Transcriptional responses to flooding stress in roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings

Transcriptional responses to flooding stress in roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings To understand the transcriptional responses to flooding stress in roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings, genome-wide changes in gene expression were analyzed using a soybean microarray chip containing 42,034 60-mer oligonucleotide probes. More than 6,000 of flooding-responsive genes in the roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings were identified. The transcriptional analysis showed that genes related to photosynthesis, glycolysis, Ser-Gly-Cys group amino acid synthesis, regulation of transcription, ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation and cell death were significantly up-regulated by flooding. Meanwhile, genes related to cell wall synthesis, secondary metabolism, metabolite transport, cell organization, chromatin structure synthesis, and degradation of aspartate family amino acid were significantly down-regulated. Comparison of the responses with other plants showed that genes encoding pyrophosphate dependent phosphofructokinase were down-regulated in flooded soybean seedlings, however, those in tolerant plants were up-regulated. Additionally, genes related to RNA processing and initiation of protein synthesis were not up-regulated in soybean, however, those in tolerant plants were up-regulated. Furthermore, we found that flooding-specific up-regulation of genes encoding small proteins which might have roles in acclimation to flooding. These results suggest that functional disorder of acclimative responses to flooding through transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulations is involved in occurring flooding injury to soybean seedlings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

To understand the transcriptional responses to flooding stress in roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings, genome-wide changes in gene expression were analyzed using a soybean microarray chip containing 42,034 60-mer oligonucleotide probes. More than 6,000 of flooding-responsive genes in the roots including hypocotyl of soybean seedlings were identified. The transcriptional analysis showed that genes related to photosynthesis, glycolysis, Ser-Gly-Cys group amino acid synthesis, regulation of transcription, ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation and cell death were significantly up-regulated by flooding. Meanwhile, genes related to cell wall synthesis, secondary metabolism, metabolite transport, cell organization, chromatin structure synthesis, and degradation of aspartate family amino acid were significantly down-regulated. Comparison of the responses with other plants showed that genes encoding pyrophosphate dependent phosphofructokinase were down-regulated in flooded soybean seedlings, however, those in tolerant plants were up-regulated. Additionally, genes related to RNA processing and initiation of protein synthesis were not up-regulated in soybean, however, those in tolerant plants were up-regulated. Furthermore, we found that flooding-specific up-regulation of genes encoding small proteins which might have roles in acclimation to flooding. These results suggest that functional disorder of acclimative responses to flooding through transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulations is involved in occurring flooding injury to soybean seedlings.
