Abstract

The symbiotic cells of legume nodules house large numbers of nitrogen-fixing, differentiated rhizobia, called bacteroids. In the legume Medicago truncatula, the symbiotic cells provoke terminal differentiation of bacteroids, which have altered membranes and are strongly enlarged due to genome endoreduplication and have lost the capacity for division.
