartments containing rhizobia are released into plant cells where the rhizobia differentiate into bacteroids, the form capable of fixing N 2.

Inoculant contains millions of these rhizobia bacteria and often comes in the form of a powder.

Since these two cover crops are legumes, they form a symbiosis with specialized soil bacteria called rhizobia .

In an exciting paper, Fox describes how estrogen signals between plants and their symbiotic rhizobium soil bacteria can be disrupted by agricultural chemicals.
