We investigated the relationship between plant growth and polyphosphate (poly P) content in Allium fistulosum roots colonized by Glomus sp. R10 or Glomus etunicatum with different levels of phosphate addition. Poly P was quantified by two enzymatic assays: long-chain poly P (>∼20 inorganic phosphate [Pi] residues) with polyphosphate kinase, and total poly P with polyphosphate exopolyphosphatase. The difference between these values was designated as short-chain poly P (<∼20 Pi residues). The content of long-chain poly P in mycorrhizal roots and plant growth was poorly correlated or not, depending in fungal species. However, the content of short-chain poly P and plant growth was highly correlated in both species. This difference suggests that short-chain poly P in mycorrhizal roots colonized by Glomus spp. functions as a pool of Pi for the plant.
