Abstract

See full text

Peptide fragments of CLAVATA3/ESR-related (CLE) proteins of soybean are provided which are activators of autoregulation of nodulation in soybean. CLE30 and CLE80 peptide fragments may act systemically while CLE60 peptides may act locally in the plant root. CLE30 and CLE80 are normally induced in response to Rhizobium inoculation of the plant root, while CLE60 acts as a nitrate or ammonium sensor. Also provided are interfering mutant CLE peptides and proteins, encoding nucleic acids and constructs for genetic modification of leguminous plants as a means for control of NARK-dependent nodulation and/or nitrogen fixation, particularly with regard to major leguminous crop plants such as soybean and common bean.
