Speciation Abstract Mycorrhizal symbiosis between soil fungi and land plants is one of the most widespread and ecologically important mutualisms on earth. It has long been hypothesized that the Glomeromycotina, the mycorrhizal symbionts of the majority of plants, facilitated colonization of land by plants in the Ordovician. This view was recently challenged by the discovery of mycorrhiza-like associations with Mucoromycotina in several early diverging lineages of land plants. We further found that transitions between different combinations of either or both of Mucoromycotina and Glomeromycotina occur at high rates, and found similar promiscuity among combinations that include either or both of Glomeromycotina and Ascomycota with a nearly fixed association with Basidiomycota. Our results portray an evolutionary scenario of evolution of mycorrhizal symbiosis with a prominent role for Mucoromycotina in the early stages of land plant diversification. Introduction Land plants diverged from aquatic algae in the Neoproterozoic as a lineage that would eventually undergo the ecological transition to terrestrial life 1 , 2. This transition — a major turning point in the history of life on earth — reshaped the global climate and the biosphere through an increase in atmospheric oxygen levels, carbon fixation, and biotic chemical weathering of rocks 3 , 4.
It remains an intriguing open question whether an orthologous strigolactone transporter is expressed in outer cell layers of rice FLRs. Lateral Root Induction by AM Fungi is Regulated at Multiple Levels Numerous studies report root system changes in response to arbuscular mycorrhiza leading to an increased root branching and root system volume reviewed in Hodge et al.
The basis of the observed differences is not clear but could be related to the studied plant species or the varying growth conditions. Diverging AM induced root system changes across different maize or soybean cultivars, grown under the same condition, suggested that at least part of the response is subject to genetic variation Zhu et al. Although not systematically investigated an influence of the fungal genotype on the type and extend of root system remodeling can also be expected Veresoglou et al.
Yano et al. AM inoculation of only one half of a split-root system of peanut and pigeon pea resulted in a higher number of lateral roots in the inoculated as compared to the non-inoculated half. However, systemic inhibitory or stimulatory effects on lateral root proliferation were not examined.
The power of AM colonization over lateral root development was demonstrated in knock-down Lotus japonicus hairy root cultures of the putative transcription factor gene meristem and arbuscular mycorrhiza induced LjMAMI Volpe et al. Here, colonization by AM fungi rescues the reduced lateral root growth phenotype and restores wild-type root system morphology.
However, the most dramatic influence of AM colonization on root system architecture was found in the maize mutant lateral rootless1 lrt1 that lacks embryonic lateral roots Hochholdinger and Feix, Inoculation with AM fungi-induced bushy lateral roots even at elevated phosphate levels Paszkowski and Boller, Root system architectural changes in response to AM colonization are regulated on at least two levels as evidenced by their induction prior to or after establishment of AM colonization Berta et al.
This is in agreement with the observation that the recently identified lipochitooligosaccharide Myc factors Myc-LCOs also induce lateral root formation in M. Pre-symbiotic induction of lateral root formation in arbuscular mycorrhiza. The green pathway hypothesizes phytohormone-like signaling to operate either downstream or independent of common symbiosis signaling in M.
It is intriguing whether this is due to a fundamental genetic difference between monocotyledons and dicotyledons or whether legumes, due to their specific genetic layout, that grants the development of nodules, have incorporated the common SYM pathway into a regulatory network, that directs development of all root accessory organs.
Congruent with the latter hypothesis, the Lotus japonicus mutant hypernodulation aberrant root formation 1 har1 , that hypernodulates and is hypercolonized by AM fungi, constitutively forms supernumerary lateral roots Solaiman et al. Lateral root formation is regulated by auxin in conjunction with other phytohormone signaling pathways Nibau et al.
Impairment of pre-symbiotic lateral root induction in hairy root culture of the auxin-resistant diageotropica tomato mutant suggests that Myc factor-dependent lateral root induction is similarly channeled into the auxin-controlled developmental outcome Hanlon and Coenen, Ectomycorrhizal fungi such as Laccaria bicolor and Tuber melanosporum trigger the production of lateral roots prior to colonization through the stimulation of auxin signaling, likely due to their production and release of auxin and ethylene or other volatile compounds Rupp et al.
Likewise it is possible that also AM fungi produce plant hormones such as auxin and ethylene or other volatile compounds in addition to Myc-LCOs Figure 2 , and this might for example explain SYM pathway-independent lateral root induction in rice, while in nodulating legumes common SYM-mediated lateral root induction might be epistatic to auxin signaling.
Root System Changes in Response to Intra-Radical Colonization Arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization preceding alterations in root system architecture has also been observed, e.
Enhancement of lateral root formation after colonization has been related to nutritional effects. AM fungi deliver phosphate and nitrogen directly into the root cortex where the minerals are taken up by specific plant ion transporters localized in the peri-arbuscular membrane, a plant-derived membrane domain that surrounds the arbuscule branches Harrison et al.
Plants can perceive localized differences in nutrient distribution also within the surrounding environment and respond with lateral root proliferation into phosphate or nitrogen-rich soil pockets Figure 3 ; Drew, ; Linkohr et al.
A nitrate transporter NRT1. Besides nitrate it also facilitates auxin transport away from the lateral root meristem at low nitrogen conditions, leading to reduced lateral root outgrowth and elongation. In a patch of high nitrate concentration auxin transport by NRT1. Thus NRT1. It will be highly interesting to determine if related mechanisms are at play in the regulation of root system architecture by mycorrhizal nutrient uptake.

Keywords: maize, arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis, sulfur, iron homeostasis, nicotianamine synthase, yellow stripe Introduction Iron is an essential micronutrient for plants.
Graminaceous plants follow the Strategy II for iron acquisition from the rhizosphere. Iron homeostasis in maize involves a series of processes, including the biosynthesis of deoxymugineic acid DMA for iron uptake from the rhizosphere and the translocation of iron throughout the plant body toward the sink organs Kobayashi et al.
In this iron uptake pathway, three molecules of S-adenosyl-methionine are combined to form nicotianamine NA which is then used as the precursor for DMA biosynthesis. In addition to its role in iron uptake, NA plays also a dominant role in iron transfer, being used for the intercellular and intracellular Fe transport in all plants' organs, as well as long distance transport through the phloem Kobayashi et al.
The primary precursor of NA is methionine, a sulfur-containing amino acid, so sulfur deprivation has a strong effect on iron homeostasis; as a result, S deficiency causes Fe deprivation responses to the graminaceous plants, which can be inverted when S is provided Astolfi et al. The strong connection between sulfur and iron is typified by the Fe-S clusters, where most of the metabolically active Fe is bound to S.
In chloroplasts, the most abundant Fe-S proteins are ferredoxin, photosystem I and cytochrome b6f complex. This connection between the two nutrients suggests coordination between the metabolisms of S and Fe Forieri et al.
Recent studies revealed the evolutionary relationship and tissue specific expression profiles of ZmNAS genes in maize leading to their grouping into two classes. These NAS genes are important for local iron distribution in leaves and sheaths and play a key role in iron homeostasis and detoxification Mizuno et al. ZmYS1 is a membrane protein and functions as a proton-coupled symporter that mediates iron uptake in maize.
ZmYS1 expression at both the mRNA and protein levels responds rapidly to changes in iron availability, whilst it is not regulated by zinc or copper deficiency Curie et al.
