Characterization and regulation of PiDur3, a permease involved in the acquisition of urea by the ectomycorrhizal fungus Paxillus involutus.


Urea, which is known to be a source of nitrogen for the growth of many organisms, represents an important fertilizer in forest soils. Since most trees form symbiotic associations with ectomycorrhizal fungi, the capacities of these symbionts to take up and assimilate urea would determine the efficiency of urea nitrogen salvaging by plants. We showed that… (More)
