Maize Genic Male-sterility Genes and Their Applications in Hybrid Breeding: Progress and Perspectives.

Mol Plant 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Beijing Engineering Laboratory of Main Crop Bio-Tech Breeding, Beijing International Science and Technology Cooperation Base of Bio-Tech Breeding, Beijing Solidwill Sci-Tech Co. Ltd., Beijing 100192, China.

As one of the most important crops, maize not only has been a source of the food, feed, and industrial feedstock for biofuel and bioproducts but also became as a model plant system for addressing fundamental questions in genetics. Male sterility is a very useful trait for hybrid vigor utilization and hybrid seed production. The identification and characterization of genic male-sterility (GMS) genes in maize and other plants have deepened our understanding of the molecular mechanisms controlling anther and pollen development, and enabled the development and efficient use of many biotechnology-based male-sterility (BMS) systems for crop hybrid breeding.

Endogenous hypoxia in lateral root primordia controls root architecture by antagonizing auxin signaling in Arabidopsis.

Mol Plant 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Institute of Life Sciences, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, Italy; Biology Department, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

As non-photosynthesizing organs, roots are dependent on diffusion of oxygen from the external environment and, in some instances, from the shoot for their aerobic metabolism. Establishment of hypoxic niches in the developing tissues of plants has been postulated as a consequence of insufficient diffusion of oxygen to satisfy the demands throughout development. Here, we report that such niches are established at specific stages of lateral root primordia development in Arabidopsis thaliana grown under aerobic conditions. Read More

BRIF-Seq: Bisulfite-Converted Randomly Integrated Fragments Sequencing at the Single-Cell Level.

Mol Plant 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan 430070, China. Electronic address:

Single-cell bisulfite sequencing (scBS-seq) was developed to assess DNA methylation heterogeneity in human and mouse. However, the reads are under-represented in regions with high DNA methylation, because these regions are usually fragmented into long segments and are seldom sequenced on the Illumina platform. To reduce the read distribution bias and maximize the use of these long segments, we developed bisulfite-converted randomly integrated fragments sequencing (BRIF-seq), a method with high rates of read mapping and genome coverage.

MapMan4: a refined protein classification and annotation framework applicable to multi-omics data analysis.

Mol Plant 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Institute for Bio- and Geosciences (IBG-2: Plant Sciences), Forschungszentrum Jülich, Wilhelm Johnen Straße, Jülich, Germany; Institute for Botany and Molecular Genetics, BioEconomy Science Center, Worringer Weg, RWTH Aachen University, 52074 Aachen, Germany.

Genome sequences from over 200 plant species have already been published, with this number expected to increase rapidly due to advances in sequencing technologies. Once a new genome has been assembled and the genes identified, the functional annotation of their proteins using ontologies is of key importance as it places the sequencing data in a biological context. Furthermore, in order to keep pace with rapid production of genome sequences, this functional annotation process must be fully automated. Read More

Arabidopsis ABF3 and ABF4 Transcription Factors Act with the NF-YC Complex to Regulate SOC1 Expression and Mediate Drought-Accelerated Flowering.

Mol Plant 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Life Sciences, Korea University, Seoul, South Korea. Electronic address:

The drought-escape response accelerates flowering in response to drought stress, allowing plants to adaptively shorten their life cycles. Abscisic acid (ABA) mediates plant responses to drought, but the role of ABA-responsive element-binding factors (ABFs) in the drought-escape response is poorly understood. Here, we show that Arabidopsis thaliana ABF3 and ABF4 regulate flowering through transcriptional regulation of the floral integrator SUPPRESSOR OF OVEREXPRESSION OF CONSTANS1 (SOC1) in the drought-escape response.

Engineering a New Chloroplastic Photorespiratory Bypass to Increase Photosynthetic Efficiency and Productivity in Rice.

Mol Plant 2019 Feb 10;12(2):199-214. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

State Key Laboratory for Conservation and Utilization of Subtropical Agro-bioresources, College of Life Sciences, South China Agricultural University, Guangzhou 510642, China. Electronic address:

Over the past few years, three photorespiratory bypasses have been introduced into plants, two of which led to observable increases in photosynthesis and biomass yield. However, most of the experiments were carried out using Arabidopsis under controlled environmental conditions, and the increases were only observed under low-light and short-day conditions. In this study, we designed a new photorespiratory bypass (called GOC bypass), characterized by no reducing equivalents being produced during a complete oxidation of glycolate into CO catalyzed by three rice-self-originating enzymes, i.

Departamento de Ecología Evolutiva, Instituto de Ecología, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Circuito Exterior s/n Anexo al Jardín Botánico, 04510 Ciudad de México, Mexico. Electronic address:

Whole-genome duplications are an important source of evolutionary novelties that change the mode and tempo at which genetic elements evolve within a genome. The Cucurbita genus experienced a whole-genome duplication around 30 Mya, although the evolutionary dynamics of their coding and noncoding genes have not yet been scrutinized. Here, we analyzed the genomes of four Cucurbita species, including the novel genome assembly of Cucurbita argyrosperma, and compared their gene contents with five other members of the Cucurbitaceae family to assess the evolutionary dynamics of protein-coding and long intergenic noncoding RNA (lincRNA) genes after the genome duplication.

A Single JAZ Repressor Controls the Jasmonate Pathway in Marchantia polymorpha.

Mol Plant 2019 Feb 27;12(2):185-198. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Plant Molecular Genetics, Centro Nacional de Biotecnología, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CNB-CSIC), 28049 Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

JAZ proteins are negative regulators of jasmonate responses, acting both as repressors of transcription factors and as co-receptors of JA-Ile. The high redundancy of JAZ genes in angiosperms has hindered the characterization of a complete depletion of JAZ function. Moreover, the recent discovery that dn-OPDA is the jasmonate ligand in Marchantia polymorpha demonstrates that JA-Ile is not the sole COI1/JAZ ligand in land plants and highlights the importance of studying JAZ co-receptors in bryophytes.

Electronic address:

The composition of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in triacylglycerols (TAGs) is key to health benefits and for oil applications, yet the underlying genetic mechanism remains poorly understood. In this study, by in silico, ex vivo, and in vivo profiling of type-2 diacylglycerol acyltransferases (DGAT2s) in Nannochloropsis oceanica we revealed two novel PUFA-preferring enzymes that discriminate individual PUFA species in TAG assembly, with NoDGAT2J for linoleic acid (LA) and NoDGAT2K for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The LA and EPA composition of TAG molecules is mediated in vivo via the functional partitioning between NoDGAT2J and 2K, both of which are localized in the chloroplast envelope. Read More

Reversible Histone H2B Monoubiquitination Fine-Tunes Abscisic Acid Signaling and Drought Response in Rice.

Mol Plant 2019 Feb 19;12(2):263-277. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement and National Center of Plant Gene Research (Wuhan), Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan 430070, China. Electronic address:

Histone H2B monoubiquitination (H2Bub1) plays important roles in several physiological and developmental processes, but its roles in the regulation of plant stress responses remain elusive. Here, we report that H2Bub1 is crucially involved in abscisic acid (ABA) signaling and drought response in rice. We found that rice HISTONE MONOUBIQUITINATION2 (OsHUB2), an E3 ligase for H2Bub1, interacted with OsbZIP46, a key transcription factor regulating ABA signaling and drought response in rice.

SIZ1-Mediated SUMOylation of TPR1 Suppresses Plant Immunity in Arabidopsis.

Mol Plant 2019 Feb 11;12(2):215-228. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Key Laboratory of Plant Molecular Physiology, Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100093, China. Electronic address:

Plant immune responses are tightly regulated to ensure their appropriate deployment. Overexpression of TOPLESS-RELATED 1 (TPR1), a SUPPRESSOR OF npr1-1, CONSTITUTIVE 1 (SNC1)-interacting protein, results in autoimmunity that reduces plant growth and development. However, how TPR1 activity is regulated remains unknown. Read More

Nucleocytoplasmic Shuttling of Geminivirus C4 Protein Mediated by Phosphorylation and Myristoylation Is Critical for Viral Pathogenicity.

Mol Plant 2018 Dec 25;11(12):1466-1481. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

State Key Laboratory of Rice Biology, Institute of Biotechnology, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, Zhejiang 310058, China; State Key Laboratory for Biology of Plant Diseases and Insect Pests, Institute of Plant Protection, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Beijing 100193, China. Electronic address:

Many geminivirus C4 proteins induce severe developmental abnormalities in plants. We previously demonstrated that Tomato leaf curl Yunnan virus (TLCYnV) C4 induces plant developmental abnormalities at least partically by decreasing the accumulation of NbSKη, an ortholog of Arabidopsis BIN2 kinase involved in the brassinosteroid signaling pathway, in the nucleus through directing it to the plasma membrane. However, the molecular mechanism by which the membrane-associated C4 modifies the localization of NbSKη in the host cell remains unclear. Read More

Graduate School of Science & Technology, Kumamoto University, 2-39-1 Kurokami, Chuo-ku, Kumamoto 860-8555, Japan. Electronic address:

Seed exudates influence the behavior of soil organisms, but how this occurs remains unclear, particularly for multicellular animals. Here we show that compounds associated with Arabidopsis seed-coat mucilage regulate the behavior of soil-borne animals, specifically root-knot nematodes (RKNs). Infective RKN J2 larvae actively travel toward Arabidopsis seeds through chemotaxis. Read More
