Conservation and divergence of signalling pathways between roots and soil microbes - the Rhizobium -legume symbiosis compared to the development of lateral roots, mycorrhizal interactions and nematode-induced galls

Mathesius, Ulrike


This review compares endophytic symbiotic and pathogenic root-microbe interactions and examines how the development of root structures elicited by various micro-organisms could have evolved by recruitment of existing plant developmental pathways. Plants are exposed to a multitude of soil micro-organisms which affect root development and performance. Their interactions can be of symbiotic and pathogenic nature, both of which can result in the formation of new root structures - how does the plant...[Show more]
