Ectomycorrhiza development alters gene expression in the fungal and plant symbionts. The identification of a large number of genes expressed exclusively or predominantly in the symbiosis will contribute greatly to the understanding of the development of the ectomycorrhizal symbiosis. We have constructed a cDNA library of 4-day-old Eucalyptus(More)
Specific cell-cell and cell-substrate interactions direct the growth of ectomycorrhizal fungi to their host root targets. These elaborate mechanisms lead to the differentiation of distinct multihyphal structures, the mantle, and the Hartig net. In the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Pisolithus tinctorius, the use of two-dimensional gel electrophoresis,(More)
Development of the ectomycorrhizal symbiosis leads to the aggregation of fungal hyphae to form the mantle. To identify cell surface proteins involved in this developmental step, changes in the biosynthesis of fungal cell wall proteins were examined in Eucalyptus globulus-Pisolithus tinctorius ectomycorrhizas by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel(More)
The prediction of coding sequences has received a lot of attention during the last decade. We can distinguish two kinds of methods, those that rely on training with sets of example and counter-example sequences, and those that exploit the intrinsic properties of the DNA sequences to be analyzed. The former are generally more powerful but their domains of(More)
Hydrophobins are fungal cell wall proteins which play a crucial role in cell adhesion and aggregative processes. We have identified a new hydrophobin cDNA (hydPt-3) in the symbiotic mycelium of Pisolithus tinctorius (putative P. albus) during the formation of ectomycorrhizae around eucalypt roots. This sequence is highly divergent from two other previously(More)
