Background Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus (strain ATCC 49037 / DSM 5601 / PAl5) is an aerobic acid-tolerant bacterium isolated from sugarcane roots in Brazil. This organism is endophytic and colonizes internal plant tissues, establishing a symbiotic relationship with its host. This bacterium has been found in sugarcane, coffee, rice, tea, and other plants. The nitrogen-fixation systems of the bacterium provide the plant with essential nitrogenous compounds while the plant provides a protected environment for the bacterium to grow in. Nitrogen-fixation is important for sugarcane production, and this organism can fix nitrogen even in the presence of nitrate (adapted from (EBI Integr8)
