Percent nucleic acid out of dry weight in root nodule

Range 2 to 11.5 %
Organism Soybean Glycine max
Reference Bergersen FJ. The bacterial component of soybean root nodules changes in respiratory activity, cell dry weight and nucleic acid content with increasing nodule age. J Gen Microbiol. 1958 Oct19(2):312-23. p.319 fig 5dPubMed ID13587897
Method Extracted visually from fig 5d
Comments "While nucleic acid (% dry wt.) varied inversely with dry weight, the nucleic acid/organism remained constant at 200 µg/10^10 organisms during the most active stage of growth."
