dc.description.abstract Tn5-induced mutants of Rhizobium meliloti that require the amino acids isoleucine and valine for growth on minimal medium were studied. In one mutant, 1028, the defect is associated with an inability to induce nodules on alfalfa. The Tn5 mutation in 1028 is located in a chromosomal 5.5-kb EcoRI fragment.- Complementation analysis with cloned DNA indicated that 2.0 kb of DNA from the 5.5-kb EcoRI fragment restored the wild-type phenotype in the Ilv⁻ Nod⁻ mutant. This region was further characterized by DNA sequence analysis and was shown to contain a coding sequence homologous to those for Escherichia coli DJvC and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Ilv5. Genes ilvC and ilv5 code for the enzyme acetohydroxy acid isomeroreductase (isomeroreductase), the second enzyme in the parallel pathways for the biosynthesis of isoleucine and valine. Enzymatic assays confirmed that strain 1028 was a mutant defective in isomeroreductase activity. In addition, it was shown that the ilvC genes of Rhizobium meliloti and E. coli are functionally equivalent. We demonstrated that in ilvC mutant 1028 the common nodulation genes nodABC are not activated by the inducer luteolin. E. coli ilvC complemented both defective properties (Ilv⁻ and Nod⁻) found in mutant 1028. These findings demonstrate that R. meliloti requires an active isomeroreductase enzyme for successful nodulation of alfalfa. en
