Nitrogen fixation (nif) genes and large plasmids of Rhizobium japonicum.

Abstract

The location of structural nitrogen-fixation genes was determined for the slow- and fast-growing types of Rhizobium japonicum. Slow-growing R. japonicum strains do not harbor structural nif genes, homologous to nifD and nifH, on large plasmids (100 to 200 megadaltons). In contrast, all fast-growing R. japonicum strains, except PRC194, contain structural nif genes on large plasmids.
