Scholarcy highlights

  • Plants associate with an infinite number of microorganisms that interact with their hosts in a mutualistic or parasitic manner
  • Tree-shaped hyphal structure, formed by arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi in root cortex cells. These structures release mineral nutrients to apoplast between arbuscule and host cell and take up lipids, delivered by the host
  • The term microbiome describes the community of microbes colonizing certain niche including bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi, and viruses or their collective genomes
  • Symbiosis between plants of most legumes and bacteria belonging to the rhizobia or less frequent members of the Fagales, Cucurbitales, and Rosales and actinomycetes
  • The bacteria are hosted in membrane-surrounded compartments in cells of root nodules, which are lateral organs derived from cell division
  • Fusconi A Regulation of root morphogenesis in arbuscular mycorrhizae: what role do fungal exudates, phosphate, sugars and hormones play in lateral root formation?
