Ammonia assimilation by Rhizobium cultures and bacteroids
Amongst anaerobic bacteria, Bacteroids
documented the second case when they performed a prospective investigation of the incidence of Bacteroids
fragilis and Clostridium difficile in tissue of appendectomies using ELISA to detect toxins A and B.
According this study, a strong relationship was also found between prevalent disease and elevated antibody levels to Bacteroids
forsythus among individuals with greater evidence of depression.
More than 90% of them were infected with bacteroids
Within the individual root cells, the bacteria become devoid of a cell wall and become bacteroids
, which develop the nitrogenase enzyme and fix atmospheric nitrogen.
When preparations of nodule tissue were observed under the scanning electron microscope, it was evident that bacteroids
from effective nodules were more visible and abundant inside peribacteroid membranes than those found in tissue preparations from ineffective nodules.
