Effects of B deficiency on legume nodule organogenesis. Is boron involved in signalling during cell cycle regulation?


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.
