Metabolism of C4-dicarboxylates and amino acids in soybean nodule bacteroids, and their role in energy supply to nitrogenase

  • Shigeyuki Tajima

Abstract

Overall carbon metabolism in nodules and bacteroids is already well reviewed (3,9,10), and it is accepted now that bacteroid respiration is mainly dependent on C4-dicarboxylate supplied from the host cells. The presence of a dicarboxylic acid carrier and absence of a tricarboxylic acid one on the bacteroid membrane suggests a unique nutrient condition surrounding the symbionts.
