Genetics and Regulation of Nitrogen Fixation in Free-Living by Werner Klipp (Editor), Bernd Masepohl (Editor), John R.

By Werner Klipp (Editor), Bernd Masepohl (Editor), John R. Gallon (Editor), William E. Newton (Editor)

This ebook offers a entire and particular resource of knowledge at the genetic and regulatory features of organic nitrogen fixation in free-living (non-symbiotic) prokaryotes. organic nitrogen fixation is represented in a various variety of microorganisms, between which Klebsiella pneumoniae serves as a paradigm for the genetic research of diazotrophy, that's the facility to develop with N2 as sole nitrogen resource. the quantity makes use of significant complementary techniques to the subject material. The preliminary chapters use an organismic-based strategy via targeting the well-characterized diazotrophic proteobacteria, cyanobacteria, Gram-positive clostridia, and Archea. The later chapters use a comparative process-based procedure and function overviews facing various regulatory facets, electron shipping to nitrogenase, and molybdenum metabolism, around the variety of organisms. every time acceptable, historic points and agricultural and ecological affects were considered. every one bankruptcy includes an in depth checklist of references. This booklet is the self-contained moment quantity of a entire seven-volume sequence. No different to be had paintings presents the up to date and in-depth assurance of this sequence and this quantity. This e-book is meant to function an imperative reference paintings for all scientists operating during this and heavily comparable fields, to help scholars to go into this demanding sector of study, and to supply technological know-how directors easy accessibility to important appropriate details.
