From: Biochemical and functional characterization of SpdA, a 2′, 3′cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase from Sinorhizobium meliloti

Figure 2

SpdA is expressed in planta , independently of clr . Expression of a spdA-lacZ reporter gene fusion in S. meliloti 1021 [A-C] and clr mutant [D-F], in infection threads (A, D), young nodules (7 dpi) (B, E) and mature nodules (14 dpi) (C, F) of M. sativa. (G) spdA-lacZ expression was monitored ex planta in S. meliloti 1021 strain after addition of 5 mM 3′, 5′cAMP or water as a negative control. smc02178-lacZ was used as a control.
