Summary

  • Nitrogen fixation requires a strong reducing agent and energy in the form of ATP.
  • Nitrogen  is accomplished with the help of nitrogenfixing microbes, mainly Rhizobium.
  • Most of the processes take place in anaerobic environment.
  • The energy, ATP, required is provided by the respiration of the host cells.
  • Ammonia produced following N2 fixation is incorporated into amino acids as the amino group.
