The main objective of this work was to analyze the effect of boron (B) deficiency on nodule organogenesis. Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants and for the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis development. Boron deficiency has a strong effect on components involved in plant-bacteria molecular and cell interactions during the development of the legume-rhizobia symbiosis. Because nodule organogenesis is driven by rhizobia-legume interactions, the effect of B deficiency on cell cycle regulation during nodule development was studied in Pisum sativum and Medicago sativa plants.
