Overexpression of Constitutively Active OsRab11 in Plants Enhances Tolerance to High Salinity Levels

Overexpression of Constitutively Active OsRab11 in Plants Enhances Tolerance to High Salinity Levels Rab proteins are key regulators of intracellular trafficking between specific compartments in a cell.

Previously, we reported that Oryza sativa Rab11 (OsRab11) plays an important role in the intracellular trafficking from the trans-Golginetwork (TGN) to the plasma membrane (PM) and prevacuolar compartments (PVCs), and in the plant’s response to high salt stress.

Abstract

Rab proteins are key regulators of intracellular trafficking between specific compartments in a cell. Among them, Rab11, a widely conserved sub-group, mainly regulates plasma membrane (PM) trafficking. Previously, we reported that Oryza sativa Rab11 (OsRab11) plays an important role in the intracellular trafficking from the trans-Golginetwork (TGN) to the plasma membrane (PM) and prevacuolar compartments (PVCs), and in the plant’s response to high salt stress. In this study, when the constitutively active mutant of OsRab11, (CA OsRab11(Q73L)) was co-transformed with Arabidopsis Ca 2+-ATPase8-GFP (ACA8-GFP) or sporamin-GFP (Spo-GFP) into Arabidopsis protoplasts, the PM or vacuolar trafficking proportion of the reporter proteins was highly increased. Transgenic Arabidopsis plants overexpressing (OE) CA OsRab11(Q73L) exhibited enhanced tolerance to high salt stress and exogenous abscisic acid (ABA) compared to Col plants. Moreover, certain stress-responsive genes were expressed under high salt stress and ABA treatment in OEOsRab11(Q73L) plants. Thus, these results suggest that the active conformation of OsRab11 may be required to modulate plant responses to salt and ABA via the regulation of the expression of stress-responsive genes.
