Localization of GFP tagged Symbiosis-associated Arabinogalactan Peptide 3 (SAP3) under control of its native promoter in a Medicago truncatula root nodule colonized by Sinorhizobium meliloti expressing mCherry. Plant cell walls were stained with calcofluor white. This image was acquired at the BIF using a Zeiss LSM710 confocal laser scanning microscope.
