Ethylene is known to influence the cell cycle (CC) via poorly characterized roles whilst nitric oxide (NO) has well-established roles in the animal CC but analogous role(s) have not been reported for plants. As NO and ethylene signaling events often interact we examined their role in CC in cultured cells derived from Arabidopsis thaliana wild-type (Col-0) plants and from ethylene-insensitive mutant ein2-1 plants. Both NO and ethylene were produced mainly during the first 5 days of the sub-cultivation period corresponding to the period of active cell division...

The downstream flux of carotenoid metabolism in grape berries includes the biosynthesis of norisoprenoids, a group of important aroma compounds, and the production of ABA, a well-known plant hormone. This study focused on the transcriptional profiling comparison of genes participating in the biosynthesis of carotenoids, norisoprenoids, and ABA in Vitis vinifera 'Cabernet Sauvignon' grapes at pea size, veraison, and ripening stages. The grapes were obtained from Changli (CL, eastern China) and Gaotai (GT, western China) regions and analyzed using RNA-sequencing technology...

Removal of astringency by endogenously formed acetaldehyde, achieved by postharvest anaerobic treatment, is of critical importance for many types of persimmon fruit. Although an anaerobic environment accelerates de-astringency it also has the deleterious effect of promoting excessive softening, reducing shelf-life and marketability. Some hypoxia-responsive ethylene response factor (ERFs) participate in anaerobic de-astringency, but their role in accelerated softening was unclear. Undesirable rapid softening induced by high CO2 (95%) was ameliorated by adding the ethylene inhibitor 1-MCP (1 μl L(-1) ), resulting in reduced astringency while maintaining firmness, suggesting that CO2 -induced softening involves ethylene signalling...

Ruidang Quan, Juan Wang, Dexin Yang, Haiwen Zhang, Zhijin Zhang, Rongfeng Huang
Ethylene biosynthesis and the ethylene signaling pathway regulate plant salt tolerance by activating the expression of downstream target genes such as those related to ROS and Na(+)/K(+) homeostasis. The Salt Overly Sensitive (SOS) pathway regulates Na(+)/K(+) homeostasis in Arabidopsis under salt stress. However, the connection between these two pathways is unclear. Through genetic screening, we identified two sos2 alleles as salt sensitive mutants in the ein3-1 background. Neither Ethylene-Insensitive 2 (EIN2) nor EIN3 changed the expression patterns of SOS genes including SOS1, SOS2, SOS3 and SOS3-like Calcium Binding Protein 8 (SCaBP8), but SOS2 activated the expression of one target gene of EIN3, Ethylene and Salt-inducible ERF 1 (ESE1)...

Nematodes and other organisms perceive and respond to plant root exudates. These exudates are affected by the condition and genetic makeup of the plant. Attraction of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne hapla to roots is altered in plants with mutations affecting ethylene signaling, suggesting that the root exudates to which the nematode responds are modulated by ethylene signaling. Nematode interactions with roots have been difficult to observe directly due to the opaqueness of soil. A medium based on the block copolymer Pluronic F-127 has been useful for studying these interactions...

Ethylene plays a key role in various submergence responses of rice plants, but the mechanism of ethylene action remains largely unclear in rice. Regarding the differences between rice and Arabidopsis in ethylene-regulated processes, rice plants may possess divergent mechanisms in ethylene signaling in addition to the conserved aspects. Forward genetic analysis is essential to fully understand the ethylene signaling mechanism in rice. Here, we describe a method for screening ethylene-response mutants and evaluating ethylene responsiveness in etiolated rice seedlings...

Mareike Kessenbrock, Georg Groth
Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy is an invaluable technique to analyze secondary structure and functional folding of recombinant purified proteins. CD spectroscopy can also be applied to detect changes in protein secondary structure related to the pH or redox conditions found in different cellular compartments or to the interaction with other molecules. Another biophysical technique to monitor conformational changes and interaction with small molecule ligands or biological macromolecules is protein fluorescence spectroscopy making use of the aromatic amino acid tryptophan as a sensitive intrinsic fluorescent probe...

Protein kinases are central components of signal transduction pathways in the cell. They catalyze the phosphorylation of substrate proteins, resulting in changes of the activity, localization, stability, and protein interactions of the substrates, ultimately coordinating the activity of important cellular processes. CONSTITUTIVE TRIPLE RESPONSE 1 (CTR1) is a Raf-like protein kinase that functions as a negative regulator in the phytohormone ethylene signaling pathway. CTR1 physically interacts with ethylene receptors via its N-terminal domain at the endoplasmic reticulum, and is involved in suppressing ethylene signaling in the absence of ethylene...

Ethylene receptors and other elements of the ethylene-signal transduction pathway localize to membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). New players in the ethylene signaling pathway continue to be discovered and so it is important to have methods by which to diagnose their cellular localization. Two methods for microsome isolation and fractionation are described here that can assist in determining if a protein localizes to the ER: aqueous two-phase partitioning and equilibrium density-gradient centrifugation...

Ethylene receptors are predominantly localized to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane, and coordinate ethylene signal output through protein-protein interactions with each other and additional signaling components. Here, we describe a co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) assay based on the use of the Tandem Affinity Purification (TAP) tag to examine the interactions of ethylene receptors in plant extracts. Human IgG-agarose beads are used to pull down TAP-tagged versions of the protein of interest from detergent extracts of Arabidopsis membranes, and the precipitate then is analyzed immunologically for co-purification of the ethylene receptors...

SEPALLATA genes are members of a subfamily of MADS-box transcription factors, and have essential roles in floral organ development and fruit ripening. In this study, the PrupeSEP1 gene was cloned from peach flesh. Its deduced amino acid sequence was very similar to that of MdMADS8 and MdMADS9 in apple and MADS-RIN-like in strawberry. During storage of melting flesh (MF) peach, the pattern of SEP1 expression was similar to that of ethylene biosynthesis and ethylene signal transduction-related gene expression (EIN2 and ETR2)...

Ethylene responsive factors (ERFs) act as critical downstream components of the ethylene signalling pathway in regulating plant development and stress responses. However little is known about its role in regulation of photosynthesis. Here, we identified an ethylene-inducible ERF gene in citrus, CitERF13. Transient over-expression of CitERF13 in N. tabacum leaves, resulted in a significant decrease in net photosynthetic rate. Closer examination of photosynthetic activity of PSII and PSI indicated that CitERF13 overexpression led to declines of Fv/Fm, Y(II) and Y(I)...

Paraburkholderia phytofirmans PsJN is a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium (PGPR) that stimulates plant growth and improves tolerance to abiotic stresses. This study analyzed whether strain PsJN can reduce plant disease severity and proliferation of the virulent strain Pseudomonas syringae pv tomato (Pst) DC3000 in Arabidopsis plants, through the activation of induced resistance. Arabidopsis plants previously exposed to strain PsJN showed a reduction in disease severity and pathogen proliferation in leaves compared to non-inoculated, infected plants...

Current innovations in mass-spectrometry-based technologies allow deep coverage of protein expression. Despite its immense value and in contrast to transcriptomics, only a handful of studies in crop plants engaged with global proteome assays. Here, we present large-scale shotgun proteomics profiling of tomato fruit across two key tissues and five developmental stages. A total of 7738 individual protein groups were identified and reliably measured at least in one of the analyzed tissues or stages. The depth of our assay enabled identification of 61 differentially expressed transcription factors including renowned ripening-related regulators and elements of ethylene signaling...

Nodulation (Nod) factors (NFs) are symbiotic molecules produced by rhizobia that are essential for establishment of the rhizobium-legume endosymbiosis. Purified NFs can stimulate lateral root formation (LRF) in Medicago truncatula, but little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved. Using a combination of reporter constructs, pharmacological and genetic approaches, we show that NFs act on early steps of LRF in M. truncatula, independently of the ethylene signaling pathway and of the cytokinin receptor MtCRE1, but in interaction with auxin...

Ethylene and xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolase (XTH) genes were important for fruit ripening and softening in 'Taishanzaoxia' apple. In this study, we found it was ACS1-1/-1 homozygotes in 'Taishanzaoxia' apple, which determined the higher transcription activity of ACS1. XTH1, XTH3, XTH4, XTH5, and XTH9 were mainly involved in the early fruit softening independent of ethylene, while XTH2, XTH6, XTH7, XTH8, XTH10, and XTH11 were predominantly involved in the late fruit softening dependent on ethylene...

Cadmium (Cd) is a highly toxic element to plants. Ethylene is an important phytohormone in the regulation of plant growth, development and stress response. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation has been observed in plants exposed to Cd stress and was suggested to be involved in ethylene biosynthesis. We hypothesized that there may be a link between MAPK cascades and ethylene signalling in Cd-stressed plants. To test this hypothesis, the expression of LcMKK, LchERF and LcGSH1 genes, endogenous ethylene accumulation, GSH content and Cd concentration in Lycium chinense with or without Cd stress treatment were studied...

Ethylene is crucial in climacteric fruit ripening. The ethylene signal pathway regulates several physiological alterations such as softening, carotenoid accumulation and sugar level reduction, and production of volatile compounds. All these physiological processes are controlled by numerous genes and their expression simultaneously changes at the onset of ripening. Ethylene insensitive 2 (EIN2) is a key component for ethylene signal transduction, and its mutation causes ethylene insensitivity. In tomato, silencing SlEIN2 resulted in a non-ripening phenotype and low ethylene production...

Sulfur deficiency in plants leads to metabolic reprogramming through changes of gene expression. SLIM1 is so far the only characterized transcription factor associated strictly with sulfur deficiency stress in Arabidopsis thaliana. It belongs to the same protein family as EIN3, a major positive switch of ethylene signaling pathway. It binds to the specific cis sequence called UPE-box. Here we show that SLIM1 interacts with UPE-box as a homodimer. Interestingly, the same region of the protein is used for heterodimerization with EIN3; however, the heterodimer is not able to recognize UPE-box...
