Evolution and Diversity of Sexually-Related Genes in the Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungus Rhizophagus irregularis

Philippe Charron
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are ancient organisms that form symbioses with more than 80% of land plants. Fossil evidence of this partnership dates back 460Ma, when land was first colonized by plants. The mutualistic relationship between host roots and the fungus consists of an exchange of essential nutrients for the proliferation of both organisms, highlighting the importance of the mycorrhizal symbiosis. Despite their extreme longevity, a lack of evidence supporting sexual reproduction has labelled AMF...
