Maize is one of the most important crops worldwide and is strongly dependent on arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) fungi, organisms that form a mutualistic association with land plants. In maize, AM symbiosis enhances spike dry weight, spike length, spike circumference, and the dry weight and dimensions of the grain. Notwithstanding its ubiquitous nature, the detailed relationship between AM fungal colonization and plant development is not completely understood. To facilitate a better understanding of… Expand
Omics approaches revealed how arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis enhances yield and resistance to leaf pathogen in wheat
Besides improved mineral nutrition, plants colonised by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi often display increased biomass and higher tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Notwithstanding theExpand
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis: Plant Friend or Foe in the Fight Against Viruses?
TLDR
It is shown that AMF colonization may enhance viral infection, affecting susceptibility, symptomatology and viral replication, possibly related to the improved nutritional status and to the delayed induction of pathogenesis-related proteins in the mycorrhizal plants. Expand
Selected autochthonous rhizobia, applied in combination with AM fungi, improve seed quality of common bean cultivated in reduced fertilization condition
TLDR
Plant inoculation strongly affected seed characteristics, improving bean quality also in conditions of reduced fertilization, according to Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Expand
Understanding Changes in Tomato Cell Walls in Roots and Fruits: The Contribution of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Colonization
TLDR
To improve host nutrition and tolerance/resistance to environmental stresses, AM symbiosis was shown to modulate fruit features, and results allowed for the discernment of cell wall component modifications that were correlated with mycorrhizal colonization. Expand
Seed Metabolism and Pathogen Resistance Enhancement in Pisum sativum During Colonization of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi: An Integrative Metabolomics-Proteomics Approach
TLDR
It is found that AMF symbiosis affects the majority of all tested yield components as well as a reduction of disease severity in both cultivars, and cultivar specific effects of AMf symbiosis that increase understanding of genotype related differences are revealed. Expand
Brevibacillus sp. promotes maize root colonization by Acaulospora tuberculata and the alteration of associated plant protein responses
TLDR
The alteration of some plant defense-related compounds and antioxidative enzyme activities that are associated with an enhancing maize root colonization by AM when co-inoculated with SUT47 are shown. Expand
Tomato responses to Funneliformis mosseae during the early stages of arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis
TLDR
The aim of this work was to assess the type of interaction (mutualistic or parasitic) between the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Funelliformis mosseae and Solanum lycopersicum cv and to state that the fungus behaved as a mutualistic symbiont during the early stages of plant growth. Expand
Seed Biopriming with Salt-Tolerant Endophytic Pseudomonas geniculata-Modulated Biochemical Responses Provide Ecological Fitness in Maize (Zea mays L.) Grown in Saline Sodic Soil
TLDR
The role of P. geniculate MF-84 in induction and bioaccumulation of soluble sugar, proline and natural antioxidants enzymes in maize plant was investigated which lead not only to growth promotion but also provide protection from salt stress in maize. Expand
Paternal arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal status affects DNA methylation in seeds
TLDR
It is shown to the best of the knowledge for the first time, that the AMF status of fathers can affect DNA methylation in seeds and that these changes in DNAmethylation are further dependent on the gender of the mother producing the seeds. Expand
Proteomics provides insights into biological pathways altered by plant growth promoting bacteria and arbuscular mycorrhiza in sorghum grown in marginal soil.
TLDR
Proteomic analysis and protein-protein interaction analysis using STRING suggest that plant-growth-promoting-bacteria alone or in combination with mycorrhiza enhanced radical scavenging system and increased levels of specific proteins thereby shifting the metabolism towards synthesis of carbohydrates resulting in sorghum biomass increase and uptake of nutrients.

Effects of Heavy Metals and Arbuscular Mycorrhiza on the Leaf Proteome of a Selected Poplar Clone: A Time Course Analysis
TLDR
This work demonstrates how importantly the time of sampling affects the proteome responses in perennial plants and underlines the ability of a proteomic approach, targeted on protein identification, to depict changes in a specific pattern of protein expression, while being still far from elucidating the biological function of each protein. Expand
Proteomic analysis of Pteris vittata fronds: Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi differentially modulate protein expression under arsenic contamination
TLDR
Up‐regulation of multiple forms of glyceraldehyde‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglycerate kinase, and enolase, primarily in G. mosseae‐inoculated plants, suggests a central role for glycolytic enzymes in arsenic metabolism. Expand
Maize development and grain quality are differentially affected by mycorrhizal fungi and a growth-promoting pseudomonad in the field
TLDR
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
Root colonisation by the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices alters the quality of strawberry fruits (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) at different nitrogen levels.
TLDR
Nitrogen application modified the effect of mycorrhization on strawberry fruit quality, which suggests that the quality of fruits could be affected by both factors. Expand
Mechanisms underlying beneficial plant-fungus interactions in mycorrhizal symbiosis.
TLDR
Signalling pathways between plants and fungi have now been described and the identification of several novel nutrient transporters has revealed some of the cellular processes that underlie symbiosis. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis is accompanied by local and systemic alterations in gene expression and an increase in disease resistance in the shoots.
TLDR
Experimental evidence supports the prediction that mycorrhizal M. truncatula plants showed increased resistance to a virulent bacterial pathogen, Xanthomonas campestris, and transcriptional changes triggered in Medicago trunCatula roots and shoots might display enhanced disease resistance. Expand

TLDR
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

TLDR
Inoculation with AMF, alone or in combination with the bacterial strain, was the most efficient biotic treatment and the relative intensities of the chromatographic signals were shown to depend on PGPB and AMF. Expand
