Abstract

A kinetic analysis of secretion of lipo-chitin oligosaccharides (LCO) produced by Rhizobium etli (Re) wild-type (wt) strain and derivatives carrying disrupted nodI or nodJ genes was performed. LCO were detected in the growth media of the wt strain as early as 1 h after nod gene induction. In contrast, strains carrying nodI or nodJ mutations secreted less LCO, and accumulated LCO metabolites intracellularly after 4 h of induction. These Re mutants presented a delayed nodulation phenotype and a reduction in the maximum number of nodules formed in Phaseolus vulgaris roots.
