description:
Lotus japonicus has been employed for decades as a model legume to study the establishment of binary symbiotic relationships with nitrogen-fixing rhizobia that trigger root nodule organogenesis for bacterial accommodation. Using community profiling of 16S rRNA gene amplicons we reveal that in Lotus distinctive nodule- and root-inhabiting communities are established by parallel rather than consecutive selection of bacteria from the rhizosphere and root compartments. Comparative analyses of WT and symbiotic mutants nfr5, nin and lhk1, identified a previously unsuspected role of the nodulation pathway in the establishment of different bacterial assemblages in the root and rhizosphere. We found that the loss of nitrogen-fixing symbiosis dramatically alters community structure in the latter two compartments, affecting at least 14 bacterial orders. Our findings imply a role of the legume host in selecting a broad taxonomic range of root-associated bacteria that, in addition to rhizobia, likely contribute to plant growth and ecological performance.
