Abstract

In a search for plant genes expressed during early symbiotic interactions between Medicago sativa and Rhizobium meliloti, we have isolated and characterized two alfalfa genes which have strong sequence similarity to members of the Enod12 gene family of Pisum sativum. The M. sativa genes, MsEnod12A and B, encode putative protein products of 8066 Da and 12849 Da, respectively, each with a signal sequence at the N-terminus followed by a repetitive proline-rich region. Based on their expression during the initial period of nodule development, MsEnod12A and B are alfalfa early nodulin genes.
