Mode of Action

Acetobacter diazotrophicus colonizes the root and lower stem epidermal surface which then uses root tips and lateral root junctions to enter the plant where it is distributed around the plant in the transpiration stream.  The xylem vessels in the dense shoots of mature plants are also a possible site of N2-fixation by diazotrophs as they provide the low pO2 and energy as sucrose necessary for nitrogenase activity.


  • Responsible for N2 fixation associated with the plants.
  • Tolerance to low pH, and high sugar and salt concentrations, lack of nitrate reductase.
  • Nitrogenase activity which tolerates short term exposure to ammonia.
