Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. Article ( PDF Available) in Nature () · May with. Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. PUBLISHED: Apr CITE AS: Nature. Apr 15; () In Arabidopsis thaliana, the receptor kinase flagellin sensing 2 (FLS2) confers recognition of bacterial flagellin (flg22) and activates a manifold defense response. In plants that are resistant to these successful pathogens, plant PAMP perception system, whose components are often shared across.

Provide sufficient details of any financial or flagellln competing interests to enable users to assess whether your comments might lead a reasonable person to question your impartiality. Thdough to flg22 induces an inhibition of seedling growth.

Alternatively, FLS2 could evolve so that its affinity for flagellin tracks the flagellin alleles with which it interacts. The N terminus of bacterial elongation factor Tu elicits innate immunity in Arabidopsis plants.

Ideally, the genetics of flgbinding variation should be established by QTL mapping, but the flgbinding assay is not amenable for such large-scale experiments. With the exception of Stor but see belowthe differences in FLS2 abundance match differences in flg22 binding fig. Bacterial numbers were not normally distributed; we therefore computed a nonparametric test perceptiob correlation, which did not control for population structure.

Altogether, these data demonstrate that flgelicited inhibition of seedling growth is regulated by the FLS2 locus sensu lato.

The full sequence 1— bp includes bp of noncoding upstream region, two exons, one intron, and ends at the first predicted recombination breakpoint. Institutional access Recommend FPrime to your librarian or information manager to request an extended free trial for all users at your institution.

To defend themselves, plants employ two layers of active defense Jones and Dangl Error bars in y direction represent resisttance technical replicates of two independent pools of 12 plants.

Extending the analysis to a few more genotypes again highlighted the absence of a direct relationship between FLS2 bacterkal abundance and flg22 binding. Low levels of polymorphism in genes that control the activation of defense response in Arabidopsis thaliana. It arabidopsiss actually known that FLS2 is under the control of complex regulatory loops at both the transcript and protein level Robatzek et al.

Altogether, this analysis suggests that, if selection has really acted on the FLS2 locus, we are not in the presence of a simple scenario of positive selection on the phenotypes triggered by flg22 binding on the FLS2 receptor. We further compared the relationship between flg22 binding reported in figure 1 and flgelicited inhibition of seedling growth. This association was also performed for each amino acid change but it failed to identify single changes explaining any of the two measures.


We measured specific binding using a radioactive-labeled flg22 peptide and assessed 45 genotypes of A. This correlation demonstrates that higher levels of flg22 binding associates with reduced Pto DC proliferation.

Heritability was estimated for seedlings fresh weight in absence and presence of flg Among distantly related species, it is known that the specificity of ligand recognition can change Chinchilla et al.

Flg22 binding, as measured in figure 1correlates with flgtriggered inhibition of seedling growth in Arabidopsis thaliana flagelpin. Classified as close New Finding 2.

I would like to receive updates when further comments, recommendations, or dissenting opinions are publishing on this article. In addition, the action of natural selection was observed along some of the phylogenetic branches, but no consistent signature of diversifying selection was detected Wlasiuk et al.

Pattern recognition receptors require N-glycosylation to mediate plant immunity.

Felix for flg22 peptide variants, R. These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law. Within and among close relatives, PAMP perception evolves quantitatively, which contrasts with the changes in recognition typically associated with the flagellni of R genes.

Finally, an example of adaptive changes in the strength of immune responses, causing genetic incompatibilities and compromising plant growth at low temperature, has been reported Alcazar et al.

There is indeed tremendous diversity among pathogen strains in the effectors that they harbor Charity et al. Don’t have an account?

The rates of synonymous and nonsynonymous polymorphism were in line with the rates of fixed synonymous and nonsynonymous differences observed between species bacrerial.

Indeed, QTL mapping revealed that variation in flginduced seedling growth inhibition colocalized with the FLS2 locus. Although the corresponding flg22 peptide of the Pto DC strain differs from the peptide used in the assay of flg22 binding by four amino acid residues in the N-terminal part, it still elicits a strong FLS2-mediated defense response Felix et al.

At the functional level, two alternative scenarios can be anticipated for the FLS2 locus, depending on the spectrum of microbial strains to be detected: At the molecular level, the evolution of the FLS2 locus may undergo very strong constraint preventing amino acid diversification. The maintenance of extreme amino acid diversity at the disease resistance gene, RPP13, in Arabidopsis thaliana.

This method controls for nonspecific binding of flg Despite this caveat, this experiment shows that variation in flgbinding activity reflects variation in abundance of the FLS2 receptor. Coomassie staining is shown as control for equal loading. This entry form currently does not support special characters. Consider the following examples, but note that this is not an exhaustive list:.
