Abstract


In this study consequences of phosphate uptake via the arbuscular mycorrhizal uptake pathway on the leaf ionome, metabolome and transcriptome were analysed in the crop plant Zea mays. The improved P-status of mycorrhizal plants was accompanied by increased P-concentrations, changes in lipid- and anthocyanin-accumulation and an increased carbohydrate versus amino acid ratio at leaf level. Moreover induction of plant defence genes and accumulation of saponin precursors alpha- and beta-amyrin as putative defence compounds suggest a mycorrhiza-induced priming of the plant to counteract to pathogen attack. The work emphasises the impact of belowground arbuscular mycorrhiza symbiosis for the physiological status of plant leaves.
