Host Lineage: Sinorhizobium medicae; Sinorhizobium; Rhizobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Nitrogen-fixing soil bacterium. This species was isolated from Medicago truncatula, where it forms nitrogen-fixing root nodules. Effective nitrogen fixing, aerobic microsymbiont of a diverse range of annual Medicago (medic) species. Has saprophytic competence and acid tolerance properties. Isolated in 1981 from a nodule recovered from the roots of an annual medic (Medicago murex) growing south of Tempio in Sardinia.
