Abstract: The ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Suillus luteus (L.:Fr.), a typical pioneer species which associates with young pine trees colonizing disturbed sites, is a common root symbiont found at heavy metal contaminated sites. Three Cd-sensitive and three Cd-tolerant isolates of S. luteus, isolated respectively from non-polluted and a heavy metal-polluted site in Limburg (Belgium), were used for a transcriptomic analysis. We identified differentially expressed genes by cDNA-AFLP analysis. The possible roles of some of the encoded proteins in heavy metal (Cd) accumulation and tolerance are discussed. Despite the high conservation of coding sequences in S. luteus, a large intraspecific variation in the transcript profiles was observed. This variation was as large in Cd-tolerant as in sensitive isolates and may help this pioneer species to adapt to novel environments.
