plant biotech- How Rhiobium absorbs N2 from atmosphere?

Postby barathvaj » Thu Feb 09, 2012 1:43 pm

My lecturer taught me the molecular mechanism about how Rhizobium makes interaction with plants and how it converts N2 as Ammonia. My doubt is

How it is done?

Rhizobium is a soil bacteria and it is a anerobic. .It cause Root Nodules under the soil. .

Then,How atmospheric nitrogen is absorbed for N2 fixation?

Plz clear my doubts.

Simply, the soil contains little air as well as water with air gases in it.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
