Local regulation of auxin transport in root-apex transition zone mediates aluminium-induced Arabidopsis root growth inhibition.

Plant J 2021 Jul 17. Epub 2021 Jul 17.

The Key Laboratory of Plant Development and Environmental Adaptation Biology, Ministry of Education, School of Life Science, Shandong University (Qingdao), Qingdao, 266237, P. R. China.

Aluminium (Al) stress is a major limiting factor for worldwide crop production in acid soils. In Arabidopsis thaliana, the TAA1-dependent local auxin biosynthesis in the root-apex transition zone (TZ), the the major perception site for Al toxicity, is crucial for the Al-induced root growth inhibition, while the mechanism underlying Al-regulated auxin accumulation in the TZ is not fully understood. In this study, the role of auxin transport in Al-induced local auxin accumulation in the TZ and root growth inhibition was investigated. Read More

Novel Sources of Tolerance to Aluminium Toxicity in Wild ( and ) Collections.

Front Plant Sci 2021 25;12:678211. Epub 2021 Jun 25.

Centre for Sustainable Farming Systems, Future Food Institute, Murdoch University, Perth, WA, Australia.

In acid soils, the toxic form of aluminium, Al, significantly inhibits root growth and elongation, leading to less water and nutrient uptake. Previous research had shown differential Al toxicity tolerance among cultivated L. (chickpea); however, the potential for developing tolerant cultivars is limited by the narrow genetic diversity of cultivated chickpeas. Read More

Genome Wide Association Mapping of Root Traits in the Andean Genepool of Common Bean ( L.) Grown With and Without Aluminum Toxicity.

Front Plant Sci 2021 25;12:628687. Epub 2021 Jun 25.

Department of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Tennessee State University, Nashville, TN, United States.

Common bean is one of the most important grain legumes for human diets but is produced on marginal lands with unfavorable soil conditions; among which Aluminum (Al) toxicity is a serious and widespread problem. Under low pH, stable forms of Al dissolve into the soil solution and as phytotoxic ions inhibit the growth and function of roots through injury to the root apex. This results in a smaller root system that detrimentally effects yield. Read More

Root Stem Cell Niche networks: It's complexed! A review on gene networks regulating the Arabidopsis root stem cell niche.

J Exp Bot 2021 Jun 26. Epub 2021 Jun 26.

Wageningen University & Research, Plant Sciences department, Plant Developmental Biology group, Droevendaalsesteeg, Wageningen, Netherlands.

The presence of two meristematic cell populations in the root and shoot apex allow plants to grow indefinitely. Due to its simple and predictable tissue organisation, the Arabidopsis root apical meristem remains an ideal model to study mechanisms such as stem cell specification, asymmetric cell division and differentiation in plants. The root stem cell niche consists of a quiescent organizing center surrounded by mitotically active stem cells, that originate all root tissues. Read More
