SUMMARY Anabaena showed a seasonal difference in nitrogen storage when growing in Cycas revoluta coralloid roots. In winter Anabaena had numerous cyanophycin granules while in summer there were few cyanophycin granules and many degenerate algal cells. Cellular protrusions were present in the developing algal zone of coralloid roots which may facilitate metabolic exchange between the host and phycobiont. By ferric chloride ultrahistochemistry, phenolic deposits were found in the mucilaginous… Expand
THE CYANOBACTERIUM‐ZAMIA SYMBIOSIS: AN ULTRASTRUCTURAL STUDY
TLDR
No distinct subcellular modifications due to a symbiotic mode of life in the absence of light were observed. Expand
SEM observations on cyanobacteria-infected cycad coralloid roots
In Nostoc -infected coralloid roots of the cycads Encephalartos transvenosus Stapf & Burtt Davy and E. paucidentatus Stapf & Burtt Davy the intercellular cyanobacteria are present in a narrowExpand
Characterization of gonidial zone of Cycas revoluta coralloid roots by means of microelectrodes
TLDR
The highest ammonium concentration was in intermedial segments and it could cause the decrease of nitrogenase activity, and calcium concentrations could affect heterocyst differentiation, nitrogen fixation and mucilage composition of coralloid roots. Expand
Ultrastructural Plasticity of Cyanobacteria in Natural Symbioses with Plants
TLDR
Results presented in this chapter suggest that specialized cells including vegetative forms and heterocysts in populations of cyanobacteria adapted to the conditions of life in symbiosis with plants presumably have modified mechanisms of the synthesis and export of these compounds. Expand
Cyanobacteria in symbiosis with cycads.
TLDR
Using detailed molecular technques no genetic variation of the symbiotic cyanobacterial cells was observed within a single coralloid root, which is consistent with infection by a single cyanobiont. Expand
Perspectives on Endosymbiosis in Coralloid Roots: Association of Cycads and Cyanobacteria
TLDR
An overview of relevant areas presently known about this association is provided and putative genes involved in cycad-cyanobacteria symbioses are cited, suggesting future research directions that may prove useful. Expand
Cyanobacteria-eukaryotic plant symbioses.
TLDR
N2-fixing heterocystous cyanobacteria develop in symbiotic association with a small number of eukaryotic plant species belonging to the algae, fungi, liverworts, ferns, gymnosperms and angiosperm and become modified morphologically, physiologically and biochemically. Expand
Structure and physiology of Cycad coralloid roots
Abstract The gonidial zone organization of coralloid roots of Cycas revoluta is reported together with the taxonomy of cyanobiont, the physiology of the association and the significance of nitrogenExpand
Ultrastructural localization of polyphenols in the sieve tubes of Prunus avium L. by ferric chloride
Abstract After treating segments of Prunus avium shoots with ferric chloride, polyphenols were detected in the sieve elements of the phloem by transmission electron microscopy. Dark deposits of thoseExpand
Endophytic cyanobacteria in a 400-million-yr-old land plant: A scenario for the origin of a symbiosis?
TLDR
Rare occurrences of prostrate mycorrhizal axes of the Early Devonian land plant Aglaophyton major that host a filamentous cyanobacterium, which enters the plant through the stomata and colonizes the substomatal chambers and intercellular spaces in the outer cortex are reported. Expand

THE CYANOPHYTE‐HEPATIC SYMBIOSIS I. MORPHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY
TLDR
The Blasia symbiosis grows well and remains established in the pH range 4–8, at low levels of combined nitrogen but not at high levels (100–1000 mg I−1), in the temperature range 10–25°C, and under moist but not waterlogged or desiccated conditions. Expand
THE CYANOPHYTE-HEPATIC SYMBIOSIS II. NITROGEN FIXATION AND THE INTERCHANGE OF NITROGEN AND CARBON
TLDR
Free-living and symbiotic phycobionts of Anthoceros punctatus and Blasia pusilla reduce acetylene and fix 15N2; gametophytes and sporophytes without algae do not; however, Nostoc colonies show a negligible capacity to fix CO2 photosynthetically and autoradiographic studies show a transfer of fixed carbon from Blasia gametic cavities to the algal cavities.
