Arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM) improve mineral nutrient acquisition of most crop plants, increasing biomass, and protecting against pathogens and stresses. Understanding the mechanisms that govern plant-fungus interaction in AM is a prerequisite to explain their beneficial effects. One of the most fascinating traits of AM is the accommodation of the fungus inside living plant cells, whose integrity is maintained by the creation of a specialized symbiotic interface where signals and nutrients are exchanged. The research will investigate the presence of exocytotic markers involved in polar growth and cell division as well as putative receptors for fungal signals in the cells that are hosting AM fungal structures such as intracellular hyphae and arbuscules. The approach will cover in vivo cell imaging, gene expression analyses and protein extractions. Our results are expected to raise interest in the wide field of plant-microbe interactions and developmental and evolutionary cell biology.
