 Title    Screening for Mutants of Rhizobium japonicum with Defects in Nitrogen Fixing Ability  
 Abstract    Mutants o f Rhizobium japonicum with reduced ex planta nitrogenase activity could be isolated with high frequency by direct screening of ultra-violet mutagenized bacteria growing as spots on the surface o f an appropriate agar medium permitting derepression of nitrogenase synthesis. Small glass chambers fitted with a serum cap were pushed into the agar around each spot of growth, forming a small enclosed gas space which was made to 10% acetylene, permitting assessment o f nitrogenase activity by the acetylene reduction test. Four mutants were isolated from a total of 305 screened spots. Two mutants had almost no ex planta activity, one o f which had no symbiotic activity despite normal nodulation (ineffective), the other had only somewhat reduced activity symbiotically. Two other mutants with less than half wild-type activity ex planta were normal in symbiosis.
