Query: NC_009620:1531000 Sinorhizobium medicae WSM419 plasmid pSMED01, complete sequence 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.

General Information: This organism, much like other Rhizobia, forms a symbiotic relationship with a leguminous plant, such as soybean, cowpea or pigeon pea. Expression of nodulation genes results in production of a nodulation signal which the plant cell recognizes inducing root nodule formation. The plant cell provides carbon compounds for the bacterium to grow on.
