ACIOLI-SANTOS, B. et al. PtSRR1, a putative Pisolithus tinctorius symbiosis related receptor gene is expressed during the first hours of mycorrhizal interaction with Castanea sativa roots. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2009, vol.40, n.2, pp. 292-295. ISSN 1678-4405. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822009000200015.
PtSRR1 EST was previously identified in the first hours of Pisolithus tinctorius and Castanea sativa interaction. QRT-PCR confirmed PtSRR1 early expression and in silico preliminary translated peptide analysis indicated a strong probability that PtSRR1 be a transmembrane protein. These data stimulate the PtSRR1 gene research during ectomycorrhiza formation.
