A rice calcium-dependent protein kinase is expressed in cortical root cells during the presymbiotic phase of the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis
- Arbuscules of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi inhabit an acidic compartment within plant roots. Guttenberger, Martin // Planta;Aug2000, Vol. 211 Issue 3, p299
The most widespread type of mycorrhiza is the so-called vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza. In this endomycorrhiza, fungal hyphae penetrate plant cell walls in the root cortex. There they form densely branched arbuscules. Fungus and plant plasma membrane are separated by a common interfacial...
- ESTABLISHMENT OF MYCORRHIZAL SYMBIOSIS IN GENTIANA VERNA. Sykorov�, Zuzana; Rydlov�, Jana; Vos�tka, Miroslav // Folia Geobotanica;Jun2003, Vol. 38 Issue 2, p177
The last lowland locality of Gentiana verna in the Czech Republic is a calcareous grassland near Rovnï¿½ at Strakonice in South Bohemia. This locality was the subject of a recovery programme that included support of the remaining population by micropropagation. The plants were inoculated with...
- Plant sesquiterpenes induce hyphal branching in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Akiyama, Kohki; Matsuzaki, Ken-ichi; Hayashi, Hideo // Nature;6/9/2005, Vol. 435 Issue 7043, p824
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi form mutualistic, symbiotic associations with the roots of more than 80% of land plants. The fungi are incapable of completing their life cycle in the absence of a host root. Their spores can germinate and grow in the absence of a host, but their hyphal growth...
- The effector candidate repertoire of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Rhizophagus clarus. Sędzielewska Toro, Kinga; Brachmann, Andreas // BMC Genomics;2/9/2016, Vol. 17, p1
Background: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) form an ecologically important symbiosis with more than two thirds of studied land plants. Recent studies of plant-pathogen interactions showed that effector proteins play a key role in host colonization by controlling the plant immune system. We...
- KNOWLEDGE ON POPULATION BIOLOGY OF AMF AS A TOOL FOR MYCORRHIZAL TECHNOLOGY:AN INTRODUCTION. Vos�tka, Miroslav; Cassels, Alan C. // Folia Geobotanica;Jun2003, Vol. 38 Issue 2, p111
Focuses on the use of the knowledge on population biology of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in mycorrhizal technology. Information on mycorrhizal symbiosis; Significance of the symbiotic relationship between soil fungi and plant roots; Background on the COST Meeting held in the Czech Republic in...
- Friendly Fungi Make a Comeback. Sullivan, Dan // OG;Sep/Oct2001, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p17
Focuses on the efforts of agronomists to reintroduce mycorrhizae fungi onto farmers' fields and gardens.
- Soil Fungi Critical to Organic Success. Comis, Don // Agricultural Research;May2001, Vol. 49 Issue 5, p20
Focuses on the beneficial soil organisms called mycorrhizal fungi. Description of the mycorrhizal fungi; Production of on-farm mycorrhizal fungi; How host roots communicate with the fungi.
- Inducibility studies with the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus mosseae 3-phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) gene promoter. Harrier, Lucy A.; Paterson, Linda J. // Current Genetics;Sep2002, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p169
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are a multifaceted group of mutualistic symbionts that are common to terrestrial ecosystems. The role of AM fungi within processes related to carbon (C) dynamics of the plantâ€“rootâ€“soil system are of global significance. An understanding of the C...
