Ectomycorrhizas are symbiotic associations between woody plant roots, mainly trees, and fungi that form spontaneously under natural conditions and contribute to host growth.The beneficial effects of ectomycorrhizas are mainly due to the enhanced nutrient acquisition by the host as a result of nutrient uptake by the fungal symbionts (Melin and Nilsson 1958; Harley and Smith 1983). Of the nutrients required for plant growth, the one that is most commonly limiting is nitrogen. The increases in… Expand
Nitrogen Acquisition and Assimilation in Mycorrhizal Symbioses
TLDR
A highly coordinated metabolic interplay involves bidirectional nutrient exchanges, metabolic zonation, and regulation of enzyme activities and metabolite fluxes in fungal and plant cells. Expand
Altered Gene Expression During Ectomycorrhizal Development
TLDR
Because mycorrhiza development involves the formation of specific multicellular structures, it incorporates the main features of developmental processes common in all organisms, i.e., temporal and spatial changes in cellular and tissular differentiation. Expand
Ectomycorrhizas: their role in forest ecosystems under the impact of acidifying pollutants
TLDR
E ectomycorrhizas have the potential to increase the tolerance of trees to acidifying pollutants and to the increased availability in the soil of toxic elements. Expand
Role of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in the Nitrogen Uptake of Plants: Current Knowledge and Research Gaps
TLDR
In this review, current knowledge about nitrogen transport through the fungal hyphae and across the mycorrhizal interface is summarized, and the regulation of these pathways and major research gaps are discussed. Expand
Intraspecific variation in use of different organic nitrogen sources by the ectomycorrhizal fungus Hebeloma cylindrosporum
TLDR
The extent to which intraspecific variation exists within Hebeloma cylindrosporum for the ability to use organic nitrogen, an important functional characteristic of ECM fungi, is revealed. Expand
Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes Within and Between Mycorrhizal Plants
Mycorrhizal fungi are involved in the uptake of nutrients in exchange for C from host plants, and possibly in the transfer of C and nutrients between plants. Ecto-mycorrhizal fungi (EMF) increaseExpand
Ectomycorrhizal fungi enhance nitrogen and phosphorus nutrition of Nothofagus dombeyi under drought conditions by regulating assimilative enzyme activities.
TLDR
It is speculated that GDH is a key enzyme involved in the enhancement of ectomycorrhizal carbon (C) availability by fuelling the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle under conditions of drought-induced carbon deficit. Expand
Physiology of organic nitrogen acquisition by ectomycorrhizal fungi and ectomycorrhizas.
TLDR
One of the main future challenges in the physiology of organic nitrogen acquisition is to determine the nature, the regulation and the location of N-compound transporters at the soil-fungus and fungus-plant interfaces. Expand
Nitrogen Transfer Within and Between Plants Through Common Mycorrhizal Networks (CMNs)
TLDR
Two-way N-transfer warrants further investigation with many species and under field conditions, and the lack of convincing data underlines the need for creative, careful experimental manipulations. Expand
Growth of subtropical ECM fungi with different nitrogen sources using a new floating culture technique
TLDR
Eight species of ectomycorrhizal fungi in the genera Amanita, Gymnoboletus, Lactarius, and Russula were isolated from subtropical plant communities in eastem Australia and the ability of the fungi to use inorganic and organic nitrogen sources was determined. Expand

Interactions of nitrogen and carbon in the physiology of ectomycorrhizae
TLDR
The interactive role of nitrogen and carbon in the physiology of ectomycorrhizae (ECM) is examined and it is shown that nitrogen absorption and accumulation through assimilatory enzymatic processes create a storage pool for nitrogen in the fungus. Expand
7 Enzymology of Nitrogen Assimilation in Mycorrhiza
TLDR
It is becoming evident that the fungal symbiont may be playing an important role in mobilizing resources that are not directly accessible to the host root, as well as isolation and characterization of enzyme activities. Expand

TLDR
Of all parameters examined, isozyme patterns were most consistent within species and differed most between sections. Expand
Carbon and nitrogen metabolism in ectomycorrhizal fungi and ectomycorrhizas.
The literature concerning the metabolism of carbon and nitrogen compounds in ectomycorrhizal associations of trees is reviewed. The absorption and translocation of mineral ions by the mycelia requireExpand
Studies on the Nitrogen Metabolism in Ectomycorrhizae
TLDR
The mycorrhizal fungus possibly metabolizes the host arginine pool ultimately resulting in more efficient protein synthesis in both the partners, suggesting production of diverse proteins. Expand
Regulation of nitrate reductase in the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete, Hebeloma cylindrosporum Romagn., cultured on nitrate or ammonium.
TLDR
The data suggest that the absence of nitrogen or the presence of a nitrogen source, such as ammonium, inappropriate for growth derepresses nitrate reductase in this fungus. Expand
Enzymes of ammonium metabolism in ectendomycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal symbionts of pine
TLDR
The results suggest that the GS pathway for ammonium assimilation is potentially operative in ectomycorrhizal fungi and imply only a minor role for GDH in ammonium Assimilation by the studied ectomyCorrhizAL symbionts of pine. Expand
Expression of glutamate dehydrogenase and aspartate aminotransferase in eucalypt ectomycorrhizas
TLDR
The results suggest that fungal gene expression is moderated by the host plant but also depends on the fungal associate. Expand
Changes in the activity of enzymes involved with primary nitrogen metabolism due to ectomycorrhizal symbiosis on jack pine seedlings
TLDR
While the free amino acid profiles in roots were significantly affected by ECM infection, the profile of free amino acids exported to the stem was the same for all treatments. Expand
THE ROLE OF PROTEINS IN THE NITROGEN NUTRITION OF ECTOMYCORRHIZAL PLANTS
TLDR
It is proposed that the ability of mycorrhizal associations to utilize protein N will lead not only to an increased supply of N to the plant but also to more effective competition with the decomposer population and to an overall tightening of the nitrogen cycle. Expand
