Abstract

VA mycorrhizae provide a good example of two highly integrated eucaryotes which exchange information and energy. The cellular compatibility, typical of the established symbiosis, is the result of recognition events, the molecular basis of which is still unknown. At the ultrastructural level, however, we can identify some important events as short range interactions, that is host/fungus contacts mediated by cell walls or similar material (Bonfante-Fasolo and Gianinazzi Pearson, 1986).
