Lignification Induced by Pseudomonads Harboring Avirulent Genes on Arabidopsis

Sukchan Lee, Yogesh Sharma, Taek Kyun Lee, Man Chang, KeithR. Davis

Abstract

The responses of Arabidopsis thaliana ecotypes to the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. maculicola 4326 (Psm4326) harboring cloned avirulence genes avrB and avrRpt2 from P. syringae pv. glycinea were examined. Psm4326 containing avirulent genes, avrB and avrRpt2 induced lignification and peroxidase activities in the bacteria infiltrated leaves of Col-O only and not in Mt-O, Bla-2 and Po-1. However, Arabidopsis ecotypes infiltrated with Psm4326 harboring with and without avirulent genes all showed differential induction of mRNA for peroxidase gene and lignin accumulation up to 24 h after infiltration. Only avrB gene in Col-O showed strong corelationship between peroxidase mRNA expression as well as lignification gradually up to 36 h after infiltration. These results extend previous observations that avirulence genes from pathogens of one host plant can be recognized by non-host plants and provide the genetic framework for analysis of the plant-specific response to the bacterial avirulent gene products in A. thaliana.

COVER PICTURE
Cryo-EM structure of human porphyrin transporter ABCB6 (main figure) shows that binding of hemin (inset, magenta) in concert with two glutathione molecules (cyan) primes ABCB6 for high ATP turnover (Kim et al., pp. 575-587).
