The impacts of oxygen in rhizosphere on the symbiotic nitrogen fixation in real-time was evaluated under various O$$_{2}$$ partial pressure. Soybean nodules were treated with mixed gas containing N$$_{2}$$ labeled with a radioisotope $$^{13}$$N and various concentrations of O$$_{2}$$, and the nitrogen fixation activity in the nodules was visualized by the positron-emitting tracer imaging system (PETIS). The results showed that under normal condition the nitrogen fixation ability of soybean plant was higher compared to that of under the other conditions (0% O$$_{2}$$ and 10% O$$_{2}$$). There was no significant difference in the nitrogen fixation activity between 0% O$$_{2}$$ and 10% O$$_{2}$$.
