H. seropedicae is a diazotrophic and endophytic bacterium that associates with economically important grasses promoting plant growth and increasing productivity. To identify genes related to bacterial ability to colonize and promote plant growth wheat seedlings growing hydroponically in Hoagland’s medium were inoculated with H. seropedicae the bacteria and incubated for 3 days. mRNA from the bacteria present in the root surface and in the plant medium were purified, depleted from rRNA and used for RNA-seq profiling. RT-qPCR analyses were conducted to confirm regulation of selected genes. Comparison of RNA profile of bacteria attached to the root and planktonic revealed an extensive metabolic adaptation to the epiphytic life style.
