    Mechanisms of iron- and O2-sensing by the [4Fe-4S] cluster of the global iron regulator RirA

    Ma Teresa Pellicer Martinez et al.
    Molecular details of how the iron–sulfur cluster cofactor of a bacterial global iron regulatory protein simultaneously senses iron and O2 are revealed by mass spectrometry and spectroscopy.

    Epidermal LysM receptor ensures robust symbiotic signalling in Lotus japonicus

    Eiichi Murakami et al.
    Functional analyses provide evidence for a complex Nod factor signalling where NFRe is necessary for maintaining an optimal symbiotic signalling in the susceptible root zone, and initiation of nodule primordia on the expanding root system.

    Spatio-temporal control of mutualism in legumes helps spread symbiotic nitrogen fixation

    Benoit Daubech et al.
    Experiments and mathematical modelling show that rare nitrogen fixing symbionts invade a population dominated by non-fixing bacteria across plant generations, above a threshold of a combination of ecological factors.

    A quantitative hypermorphic CNGC allele confers ectopic calcium flux and impairs cellular development

    David M Chiasson et al.
    A mutant allele encoding a deregulated subunit of an ion channel tetramer revealed a mechanistic connection between protein heteromerization and quantitative genetic behavior.

    A plant chitinase controls cortical infection thread progression and nitrogen-fixing symbiosis

    Anna Malolepszy et al.
    Lotus japonicus chitinase modulates the level of rhizobial Nod factor and thereby enables cortical infection and functional symbiosis in root nodules.

    Abundant toxin-related genes in the genomes of beneficial symbionts from deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels

    Lizbeth Sayavedra et al.
    Beneficial symbiotic bacteria encode an exceptional number of toxin-related genes that are all expressed by the symbionts in the host, supporting their key role in host-microbe interactions.

    Pleiotropic mutations can rapidly evolve to directly benefit self and cooperative partner despite unfavorable conditions

    Samuel Frederick Mock Hart et al.
    Mutations that directly benefit both self and cooperative partner can readily evolve to promote cooperation.

    Spontaneous symbiotic reprogramming of plant roots triggered by receptor-like kinases

    Martina Katharina Ried et al.
    Ectopic expression of Symbiosis Receptor-like Kinase (SYMRK) in roots of the legume Lotus japonicus resulted in spontaneous activation of nodule organogenesis and mycorrhiza-related gene expression in the absence of microbial symbionts or signalling molecules.

    Bacterial symbiont subpopulations have different roles in a deep-sea symbiosis

    Tjorven Hinzke et al.
    Physiological differentiation during symbiosis leads to division of labor between smaller and larger cells in an uncultured bacterial tubeworm symbiont population and results in remarkable metabolic diversity and complexity.

    Spatial self-organization favors heterotypic cooperation over cheating

    Babak Momeni et al.
    Two cooperative populations of yeast cells that cannot distinguish between cooperative partners and cheating intruders can still self-organize into clusters that exclude cheaters.
