The review sums up the long experience of the authors and other researchers in studying the genetic system of garden pea (Pisum sativum L.), which controls the development of nitrogen-fixing symbiosis and arbuscular mycorrhiza. A justified phenotypic classification of pea mutants is presented. Progress in identifying and cloning symbiotic genes is(More)
The large size and complexity of the garden pea (Pisum sativum L.) genome hamper its sequencing and the discovery of pea gene resources. Although transcriptome sequencing provides extensive information about expressed genes, some tissue-specific transcripts can only be identified from particular organs under appropriate conditions. In this study, we(More)
In the present work, the potential for the enhancement of the adaptive capacity of microbe–plant systems (MPSs) through the integration of the symbiosis partners’ genomes is considered on the example of different types of symbiotic relationships. The accumulated data on the genetic control of interactions for both the plant and microbe, which are discussed(More)
The study of the ethylene status of the pea mutant SGEcrt, which is characterized by a modified morphology of the root system (whose development depends considerably on physical and mechanical environmental conditions), was carried out. The dependence of the manifestation of the mutant root system phenotype on the plant’s ethylene status was confirmed. It(More)
Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) development in five non-nodulating pea (Pisum sativum L.) mutants (sym7, sym11, sym14, sym34, sym38) grown in nurse pots was analyzed at the early stages of colonization by Rhizophagus irregularis. Abundance of external mycelium attached to the root surface and parameters of internal fungal colonization, i.e. intensity of(More)
