Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
Rhizobium sp. NGR234 is a broad host-range soil bacterium capable of reducing atmospheric nitrogen in symbiosis with a wide range of plants that develop root-nodules of either determinate or indeterminate types. Thus, NGR234 is a model of choice to study the genetic requirements for performing nitrogen fixation in distinct nodule environments. The aims of this project were to characterize the major regulatory networks that control the expression inside the nitrogen-fixing bacteroids of the genes encoded by the 536 kb symbiotic plasmid pNGR234a.
