  Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) symbiosis could mitigate the adverse effects of abiotic stresses in various plants. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of AMF-inoculation on expression of several stress-responsive genes in two rice cultivars under different water conditions. The seedlings ...  Read More

  Citrus bacterial blast disease is one of the prevalent diseases in most citrus-growing regions in the world. Plants use a wide range of mechanisms to defend against pathogens, and the plant-pathogen interaction induces the expression of genes involved in the plant resistance. Furthermore, symbiotic association ...  Read More
