Petunia hybrida is a popular bedding plant that has a long history as a genetic model system. We report the whole-genome sequencing and assembly of inbred derivatives of its two wild parents, P. axillaris N and P. inflata S6. The assemblies include 91.3% and 90.2% coverage of their diploid genomes (1.4 Gb; 2n = 14) containing 32,928 and 36,697 protein-coding genes, respectively. The...

Phosphate systemically inhibits development of arbuscular mycorrhiza in Petunia hybrida and represses genes involved in mycorrhizal functioning

Breuillin, Florence ; Schramm, Jonathan ; Hajirezaei, Mohammad ; Ahkami, Amir ; Favre, Patrick ; Druege, Uwe ; Hause, Bettina ; Bucher, Marcel ; Kretzschmar, Tobias ; Bossolini, Eligio ; Kuhlemeier, Cris ; Martinoia, Enrico ; Franken, Philipp ; Scholz, Uwe ; Reinhardt, Didier

In: The Plant Journal, 2010, p. -

Most terrestrial plants form arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM), mutualistic associations with soil fungi of the order Glomeromycota. The obligate biotrophic fungi trade mineral nutrients, mainly phosphate (Pi), for carbohydrates from the plants. Under conditions of high exogenous phosphate supply, when the plant can meet its own P requirements without the fungus, AM are suppressed,...

A transgenic dTph1 insertional mutagenesis system for forward genetics in mycorrhizal phosphate transport of Petunia

Wegmüller, Sarah ; Svistoonoff, Sergio ; Reinhardt, Didier ; Stuurman, Jeroen ; Amrhein, Nikolaus ; Bucher, Marcel

In: The Plant Journal, 2008, vol. 54, no. 6, p. 1115 - 1127

The active endogenous dTph1 system of the Petunia hybrida mutator line W138 has been used in several forward-genetic mutant screens that were based on visible phenotypes such as flower morphology and color. In contrast, defective symbiotic phosphate (Pi) transport in mycorrhizal roots of Petunia is a hidden molecular phenotype as the symbiosis between plant roots and fungi takes place...
