Effects of high zinc concentration on poplar leaves: A morphological and biochemical study
Abstract Plants growing under zinc excess store it in leaves, the organs in charge with carbon assimilation. Therefore, leaf modifications can help to understand the plant responses to environmentalExpand
Maize development and grain quality are differentially affected by mycorrhizal fungi and a growth-promoting pseudomonad in the field
Overall, results showed that the bacterial strain and the AM fungi promoted maize growth cultivated in field conditions and differentially affected the grain nutritional content. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and plant growth-promoting pseudomonads improve yield, quality and nutritional value of tomato: a field study
The application of soil microorganisms in the field, in a real industrial tomato farm, provided direct information about the application of inocula, allowed the reduction of chemical inputs and positively influenced tomato quality. Expand
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Plant Growth-Promoting Pseudomonads Increases Anthocyanin Concentration in Strawberry Fruits (Fragaria x ananassa var. Selva) in Conditions of Reduced Fertilization
It is shown that inoculation with AM fungi and/or with selected and tested Pseudomonas strains, under conditions of reduced fertilization, increases anthocyanin concentration in the fruits of strawberry. Expand
Mycorrhiza-induced differential response to a yellows disease in tomato
Protective effects induced by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi against a phytoplasma of the Stolbur group have been investigated in tomato by morphometry and flow cytometry and a direct action of the AM fungus is hypothesized. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis affects the grain proteome of Zea mays: a field study
It was found that AM fungi modify the maize seed proteome by up-regulating enzymes involved in energetic metabolism, embryo development, nucleotide metabolism, seed storage and stress responses, which is the first report of the modulation of a plant plant proteome following AM fungal inoculation in the field. Expand
AM fungi and PGP pseudomonads increase flowering, fruit production, and vitamin content in strawberry grown at low nitrogen and phosphorus levels
Results provide further evidence that rhizospheric microorganisms affect fruit crop quality and show that they do so even under conditions of reduced chemical fertilization and can thus be exploited for sustainable agriculture. Expand
Origin and function of tomato bushy stunt virus-induced inclusion bodies: II. Quantitative electron microscope autoradiography and immunogold cytochemistry
Observations indicate that both multivesicular bodies (MVBs) and associated chloroplast invaginations are involved in virus replication. Expand
