Abstract

Acid tolerance is a sought after trait in Sinorhizobium inoculants to enable inoculants to survive and persist in the acidic soils of South Western Australia. The acid tolerance response (ATR) of S. medicae has been determined to be critical for cell adaptation to lethal acid conditions and is triggered only when cells are exposed to mild acidity.
