Abstract

As in higher plants, the development of the moss Physcomitrella patens is regulated by environmental signals and phytohormones. At the protonema level transition from chloronema to caulonema cells is under auxin control. The formation on second sub-apical caulonema cells of buds that will give rise to the leafy gametophore requires cytokinins. Using [3H]azidoCPPU (1-(2-azido-6-chloropyrid-4-yl)-3-(4-[3H])phenylurea), a photoactivatable cytokinin agonist, we have specifically photolabelled a soluble 34 kDa protein of P. patens. Urea derivatives were very efficient competitors of photolabelling while purine-type cytokinins were poor competitors. The protein UBP34 was purified by affinity chromatography and the sequences of six internal peptides obtained. A cDNA encoding UBP34 was cloned by screening a P. patens protonema cDNA library with a probe amplified by PCR using degenerate primers designed from the peptide sequences. The UBP34 amino acid sequence shows an average sequence identity of 42% with both intracellular PR proteins and the BetV1-related family of plant allergens. Recombinant UBP34 expressed in Escherichia coli was confirmed to bind azidoCPPU.
