The mutualistic interaction between plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi is believed to be regulated from the plant side among other signals by the action of phytohormones. Evidences for this are based mainly on application experiments and determination of phytohormone levels in AM roots by comparison to non-mycorrhizal roots. In case of jasmonates, additional proof is given by reverse genetic approaches, which led to first insights into their putative role in the establishment and functioning of the symbiosis. This review summarizes the current data about phytohormone action in AM roots and the role of jasmonates in particular.
