Ink and Vinegar, a Simple Staining Technique for Arbuscular-Mycorrhizal Fungi
ABSTRACT We developed a reliable, inexpensive, and simple method for staining arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungal colonizations in root tissues. Apart from applications in research, this nontoxic,Expand

Flavonoids and strigolactones in root exudates as signals in symbiotic and pathogenic plant-fungus interactions.
Secondary plant compounds are important signals in several symbiotic and pathogenic plant-microbe interactions. The present review is limited to two groups of secondary plant compounds, flavonoidsExpand

Abscisic acid determines arbuscule development and functionality in the tomato arbuscular mycorrhiza.
The role of abscisic acid (ABA) during the establishment of the arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) was studied using ABA sitiens tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) mutants with reduced ABA concentrations.Expand

Nitrate depletion and pH changes induced by the extraradical mycelium of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices grown in monoxenic culture.
The effect of the extraradical mycelium of the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Glomus intraradices Smith & Schenck on nitrate uptake and on the pH of the medium was studied in a monoxenic cultureExpand

Take-all disease is systemically reduced in roots of mycorrhizal barley plants
The systemic effect of root colonization by the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus mosseae on infection of barley by Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici (Ggt) was studied. In split-root systems ofExpand

First indications for the involvement of strigolactones on nodule formation in alfalfa (Medicago sativa)
Strigolactones have recently been suggested to be phytohormones that are present in all plants. Strigolactones are released by roots into the rhizosphere, stimulating the seed germination ofExpand

Flavonoids and arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungi.
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are ancient Zygomycetes forming the most widespread plant-fungus symbiosis. The regulation of this association is still poorly understood in terms of theExpand

Lack of mycorrhizal autoregulation and phytohormonal changes in the supernodulating soybean mutant nts1007
Autoregulatory mechanisms have been reported in the rhizobial and the mycorrhizal symbiosis. Autoregulation means that already existing nodules or an existing root colonization by an arbuscularExpand

Colonization of Transgenic Tobacco Constitutively Expressing Pathogenesis-Related Proteins by the Vesicular-Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungus Glomus mosseae.
We studied the effect of constitutive expression of pathogenesis-related proteins (PRs) in tobacco plants on vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza. Tobacco lines genetically transformed to express variousExpand

Suppression of arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization and nodulation in split-root systems of alfalfa after pre-inoculation and treatment with Nod factors.
Roots of legumes establish symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and nodule-inducing rhizobia. The existing nodules systemically suppress subsequent nodule formation in other parts of theExpand
