Étude de l’interaction physique entre le champignon ectomycorhizien Laccaria bicolor S238N et la bactérie auxiliaire de la mycorhization Pseudomonas fluorescens BBc6

Abstract : In soil ecosystems, ectomycorrhizal fungi (ECM) form a widespread symbiosis with roots of trees, contributing to tree growth and health. It has been shown that some bacteria, called mycorrhization helper bacteria (MHB), stimulate mycorrhizal symbiosis. The mechanisms of this helper effect are poorly understood. Previous studies have shown that the MHB Pseudomonas fluorescens BBc6 formed biofilm-like structures around the hyphae of the ECM Laccaria bicolor during their in vitro interaction. In this context, in order to increase knowledge concerning MHB/ECM interactions, the work presented here focuses on the physical interaction between these two organisms. To this purpose, a method of analysis based on confocal microscopy was developed. The results showed that the bacteria formed biofilms preferentially localized on the apical region of the ECM colonies, which could indicate a trophic interaction. Such an interaction has been subsequently confirmed. The results also showed that the physical interaction between L. bicolor and BBc6 is not specific since all thirteen other bacterial strains tested formed biofilms on the hyphae of L. bicolor. On the other hand, BBc6 was unable to form biofilms on some fungi belonging to Ascomycetes, suggesting the existence of inhibition mechanisms. Moreover, the study of the BBc6 biofilm matrix revealed networks of DNA-containing filaments which seem to structure these biofilms and which have also been observed in all the bacterial strains tested. These results reveal a structural role of the DNA molecule, a role that has been rarely reported so far despite its probable high occurrence. Finally, it has been shown that BBc6 mutants having lost their helper effect presented a modified phenotype concerning their biofilm formation on abiotic surface, suggesting a potential link between the helper effect and the biofilms formation
