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.

The glycine residue appears ancestral as it is found in all known Brassicaceae FLS2 sequences Dunning et al. Rdsistance the evolutionary forces controlling the observed variation for flg22 perception is now warranted. This result, however, should be taken with care because we observed great variance in FLS2 transcript levels across experiments, which we could not explain.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception.

Molecular population genetics and the search for adaptive evolution in plants. The experiment was conducted in at least three independent biological trials. The level of diversity at FLS2 resembles that of R resistanc as it is clearly higher than diversity observed at strongly constrained signaling genes Bakker et al. The genotypes impaired in flg22 i sometimes show increased growth in the presence of flg22 Robatzek S, personal communicationand this was indeed observed for loss-of-function mutants.

We were interested in estimating whether variation in flg22 perception covaries with the response to other PAMP signals. We therefore have no evidence that different evolutionary forces act on the different regions or functional domains of the gene.

First, FLS2 function may maintain an optimal affinity to flagellin that maximizes bacterial detection despite individual variation in flagellin. Western blotting was performed as by Gohre et al.

In addition, strains carrying inactive flg22 variants, able to circumvent FLS2-mediated recognition, have been reported at various taxonomic levels, for example, Agrobacterium tumefaciens and among Xanthomonas campestris strains Felix et al. Therefore, we found no evidence for local adaptation at the FLS2 locus.

These responses are manifold and include the production of reactive oxygen species, the deposition of callose, the upregulation of defense genes, as well as the inhibition of seedling growth Boller and Felix Geographic variation in adaptation at the molecular level: Although the amino acid sequence of the Stor FLS2 differs from most other genotypes by more than one amino acid, the GE change is the only amino acid that differs from the FLS2 sequence of Yo-0, a genotype presenting an affinity for flg22 not different from most other genotypes fig.

Two distinct evolutionary dynamics can be envisaged for flg22 perception. This induced resistance seems to be independent of salicylic acid, jasmonic acid and ethylene signalling. We studied FLS2 functional variation by comparing flg22 binding, which solely depends on FLS2 and therefore serves as a sensitive and direct measure, within and between species.

However, a quantitative trait mapping analysis of the flgtriggered inhibition of seedling growth revealed that some of the variation in flg22 perception cosegregates with the FLS2 locus.

We therefore investigated how variation in flg22 binding may influence bacterial growth in planta. Heritability was estimated for seedlings fresh weight in absence and presence of flg This is potentially due to players in the pathway other than BAK1 such as, for example, the signaling mitogen-activated MAP kinases 3, 4, and 6 Boller and Felix Co-evolutionary interactions between host resistance and pathogen effector genes in flax rust disease.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception.

Thus, there is no fixed optimal level of flg22 binding either in the A. Plants and animals recognize microbial invaders by detecting pathogen-associated molecular patterns PAMPs such as flagellin.

Extending the analysis to a few more genotypes again highlighted the absence of a direct relationship between FLS2 mRNA abundance and flg22 binding. Novel exchangeable effector loci associated with the Pseudomonas syringae hrp pathogenicity island: Following the spread of an advantageous allele in a population, the number of haplotypes drops, the proportion of low-frequency variants increases, and there is an excess of derived variants segregating at high frequency Nielsen Hay for contributing seeds, G.

Spatial variation in disease resistance: However, the importance of flagellin perception for disease resistance has, until now, not been demonstrated.

These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law. However, our study also shows that evolution at the receptor locus alone does not explain the evolution of flagellin perception; instead, components common to pathways downstream of PAMP perception likely contribute to the observed quantitative variation.
