A cryptic intracellular green alga in Ginkgo biloba: ribosomal DNA markers reveal worldwide distribution

Abstract

Intracellular symbioses involving eukaryotic microalgae and a variety of heterotrophic protists and invertebrates are widespread, but are unknown in higher plants. Recently, we reported the isolation and molecular identification of a Coccomyxa-like green alga from in vitro cell cultures of Ginkgo biloba L. This alga resides intracellularly in an immature… (More)
