Abstract

Sugar coat: The nitrogen-fixing soil bacterium Bradyrhizobium sp. BTAi1 is coated with a unique lipopolysaccharide that does not induce innate immune responses in its host plant Aeschynomene indica or in different plant families. The chemical nature of the monosaccharide forming the polymer (see picture) is unprecedented in nature, which helps to avoid "harmful" recognition by its symbiotic host.
