Abstract

The regulation of Rhizobium genes involved in nitrogen metabolism is important for the bacterial developmental process leading to the symbiotic interaction with leguminous plants. We are engaged in a study of the different glutamine synthetases of R.leguminosarum and their regulation, and describe our current results here.
