"Leghemoglobin" in context

Leghemoglobin is a type of oxygen-binding protein found mainly in legume (bean plant) root nodules. It helps in the fixing of nitrogen and aids in binding oxygen within the root nodules. It can also be found in arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, a type of symbiotic fungi that provides nutrients to plants. Leghemoglobin grants the capacity, to the root system and the AM fungi, to perform certain activities in harsh environment, for instance areas in which the concentration of oxygen is very low, such as in waterlogged soils.
