Abstract
Symbiotic nitrogen fixation in carried out in legume nodules require relatively large amounts of transition metals (iron, copper, molybdenum,?) as cofactors of some of the key enzymes involved in this process (González-Guerrero et al., 2014). These metals are provided by the host plant through the vasculature, released in the apoplast of the nodules (Rodríguez-Haas et al., 2013). There, a number of plasma membrane metal transporters must introduce these elements into rhizobiainfected nodule cells, to be used in the synthesis of essential metalloenzymes. Uncovering the identity of these transporters is critical towards improving nitrogen fixation rates in soils with low metal bioavailability and towards engineering nitrogen fixation capabilities in non-legumes.
