Differential Expression of Specific Proteins during In Vitro Tomato Organogenesis1

Differential Expression of Specific Proteins during In Vitro Tomato Organogenesis1 The cotyledons of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L., cv. Jia Fen-10) seedlings were induced to produce calli and regenerate plants via organogenesis. Utilizing this system, the composition and content of stage-specific proteins associated with organogenesis were analyzed. Moreover, a comparison of the protein composition and content between embryogenic and nonembryogenic calli was conducted. The SDS-PAGE results and laser densitometric scanning maps showed that there were different specific proteins expressed at different stages. Among them, six proteins (61, 54, 38, 37, 35, and 23 kD) were associated with the morphogenesis of organs, and two proteins (39 and 24 kD) were related to the morphogenesis of calli. Although no distinctive difference in protein components of embryogenic calli was noted, there were different trends of changes, both for the content of the proteins 39 and 24 kD, and for the content of the total proteins, at different developmental stages of embryogenic calli. The results obtained from the embryogenic and nonembryogenic calli indicated that these two materials were distinct in the protein components as well as in its content; for example, the protein 54 kD was detected in nonembryogenic but not in embryogenic calli. The total protein content in nonembryogenic calli was lower than that in the embryogenic calli. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
