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.

Boxes represent the median, lower, and upper quartile; circles show data points lying outside of the 1. We estimated the heritability for seedling growth in the absence and presence of flg Gray bars indicate where recombination events are predicted to have occurred.

You are an Editor for the journal in which the article is published. 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.

Pathogen infection often imposes severe selection pressure for plant resistance by reducing plant growth and yield. None of them colocalized with BAK1but we do not know whether there bacterual genetic variability between parents at the BAK1 locus.

Our study reveals that FLS2 displays an evolutionary history that can be described as intermediate. Next, differential growth was calculated for each RIL line as described above for inhibition of seedlings growth, and the quantitative trait loci QTLs controlling its variation were mapped.

Since this second line of defense requires a perfect matching between the R protein in a plant and the cognate effector in the pathogen, it is referred to as a gene-for-gene interaction. We then asked whether variation in flg22 perception was specific to A. Even though simulations have shown that compound tests, which combine the properties of summary statistics, are not easily confounded by demographic effects Zeng et al.

RNA was extracted from each of 10—12 independent seedlings in two biological independent trials.

The glycine residue appears ancestral as it is found in all known Brassicaceae FLS2 sequences Dunning et al.


Much is known about the evolution of plant immunity components directed against specific pathogen strains: Pleiotropy modulates the efficacy of selection in Drosophila melanogaster. The HKA test compares the ratio of intraspecific polymorphism to interspecific divergence in two loci.

The recent indication that FLS2 may trigger immunity in response to two additional signals, the endogenous peptide CLV3p and the bacterial effector Ax21 Danna et al. Consider the following examples, but note that this is not an exhaustive list:. Wild-type and fls2 mutants both display enhanced resistance when treated with crude bacterial extracts, even devoid of elicitor-active flagellin, indicating the existence of functional perception systems for PAMPs other than flagellin.

Specific binding to flg22 to Arabidopsis thalianaArabidopsis lyrataCardamine hirsuta, and Brassicaceae species. Such approaches can therefore help tell whether natural selection maintains allelic variation at the FLS2 locus in A.

A renaissance of elicitors: A stop codon polymorphism of Toll-like receptor 5 is associated with resistance to systemic lupus erythematosus. It is based on the prediction that, for a particular region of the genome, the rate of divergence between species is proportional to the levels of polymorphism within species Hudson et al.

The genotype Ws-0 is known to carry a non-functional FLS2 allele and was used as througn negative control Zipfel et al. Thorugh such a scenario, nucleotide variation at the FLS2 receptor would be expected to display some signature of natural selection, just as was reported for some R proteins and display signs of accelerated amino acid evolution in the LRR ectodomain.

Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. These data altogether show that the intensity of flg22 binding correlates positively with the severity of one of the responses triggered after FLS2 activation. We measured specific binding using a radioactive-labeled flg22 peptide and assessed 45 genotypes of A. Flagellin is not a major defense elicitor in Ralstonia solanacearum cells or extracts applied to Arabidopsis thaliana.

This correlation demonstrates that higher levels of flg22 binding associates with reduced Pto DC proliferation. Here we show that treatment of plants with flg22, a peptide representing the elicitor-active epitope of flagellin, induces the expression of numerous defence-related genes and triggers resistance to pathogenic bacteria in wild-type plants, but not in plants carrying mutations in the flagellin receptor gene FLS2. However, plants are effectively protected against most microbes by generalist immunity components that detect conserved pathogen-associated molecular patterns PAMPs and control the onset of PAMP-triggered immunity.


Our study of flgbinding variation, however, has not detected a major shift in affinity for flg22 since the divergence between A.

This suggests that one or several molecular variant s common to the two systems control some of the functional variation of PRRs. The observed variation correlates with both the severity of elicited defense responses and bacterial proliferation. Immunoblot analysis of whole protein extracts was conducted to compare FLS2 protein abundance within groups of A.

This is somewhat surprising given that the parental alleles presented greater differences in flg22 binding. F does not store recipient email addresses. As a receptor kinase, FLS2 foagellin composed of a Leucine-rich repeat LRR ectodomain, a dsease transmembrane domain, and a cytosolic kinase domain and is solely responsible for binding flg22 Chinchilla et al.

Since fresh weight of individual genotypes presented a relatively low heritability, the QTLs at the FLS2 locus explain a nonnegligible part of the genetic variation segregating between parental strains.
