LbNrt RNA silencing in the mycorrhizal symbiont Laccaria bicolor reveals a nitrate-independent regulatory role for a eukaryotic NRT2-type nitrate transporter.


Fungal nitrogen metabolism plays a fundamental role in function of mycorrhizal symbiosis and consequently in nutrient cycling of terrestrial ecosystems. Despite its global ecological relevance the information on control and molecular regulation of nitrogen utilization in mycorrhizal fungi is very limited. We have extended the nitrate utilization RNA… (More)
