Abstract
One of the most studied models in plant-microbe interaction is the symbiosis Rhizobium-legume. This symbiosis is highly specific and depends on several molecular signals produced by both partners. Some of these signals are bacterial proteins named effectors that are translocated into the plant cells by secretion systems similar to contractile nanomachines (injectisomes). The injectosomes puncture and deliver the effectors into the target cell. The two main injectiosomes are the secretion system type III (T3SS) and the secretion system type VI (T6SS). The genome of many rhizobia encodes T3SS and/or T6SS but their role in symbiosis is mostly unknown. The aim of this work is to study the symbiotic relevance of T3SS and T6SS of Bradyrhizobia that nodulate lupins that thrive in alkaline (Lupinus mariae-josephae) and acid soils (L. angustifolius) in the Iberian Peninsula
