    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.

    Blumenols as shoot markers of root symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

    Ming Wang et al.
    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-induced hydroxy- and carboxyblumenol C glycosides accumulate in plant shoots and allow for facile high-throughput screening for functional plant-AMF associations.

    Lipid transfer from plants to arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi

    Andreas Keymer et al.
    Identification of two arbuscular mycorrhiza-specific lipid biosynthesis mutants and fatty acid transfer experiments reveal that host plant lipids are transferred to symbiotic fungi and needed for their development.

    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.

    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.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into mammalian biology from the wild house mouse Mus musculus

    Megan Phifer-Rixey, Michael W Nachman
    Studies of the house mouse Mus musculus have provided important insights into mammalian biology, and efforts to study wild house mice and to create new inbred strains from wild populations have the potential to increase its usefulness as a model system.
