Derivatives of naringenin have been synthesized with organometalcarbonyl reporting groups for IR spectroscopy attached at C-2, C-3', or C-6, and the products have been tested for the induction of nod gene expression using a Rhizobium leguminosarum strain which contains the Escherichia coli lacZ (β- galactosidase) gene fused to nodABC. Derivatives with an OMe substituent within the reporting group moiety showed residual gene induction activity.
