A gene family encoding glutathion-S-transferases from Glomus intraradices

A family of five genes from Glomus intraradices has been identified which are all inducible by heavy metals. This is up to now the largest gene family of a mycorrhizal fungus. Since such genes are generally involved ibn abiotic stress responses they could serve as a tool in order to build up a molecular biology based detection system for soils with aversive features.

On the other hand the expression pattern of these genes could mirror the characteristics of mycorrhizal fungal isolates for providing tolerance against abiotic stress.
