Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Legumes form a symbiotic relationship with rhizobial bacteria, which live in root nodules and fix nitrogen to form ammonia. A key event in the initiation of this symbiotic relationship is the release of Nod factor signals by bacteria. In his Perspective, Cullimore and Dénarié discuss new work published here (Limpens et al.) and elsewhere that identifies the plant receptors recognizing Nod factors.
