More Tequila, please…: Organic nitrogen acquisition in Agave tequilana from endophytic bacteria by oxidative nitrogen scavenging mechanism

Redoxoma Highlights:
 • Superoxide and nitric oxide induced nitrosative processes may follow unusual and different dynamic behaviors
 • Visible, not only UV, light may also damage your hair and skin
 • More Tequila, please…: Organic nitrogen acquisition in Agave tequilana from endophytic bacteria by oxidative nitrogen scavenging mechanism
 • A novel oxidative pathway for human SOD1 aggregation is revealed and may contribute to ALS pathology
 • A novel ubiquitin-related marker in oxidative stress response

Historically, it was thought that plants derived all nitrogen (N) nutrition from the inorganic forms of N, NO3– and NH4+. However, it is now known that the principal form of N entering soils that do not receive inorganic fertilizer is organic N derived from microbial breakdown of organic matter, including amino acids, di and tri-peptides, DNA and proteins. Plants form symbiotic associations with endophytic bacteria
