In the early 1980s we presented evidence indicating that the N2-fixing bacterium, Azotobacter vinelandii, contained at least two nitrogenase systems: the conventional Mo-containing nitrogenase (nitrogenase-1) system; and an alternative nitrogenase system expressed in the absence of Mo.

Nitrogen fixation in A. vinelandii is complicated by the presence of three biochemically and genetically distinct nitrogenase enzymes, each of which is synthesized under different conditionsofmetalsupply(5). Azotobacter vinelandii is a Gram-negative, strictly aerobic and widely distributed free-living soil bacterium that has many interesting features, including the ability to grow on a wide variety of carbohydrates, alcohols and organic acids, alginate production and N 2 fixation. [7] However this is only seen in fast growing culture, whereas cultures grown in synthetic minimal media are not polyploid. 597–603, Smith, B.E., Eady, R.R., Lowe, D.J. The resulting mutant, MV376, produced nitrogenase constitutively in the presence of 15 mM ammonium. Certain mutations in nifL result in the bacterium releasing large quantities of ammonium into the medium, and earlier work suggested that this occurs by a mechanism that does not involve NifA, the activator of nif gene transcription.

It is demonstrated that transport of reducing equivalents to the nitrogenase requires a high energy level of the cytoplasmic membrane. In Azotobacter vinelandii , nitrogen fixation is regulated at the transcriptional level by an unusual two-component system encoded by nifLA . Azotobacter vinelandii, an obligate aerobe, fixes nitrogen via the oxygen-sensitive Mo nitrogenase but is also able to fix nitrogen through the activities of genetically distinct alternative forms of nitrogenase designated the Vnf and Anf systems when Mo is limiting.

The free-living aerobic bacterium Azotobacter vinelandii is remarkable for combining highly aerobic metabolism with nitrogen fixation in a single cell … The latter notion was further supported by the results of Southern blot experiments by Ruvkun and Ausubel (1980) which indicated that some of the structural genes encoding nitrogenases from diverse diazotrophic organisms were highly conserved at the nucleotide sequence level.
