Molecular control of legume nodulation

Legume plants enter into symbiotic relationships with soil bacteria in order to obtain nitrogen to sustain plant growth. The nodulation associated with this is regulated in response to both internal developmental signals via the autoregulation of nodulation (AON) and by environmental signals, such as the availability of soil nitrogen. Reid et al. focus on the conservation of key components between AON and the regulation of other plant developmental processes and argue that these similarities will benefit progress in understanding both nodulation and plant development.
