How is dispersal integrated in life histories: a quantitative analysis using butterflies

As dispersal plays a key role in gene flow among populations, its evolutionary dynamics under environmental changes is particularly important. The...

A switch in Ca2+ spiking signature is concomitant with endosymbiotic microbe entry into cortical root cells of Medicago truncatula

During the initial stages of root colonization by either nitrogen-fixing rhizobia or arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, the microsymbionts traverse...

vignette rhizobium

Structure - function analysis of the extracellular domain of NFP, a putative Nod factor receptor

Legume plants are able to form a root endosymbiosis with some soil bacteria collectively called rhizobia. This interaction between legumes and...

Plant-activated Bacterial Receptor Adenylate Cyclases Modulate Epidermal Infection in the Sinorhizobium meliloti-Medicago Symbiosis

Legumes and soil bacteria called rhizobia have co-evolved a facultative nitrogen-fixing symbiosis. Establishment of the symbiosis requires bacterial...
