Abstract

An infected root nodule cell may contain several thousand rhizobial symbionts, each enclosed in a membrane envelope, the peribacteroid membrane (PBM). The PBM is derived from the host plasma membrane, but shares properties with the vacuolar membrane and contains several nodule-specific proteins (nodulins) that perform unique functions for symbiosis.
