To determine whether the expression of cell wall related genes changes during the establishment of an arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis (AM), we studied the expression of a maize hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein (HRGP) gene. In situ hybridization showed that, in differentiated cells of maize roots, mRNA accumulation corresponding to the gene encoding for HRGP was only found when the cells were colonized by the endomycorrhizal fungusGlomus versiforme.
