Abstract

A gram-negative bacterium GXGL-4A was originally isolated from maize roots. It displayed nitrogen-fixing (NF) ability under nitrogen-free culture condition, and had a significant promotion effect on cucumber growth in the pot inoculation test. The preliminary physiological and biochemical traits of GXGL-4A were characterized. Furthermore, a phylogenetic tree was constructed based on 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences of genetically related species. To determine the taxonomic status of GXGL-4A and further utilize its nitrogen-fixing potential, genome sequence was obtained using PacBio RS II technology. The analyses of average nucleotide identity based on BLAST+ (ANIb) and correlation indexes of tetra-nucleotide signatures (Tetra) showed that the NF isolate GXGL-4A is closely related to the Kosakonia radicincitans type strain DSM 16656. Therefore, the isolate GXGL-4A was eventually classified into the species of Kosakonia radicincitans and designated K. radicincitans GXGL-4A. A high consistency in composition and gene arrangement of nitrogen-fixing gene cluster I (nif cluster I) was found between K. radicincitans GXGL-4A and other Kosakonia NF strains. The mutants tagged with green fluorescence protein (GFP) were obtained by transposon Tn5 mutagenesis, and then, the colonization of gfp-marked K. radicincitans GXGL-4A cells on cucumber seedling root were observed under fluorescence microscopy. The preferential sites of the labeled GXGL-4A cell population were the lateral root junctions, the differentiation zone, and the elongation zone. All these results should benefit for the deep exploration of nitrogen fixation mechanism of K. radicincitans GXGL-4A and will definitely facilitate the genetic modification process of this NF bacterium in sustainable agriculture.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 June 2018.
All research outputs
#11,588,651
of 13,044,081 outputs
Outputs from Folia Microbiologica
#435
of 507 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#234,598
of 270,482 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Folia Microbiologica
#11
of 18 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,044,081 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 507 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,482 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 18 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
