The compound X, which had previously been found to be accumulated in the soybean nodules formed by infection with wild-type H2-uptake negative Bradyrhizobium japonicum strains, was identified as serinol (2-amino-1,3-propanediol) by means of elementary analysis, infrared spectrometry, 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance, 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance, high-performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. During the process of purification of compound X, it was also elucidated that 3-amino-1,2-propanediol was present in the soybean nodules as a minor component.
