Prof Hong Liao, Director of the Root Biology Center at Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Fuzhou, China, has now established that GmPT7 is in fact a wide affinity phosphate transporter and is localised in the symbiosome membrane of root nodules. Moreover, it is essentially required for efficient nitrogen fixation and thus has a significant impact on crop yield.
