The Potential Roles of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Soil Health and Conservation

Karuna Sharma, Samta Gupta, Sarda D. Thokchom, Rupam Kapoor
2021 International Journal of Plant and Environment  
Soil is an indispensable resource of the terrestrial ecosystem that provides manifold ecosystem services. Soil functions include regulation of nutrient cycle aided by armies of decomposers present in the soil, anchorage of plants and facilitation of their growth, sustenance of water quality, and regulation of water filtration, air quality, and temperature. Soil health is tightly correlated with sustainable agriculture, owing to the multitudinous microflora and fauna residing in the soil whose

Maintenance of soil structure and quality is, thus, crucial for facilitating rapid plant growth so that the lag between food production and exponential population growth can be bridled. Regarding this, a major group of soil-dwelling fungus, i.e., Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (AMF), regulate soil quality and ecological interactions operating therein. This review pays attention to the AMF-secreted miracle glycoprotein −"glomalin" that considerably influences soil dynamics. The major takeaway is that mycorrhizal association in the rhizosphere improves soil quality by regulating soil aggregation, tilth and fertility, and enriching soil organic carbon pool. Besides, mycorrhiza-mediated amelioration of contaminated soil, which reflects a prominent role of AMF in ecosystem functioning, is also discussed. Along these lines, further studies should target the functional ecology of AMF in agro-ecosystems, and bioprospecting of more AMF strains should be done to completely harness their potential in biocontrol, bioremediation, and soil conservation.

A Botrytis cinerea KLP-7 Kinesin acts as a Virulence Determinant during Plant Infection

Pamil Tayal, Sumit Raj, Esha Sharma, Manoj Kumar, Vikram Dayaman, Nidhi Verma, Abhimanyu Jogawat, Meenakshi Dua, Rupam Kapoor, Atul Kumar Johri
2017 Scientific Reports  
Botrytis cinerea is a necrotrophic pathogen that infects many important crops. In an attempt to unravel some novel factors that govern pathogenicity in B. cinerea, Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation (ATMT) was deployed, and a number of tagged transformants were generated. Among these, a mutant, BCM-29 exhibited slower growth rate, reduced conidia size, conidiation and penetration. The mutant was also defective in secretion of oxalic acid (OA) and exhibited reduced activities of

Targeted deletion of KLP-7 resulted in several folds decrease in virulence of mutants as compared to WT, while complementation of the gene helped in rescue of virulence traits. This is the first time when a unique kinesin KLP-7 that is mainly found in the phylum Pezizomycotina has been linked to virulence in B. cinerea. Botrytis cinerea Persoon ex. Fries (teleomorph: Botryotinia fuckeliana (de Bary) Whetzel) is a widely distributed phytopathogen, that causes serious pre and post harvest yield losses in more than 235 different plant species in a range of agronomically important crops such as strawberry (Fragaria ananassa), tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), grapevine (Vitis vinifera), cucumber (Cucumis sativus). It affects almost all vegetative parts such as bulb, stem, leaves and even flowers of ornamental plants under conducive conditions 1, 2 . The fungus is widely distributed in the temperate areas of the world where it infects an extremely wide range of host plants 3 . The stages of plant infection by B. cinerea includes attachment of conidia on host surface, germination i.e. germ tube formation, penetration and colonization that finally leads to killing of the host tissue resulting in tissue maceration 4, 5 . B. cinerea is capable of attacking crops at all stages of their growth and under storage; also affects all plant parts 6 . B. cinerea germ tubes enter the plant via direct penetration through natural openings or wounds to derive nutrients from dead or decaying cells 7 ; therefore its colonization in the plant depends upon the ability of the fungus to kill the host cells. Chemical control is the primary means to reduce the incidence of this pathogen. However, the technique is only partially successful as it develops resistance against a wide range of fungicides. Therefore, it is vital to understand the biology of pathogen, and study host-pathogen interaction for the development of improved strategies for effective disease resistance. A large number of candidate genes for virulence like tetraspanin -BcPls1 factor, Mitogen-Activated Protein (MAP) kinase -BMP1 and components of some signalling transduction cascade have been identified in B. cinerea using targeted gene inactivation approach 8-17 . In addition, several virulence factors like cell wall degrading enzymes, transporter proteins and enzymes for protecting the fungus from oxidative stress are also involved in symptom development [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] . In parallel, random insertional mutagenesis approach has also yielded a wealth of pathogenicity mutants that led to identification of new, partly unexpected virulence factors 24, 25 . In an attempt to unravel some novel factors that govern pathogenicity in B. cinerea, we utilized ATMT and generated a number of tagged transformants. A mutant namely BCM-29 that showed considerably reduced pathogenicity was selected for detailed characterization. Tagged gene in the mutant was identified via TAIL-PCR and BLAST analysis. The sequence showed homology to a gene KLP-7 that encodes a kinesin protein. Kinesins are microtubule based energy hydrolysing motor proteins that help in the segregation of genetic material during cell division and cell growth. A high number of kinesin sub-families exist in the angiosperms, Published: xx xx xxxx OPEN 2 ScieNtific REPoRTS | 7: 10664 |

Arbuscular Mycorrhiza-Mediated Regulation of Polyamines and Aquaporins During Abiotic Stress: Deep Insights on the Recondite Players

Karuna Sharma, Samta Gupta, Sarda Devi Thokchom, Pooja Jangir, Rupam Kapoor
2021 Frontiers in Plant Science  
Environmental stresses of (a)biotic origin induce the production of multitudinous compounds (metabolites and proteins) as protective defense mechanisms in plants. On account of the regulation of some of these compounds, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) reinforce the inherent tolerance of plants toward the stress of different origins and kind. This article reviews two specific fundamental mechanisms that are categorically associated with mycorrhiza in alleviating major abiotic stresses, salt,

It puts emphasis on aquaporins (AQPs), the conduits of water and stress signals; and polyamines (PAs), the primordial stress molecules, which are regulated by AMF to assure water, nutrient, ion, and redox homeostasis. Under stressful conditions, AMF-mediated host AQP responses register distinct patterns: an upregulation to encourage water and nutrient uptake; a downregulation to restrict water loss and HM uptake; or no alterations. The patterns thereof are apparently an integrative outcome of the duration, intensity, and type of stress, AMF species, the interaction of fungal AQPs with that of plants, and the host type. However, the cellular and molecular bases of mycorrhizal influence on host AQPs are largely unexplored. The roles of PAs in augmenting the antioxidant defense system and improving the tolerance against oxidative stress are well-evident. However, the precise mechanism by which mycorrhiza accords stress tolerance by influencing the PA metabolism per se is abstruse and broadly variable under different stresses and plant species. This review comprehensively analyzes the current state-of-art of the involvement of AMF in "PA and AQP modulation" under abiotic stress and identifies the lesser-explored landscapes, gaps in understanding, and the accompanying challenges. Finally, this review outlines the prospects of AMF in realizing sustainable agriculture and provides insights into potential thrust areas of research on AMF and abiotic stress.

2022 Agronomy  
Rice is a staple food crop for almost half of the world's population, especially in the developing countries of Asia and Africa. It is widely grown in different climatic conditions, depending on the quality of the water, soil, and genetic makeup of the rice cultivar. Many (a)biotic stresses severely curtail rice growth and development, with an eventual reduction in crop yield. However, for molecular functional analysis, the availability of an efficient genetic transformation protocol is

Here, in this study, the rice transformation protocol has been effectively optimized for the efficient and rapid generation of rice transgenic plants. We also highlighted the critical steps and precautionary measures to be taken while performing the rice transformation. We further assess the efficacy of this protocol by transforming rice with two different transformation constructs for generating galactinol synthase (GolS) overexpression lines and CRISPR/Cas9-mediated edited lines of lipase (Lip) encoding the OsLip1 gene. The putative transformants were subjected to molecular analysis to confirm gene integration/editing, respectively. Collectively, the easy, efficient, and rapid rice transformation protocol used in this present study can be applied as a potential tool for gene(s) function studies in rice and eventually to the rice crop improvement.
