Aluminium-induced cell death requires upregulation of NtVPE1 gene coding vacuolar processing enzyme in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.)

Aluminium-induced cell death requires upregulation of NtVPE1 gene coding vacuolar processing... Cell death mechanism triggered by aluminium (Al) ion was investigated at root apex of tobacco (cultivar Bright Yellow) and in cultured tobacco cell line BY-2 derived from Bright Yellow, focusing on VPE genes (NtVPE1a, NtVPE1b, NtVPE2, NtVPE3).

Abstract

Cell death mechanism triggered by aluminium (Al) ion was investigated at root apex of tobacco (cultivar Bright Yellow) and in cultured tobacco cell line BY-2 derived from Bright Yellow, focusing on VPE genes (NtVPE1a, NtVPE1b, NtVPE2, NtVPE3). Cell death was detected as a loss of integrity of the plasma membrane by vital staining with fluorescein diacetate (in root apex) and Evans blue (in BY-2), respectively. At root apex, the upregulation of gene expression of VPE1a and VPE1b was observed significantly after 9h of Al exposure in parallel with an enhancement of cell death, while the upregulation of VPE2 and VPE3 were observed later. Similarly, in BY-2 cells, the upregulation of VPE1a and VPE1b and the enhancement of cell death were synchronously observed after 3-h exposure to Al, while the upregulation of VPE2 and VPE3 occurred later. RNA interference (RNAi) lines of each of the VPEs were constructed in BY-2 cells. Comparative studies between wild-type and the RNAi lines indicated that both Al-enhanced VPE activity and Al-induced cell death were significantly suppressed in the RNAi lines of VPE1 (dual suppressor of VPE1a and VPE1b), but not in the RNAi lines of VPE2 and that of VPE3. Taken together, we conclude that the upregulation of VPE1 gene expression and following enhancement of VPE activity under Al stress cause cell death in actively growing or elongating cells of tobacco.
