Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS 571

Names Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS 571
Accession numbers NC_009937
Background Azorhizobium caulinodans strain ORS571 is a microsymbiont of the water-tolerant tropical legume Sesbania rostrata, forming N2-fixing nodules not only on the roots but also on the stems. It contains nod, nif, and fix genes and so probably initiates nodulation like many of the rhizobia. A.caulinodans ORS571 is able to fix nitrogen in the free-living state, which is not the case for most rhizobia. (EBI Integr8)
