Transition metal trafficking in biological nitrogen fixation

By Manuel González-Guerrero

Absctract : Biological nitrogen fixation, the conversion of N2 into NH3 by nitrogenase, is essential for the productivity of natural ecosystems. It is also one of the main sustainable alternatives to the overuse of polluting nitrogen fertilizers. At the core of this process are a number of metalloproteins, including nitrogenase itself, that require a steady supply of transition metals (iron, copper, molybdenum, …) to work.

However, transition metal bioavailability in soils is often limited and even more so when nitrogen fixation is carried out by an endosymbiotic interaction such as the legume-rhizobia partnership. Furthermore, the high levels of metalloenzymes required also determine the necessity of dedicated metal delivery systems. In this seminar, I will present our most recent advances in understanding specific metal allocation for biological nitrogen fixation and their implications towards engineering nitrogen fixation in crops.
