Achlorophylous and early developmental stages of chorolophylous orchids are highly dependent on carbon and other nutrients provided by mycorrhizal fungi, in a nutritional mode termed mycoheterotrophy. Previous findings have implied that some common properties at least partially underlie the mycorrhizal symbioses of mycoheterotrophic orchids and that of autotrophic arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) plants; however, information about the molecular mechanisms of the relationship between orchids and… Expand
A Transcriptomic Approach Provides Insights on the Mycorrhizal Symbiosis of the Mediterranean Orchid Limodorum abortivum in Nature
The study of orchid mycorrhizal interactions is particularly complex because of the peculiar life cycle of these plants and their diverse trophic strategies. Here, transcriptomics has been applied toExpand
Metabolomic adjustments in the orchid mycorrhizal fungus Tulasnella calospora during symbiosis with Serapias vomeracea.
Novel insights are provided on the mechanisms underlying the orchid mycorrhizal association and intriguing questions are opened on the role of fungal lipids in this symbiosis. Expand
Orchids and their mycorrhizal fungi: an insufficiently explored relationship
A putative model representing the different molecular strategies that OM fungi might employ to establish this association with arbuscular mycorrhiza is proposed and targeted and untargeted metabolomics studies with special attention to each partner’s contribution are encouraged and some technical approaches are proposed.

Unique and common traits in mycorrhizal symbioses
This Review focuses on recent phylogenomic, molecular and cell biology studies to present the current state of knowledge of the origin of mycorrhizal fungi and the evolutionary history of their relationship with land plants. Expand
Gibberellin Promotes Fungal Entry and Colonization during Paris-type Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis in Eustoma grandiflorum.
It is shown that GA has an opposite effect on Paris-type AM symbiosis in E. grandiflorum compared with Arum-type Am symbiosis, which could be explained by the differential regulation of the early colonization stage, where fungal hyphae make contact with and penetrate the epidermis. Expand
Functional Insights into the Roles of Hormones in the Dendrobium officinale-Tulasnella sp. Germinated Seed Symbiotic Association
Dendrobium seed symbiotic germination may be stimulated by the apparent involvement of the OMF in the production of hormones, and relatively low concentrations of endogenous JA, ABA, or SLs might be maintained to promote the growth of the D. officinale-Tulasnella symbiotic protocorm-like body. Expand
Symbiotic and Asymbiotic Germination of Dendrobium officinale (Orchidaceae) Respond Differently to Exogenous Gibberellins
The results demonstrate that GA3 is probably a key signal molecule for crosstalk between the seed germination pathway and mycorrhiza symbiosis during the orchid seed symbiotic germination. Expand
An ancestral signalling pathway is conserved in intracellular symbioses-forming plant lineages
An extensive phylogenomics study based on hundreds of genomes and transcriptomes provides a new interpretation of the evolution of different types of symbiotic associations in land plants, and reveals a conserved ancestral symbiosis pathway. Expand
Progress and Prospects of Mycorrhizal Fungal Diversity in Orchids
An extensive understanding of the diversity and ecological dynamics of orchid-fungal association is provided, which promotes the conservation of resources and the regeneration of rare or endangered orchids and highlights certain shortcomings of current research methodologies. Expand
An ancestral signalling pathway is conserved in plant lineages forming intracellular symbioses
Through analysis of 271 transcriptomes and 122 plant genomes, it is demonstrated that the common symbiosis signalling pathway controlling the association with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and with nitrogen-fixing bacteria specifically co-evolved with intracellular endosymbioses, including ericoid and orchid myCorrhizae in angiosperms and ericoids-like associations of bryophytes.
