Root structures modifications type, especially cell wall, cortical cell, endoplasmic reticulum, and plasmalemma suggest that the fungus can play a great role in all root aspects.
In spite of this, the fungus penetrated the sporophyte primary roots and spread forming intra- and inter-cellular linear grouped hyphae in the rhizodermis and in the outermost cortical cell layers of the roots, developing "arbuscule-shaped structures" and hyphal like-coils.
Encapsulated hyphae penetrate into a cortical cell through the base of the root hair.
Immunohistochemical studies demonstrated p53 protein localization in cell nuclei of both tumors, as well as in the adjacent normal-appearing adrenal cortical cell nuclei.
To do so, they compressed and optimized several steps of the process so that somatic cells are reprogrammed, expanded and stimulated to form cortical cells almost simultaneously.
