Challenges to develop nitrogen-fixing cereals by direct nif-gene transfer.
Mar del Plata, Argentina. In Plant Sci, 2014
Expression of active NifH requires the products of nifM, nifH, and possibly nifU and nifS, whereas active NifDK requires the products of nifH, nifD, nifK, nifB, nifE, nifN, and possibly nifU, nifS, nifQ, nifV, nafY, nifW and nifZ.
Absence of cospeciation between the uncultured Frankia microsymbionts and the disjunct actinorhizal Coriaria species.
Tunisia. In Biomed Res Int, 2013
Total DNA extracted from root nodules collected from five species: C. myrtifolia, C. arborea, C. nepalensis, C. japonica, and C. microphylla, growing in the Mediterranean area (Morocco and France), New Zealand, Pakistan, Japan, and Mexico, respectively, was used to amplify glnA gene (glutamine synthetase), dnaA gene (chromosome replication initiator), and the nif DK IGS (intergenic spacer between nifD and nifK genes) in Frankia and the matK gene (chloroplast-encoded maturase K) and the intergenic transcribed spacers (18S rRNA-ITS1-5.8S
The genome of Paenibacillus sabinae T27 provides insight into evolution, organization and functional elucidation of nif and nif-like genes.
Beijing, China. In Bmc Genomics, 2013
The genome of P. sabinae T27 contains fifteen nitrogen fixation (nif) genes, including three nifH, one nifD, one nifK, four nifB, two nifE, two nifN, one nifX and one nifV.
Assembly of nitrogenase MoFe protein.
Irvine, United States. In Biochemistry, 2008
Assembly of nitrogenase MoFe protein is arguably one of the most complex processes in the field of bioinorganic chemistry, requiring, at least, the participation of nifS, nifU, nifB, nifE, nifN, nifV, nifQ, nifZ, nifH, nifD, and nifK gene products.
Activation of extra copies of genes coding for nitrogenase in Rhodopseudomonas capsulata.
In Nature, 1984
Klebsiella pneumoniae contains 15 linked nitrogen fixation (nif) genes, three of which, nifH, nifD and nifK have been sufficiently conserved in evolution that cloned K. pneumoniae nifHDK DNA will hybridize to DNA sequences from every nitrogen-fixing bacterium examined to date, including the purple, non-sulphur bacterium Rhodopseudomonas capsulata, in which one complete nifHDK operon has been mapped.
