Gene Expression in Sinorhizobium meliloti Affected by Plant Exudate
Region:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
Abstract:The genes ilvD5, leuC and carA in Sinorhizobium meliloti are induced in the presence of plant exudates; therefore they are thought to be important to the competition process occurring between different strains of Rhizobium, prior to nodulation. IlvD5 functions in arabinose catabolism; leuC functions in leucine synthesis; and carA functions in pyrimidine and arginine synthesis.
