Azospirillum VI and Related Microorganisms: Genetics — by Johanna Döbereiner, Vera L. D. Baldani, Veronica M. Reis

By Johanna Döbereiner, Vera L. D. Baldani, Veronica M. Reis (auth.), Istvà n Fendrik, Maddalena del Gallo, Jos Vanderleyden, Miklos de Zamaroczy (eds.)

Azospirillum is a plant development selling rhizobacterium used for inoculation of cereal and forage vegetation. The e-book covers its body structure, ecology, biochemistry, and molecular biology. the main complicated molecular concepts to appreciate the regulatory mechanisms of nitrogen fixation and ammonia assimilation, in addition to the root of phytohormone creation, are integrated. specifically, the identity of novel kinds of promoters, particular regulatory circuits, and new regulatory proteins is defined. New insights within the plant development selling function of the micro organism during the research in their interactions with the plant are provided. additionally mentioned are box purposes, permitting the overview of the physiological and agronomic involvement of Azospirillum inoculations.
