Abstract

Actinorhizal plants are key elements of natural ecosystems. Besides their high adaptability to extreme harsh environments, most actinorhizal plants have the capacity to obtain high levels of nitrogen due to their ability to establish symbiosis at the root level with nitrogen-fixing bacteria of the genus Frankia. Symbiosis is an ontogenic process that requires a highly coordinated sequence of events. One of such mechanisms is the induction of defense-related genes, whose main role during the symbiotic interaction remains to be elucidated. In this paper, we discuss the putative function of two defense-related proteins involved in the actinorhizal symbiosis established between Casuarina glauca and Frankia, namely a class III chitinase (CgCHI3) and a glutathione S-transferase (CgGST).
