Disease relevance of nodF

  • This sequence is also present upstream of common nodA and species specific nodF genes of other Rhizobium species [1].

High impact information on nodF

  • In contrast, double nodF/nodL mutants were unable to penetrate into legume hosts and to form ITs [2].
  • A conserved nucleotide sequence was found around 200 bp upstream of the translation start of nodF, nodH and nodA [1].
  • The predicted protein products of nodF and nodG show homology with acyl carrier protein and ribitol dehydrogenase, respectively [1].
  • Two of the five nod-boxes detected in the R. galegae genome were carried on a single cosmid clone, pRg30, upstream from the nodABCIJ and nodF genes, whereas the other three nod-boxes were carried on a different cosmid clone, pRg10 [3].
