A class of plants within the Bryophyta comprising the mosses, which are found in both damp (including freshwater) and drier situations. Mosses possess erect or prostrate leafless stems, which give rise to leafless stalks bearing capsules. Spores formed in the capsules are released and grow to produce new plants. (Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990). Many small plants bearing the name moss are in fact not mosses. The "moss" found on the north side of trees is actually a green alga (CHLOROPHYTA). Irish moss is really a red alga (RHODOPHYTA). Beard lichen (beard moss), Iceland moss, oak moss, and reindeer moss are actually LICHENS. Spanish moss is a common name for both LICHENS and an air plant (TILLANDSIA usneoides) of the pineapple family. Club moss is an evergreen herb of the family LYCOPODIACEAE.

Particle bombardment mediated transformation and GFP expression in the moss Physcomitrella patens. (1/279)

There are few plants facilitated for the study of development, morphogenesis and gene expression at the cellular level. The moss Physcomitrella patens can be a very useful plant with several advantages: simple life cycle containing a major haploid gametophyte stage, easy manipulation, small genome size (6 x 10(8) bp) and high similarities with higher plants. To establish the transformation system of mosses as a model for basic plant research, a series of experiments were performed. Mosses were cultured in cellophane overlaid BCD media, transformed by particle bombardment and selected by the choice of appropriate antibiotics. Initial transformants appeared 8 d or 14 d after selection, showing different sensitivities toward the antibiotics used. Heat treatment during the preparation of particles revealed that denaturing the DNA enabled a more efficient way to deliver a transgene into the chromosome. This was proven by the increase in the number of transformants by five times in the plants with denatured DNA. In the test for the repairing capacity of mosses, 154 and 195 transformants survived from 1 d and 3 d incubations, respectively, indicating that a longer period of incubation seemed to be recommendable for better survival. The selected transformants were further analyzed at the DNA and expression level. Transformed genes were confirmed by PCR where all the transformants showed the expected size of amplification. Histochemical beta-glucuronidase (GUS) and green fluorescent protein (GFP) expression also confirmed the integration of exogenous DNA. In a comparison of the two different forms of GFP, soluble-modified GFP (smGFP) expressed stronger signals than modified GFP (mGFP) due to its improved solubility. Confirmation of the transgene in the chloroplast transformation has improved the applicability of moss as a model system for the study of basic biological researches.  (+info)

The diversification of plant cytosolic small heat shock proteins preceded the divergence of mosses. (2/279)

A cDNA library was constructed with mRNA isolated from heat-stressed cell cultures of Funaria hygrometrica (Bryophyta, Musci, Funariaceae). cDNA clones encoding six cytosolic small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) were identified using differential screening. Phylogenetic analysis of these sHSP sequences with other known sHSPs identified them as members of the previously described higher plant cytosolic class I and II families. Four of the F. hygrometrica sHSPs are members of the cytosolic class I family, and the other two are members of the cytosolic class II family. The presence of members of the cytosolic I and II sHSP families in a bryophyte indicates that these gene families are ancient, and evolved at least 450 MYA. This result also indicates that the plant sHSP gene families duplicated much earlier than did the well-studied phytochrome gene family. Members of the cytosolic I and II sHSP families are developmentally regulated in seeds and flowers in higher plants. Our findings show that the two cytosolic sHSP families evolved before the appearance of these specialized structures. Previous analysis of angiosperm sHSPs had identified class- or family-specific amino acid consensus regions and determined that rate heterogeneity exists among the different sHSP families. The analysis of the F. hygrometrica sHSP sequences reveals patterns and rates of evolution distinct from those seen among angiosperm sHSPs. Some, but not all, of the amino acid consensus regions identified in seed plants are conserved in the F. hygrometrica sHSPs. Taken together, the results of this study illuminate the evolution of the sHSP gene families and illustrate the importance of including representatives of basal land plant lineages in plant molecular evolutionary studies.  (+info)

Multiubiquitin chain binding subunit MCB1 (RPN10) of the 26S proteasome is essential for developmental progression in Physcomitrella patens. (3/279)

The 26S proteasome, a multisubunit complex, is the primary protease of the ubiquitin-mediated proteolytic system in eukaryotes. We have recently characterized MCB1 (RPN10), a subunit of the 26S complex that has affinity for multiubiquitin chains in vitro and as a result may function as a receptor for ubiquitinated substrates. To define the role of MCB1 further, we analyzed its function in Physcomitrella patens by generating MCB1 gene disruptions using homologous recombination. PpMCB1, which is 50 to 75% similar to orthologs from other eukaryotes, is present in the 26S proteasome complex and has a similar affinity for multiubiquitin chains, using a conserved hydrophobic domain within the C-terminal half of the polypeptide. Unlike yeast Deltamcb1 strains, which grow normally, P. patens Deltamcb1 strains are viable but are under developmental arrest, generating abnormal caulonema that are unable to form buds and gametophores. Treatment with auxin and cytokinin restored bud formation and subsequent partial development of gametophores. Complementation of a Deltamcb1 strain with mutated versions of PpMCB1 revealed that the multiubiquitin chain binding site is not essential for the wild-type phenotype. These results show that MCB1 has an important function in the 26S proteasome of higher order eukaryotes in addition to its ability to bind multiubiquitin chains, and they provide further support for a role of the ubiquitin/26S proteasome proteolytic pathway in plant developmental processes triggered by hormones.  (+info)

Molecular phylogenetic analysis among bryophytes and tracheophytes based on combined data of plastid coded genes and the 18S rRNA gene. (4/279)

The basal relationship of bryophytes and tracheophytes is problematic in land plant phylogeny. In addition to cladistic analyses of morphological data, molecular phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene and the plastic gene rbcL have been performed, but no confident conclusions have been reached. Using the maximum-likelihood (ML) method, we analyzed 4,563 bp of aligned sequences from plastid protein-coding genes and 1,680 bp from the nuclear 18S rRNA gene. In the ML tree of deduced amino acid sequences of the plastid genes, hornworts were basal among the land plants, while mosses and liverworts each formed a clade and were sister to each other. Total-evidence evaluation of rRNA data and plastid protein-coding genes by TOTALML had an almost identical result.  (+info)

Isolation of a germin-like protein with manganese superoxide dismutase activity from cells of a moss, Barbula unguiculata. (5/279)

A novel extracellular Mn-superoxide dismutase (SOD) was isolated from a moss, Barbula unguiculata. The SOD was a glycoprotein; the apparent molecular mass of its native form was 120 kDa, as estimated by gel filtration chromatography, and that of its monomer was 22,072 Da, as estimated by time of flight mass spectroscopy. The protein had manganese with a stoichiometry of 0.80 Mn/monomer. The cDNA clone for a gene encoding the extracellular Mn-SOD was isolated. Sequence analysis showed that it has a strong similarity to germin (oxalate oxidase) and germin-like proteins (GLPs) of several plant species and possesses all the characteristic features of members of the germin family. The clone encoding this extracellular Mn-SOD was therefore designated B. unguiculata GLP (BuGLP). BuGLP had no oxalate oxidase activity. In addition, the cDNA for a gene encoding the moss mitochondrial Mn-SOD was isolated. Its amino acid sequence had little similarity to that of BuGLP, even though a close similarity was observed among the mitochondrial Mn-SODs of various organisms. BuGLP was the first germin-like protein that was really demonstrated to be a metalloprotein with Mn-SOD activity but no oxalate oxidase activity.  (+info)

Tagged mutagenesis and gene-trap in the moss, Physcomitrella patens by shuttle mutagenesis. (6/279)

The moss, Physcomitrella patens has been used as a useful material in many fields, because of its simple body plan, ease of gene targeting, and other reasons. Although many mutants have been reported, no method to isolate the corresponding genes was reported. We developed a gene tagging and gene-trap system in P. patens by using the shuttle mutagenesis technique, which has been used in the budding yeast. In 5264 tagged lines, 203 mutants with altered developmental or morphological phenotypes were obtained. In 129 of 4757 gene-trap lines, beta-glucuronidase (GUS) activity was detected in some tissue. Although multiple copies of a tag were detected in many tagged lines by Southern analyses, most copies are likely integrated at the same locus according to PCR analyses.  (+info)

A bifunctional delta-fatty acyl acetylenase/desaturase from the moss Ceratodon purpureus. A new member of the cytochrome b5 superfamily. (7/279)

Many plant genes have been cloned that encode regioselective desaturases catalyzing the formation of cis-unsaturated fatty acids. However, very few genes have been cloned that encode enzymes catalyzing the formation of the functional groups found in unusual fatty acids (e.g. hydroxy, epoxy or acetylenic fatty acids). Here, we describe the characterization of an acetylenase from the moss Ceratodon purpureus with a regioselectivity differing from the previously described Delta12-acetylenase. The gene encoding this protein, together with a Delta6-desaturase, was cloned by a PCR-based approach with primers derived from conserved regions in Delta5-, Delta6-fatty-acid desaturases and Delta8-sphingolipid desaturases. The proteins that are encoded by the two cloned cDNAs are likely to consist of a N-terminal extension of unknown function, a cytochrome b5-domain, and a C-terminal domain that is similar to acyl lipid desaturases with characteristic histidine boxes. The proteins were highly homologous in sequence to the Delta6-desaturase from the moss Physcomitrella patens. When these two cDNAs were expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, both transgenic yeast cultures desaturated Delta9-unsaturated C16- and C18-fatty acids by inserting an additional Delta6cis-double bond. One of these transgenic yeast clones was also able to introduce a Delta6-triple bond into gamma-linolenic and stearidonic acid. This resulted in the formation of 9,12,15-(Z,Z,Z)-octadecatrien-6-ynoic acid, the main fatty acid found in C. pupureus. These results demonstrate that the Delta6-acetylenase from C. pupureus is a bifunctional enzyme, which can introduce a Delta6cis-double bond into 9,12,(15)-C18-polyenoic acids as well as converting a Delta6cis-double bond to a Delta6-triple bond.  (+info)

The translational apparatus of Tortula ruralis: polysomal retention of transcripts encoding the ribosomal proteins RPS14, RPS16 and RPL23 in desiccated and rehydrated gametophytes. (8/279)

Tortula ruralis (Syntrichia ruralis) is an important model system for the study of plant vegetative desiccation tolerance. One of the most intriguing aspects of desiccation-tolerant plants is the maintenance of key cellular components in stable and viable forms in the desiccated state, particularly those related to the translational apparatus (i.e. ribosomes and ribosomal RNAs). This study investigated the third integral component of the translational apparatus, the ribosomal proteins. Three T. ruralis cDNAs encoding predicted polypeptides with significant similarity to ribosomal proteins were isolated from a cDNA expression library derived from the polysomal, messenger ribonucleoprotein particle (mRNP) fraction of desiccated gametophytes; Rps14 and Rps16 encode the small-subunit ribosomal proteins RPS14 and RPS16, respectively, and Rpl23 encodes the large-subunit ribosomal protein RPL23. RPS14, RPS16 and RPL23, the deduced polypeptides, have predicted molecular masses of 14.4 kDa, 16.2 kDa and 14.9 kDa and predicted pI's of 11.08, 10.34 and 10. 67, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis of the deduced amino acid sequences demonstrated that each of the T. ruralis proteins is most similar to ribosomal proteins from higher plants even though RPS14 and RPL23 show high divergence from their other plant counterparts. RNA blot hybridizations of RNAs present within the polysomal mRNP fraction (i.e. the 100 Kxg pellet) demonstrated that Rps14, Rps16 and Rpl23 are expressed in moss gametophytes during a desiccation-rehydration cycle and, according to the prior cDNA classification scheme in T. ruralis, are constitutive clones. These findings clearly demonstrated that Rps14, Rps16 and Rpl23 transcripts are retained within the polysomal fractions of desiccated gametophytes.  (+info)

Bryopsida is a class within the division Bryophyta, which includes the mosses. It is a large and diverse group that contains the majority of moss species. Members of this class are characterized by their stalked, spore-producing structures called sporangia, which are typically borne on specialized leaves called perichaetial leaves. The spores produced within these sporangia are released and can germinate to form new moss individuals.

It is important to note that the classification of plants, including mosses, has undergone significant revisions in recent years, and some sources may use different terminology or groupings than what is described here. However, Bryopsida remains a widely recognized and well-established class within the mosses.

The sampling of Macrophytes was performed through the application of the sampling and analysis protocol for Macrophytes (INAG 2008) developed to assess the biological quality of rivers within the scope of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) application. Inventories were carried out at the selected locations in the shortest possible time, to increase the comparability of the results. The field inventory was based on the percentage coverage of each species in relation to the total area sampled (limited by the river corridor, defined by the limit of ordinary floods). The work was carried out along the watercourse, including submerged and emerged beds and embankments. The allocation of the surface cover of each species was determined by imagining the individuals of each taxon grouped in the same area, at one end of the sampling section, in order to facilitate the estimation of the percentage area. More specifically, the vegetation was inventoried in discrete 100 m longitudinal units. Taxa of unknown ...

Calymperes afzelii, which is also known as Afzels Calymperes Moss. #Mosses
The nucleotide sequence flanking the translation initiation codon (start codon context) affects the translational efficiency of eukaryotic mRNAs, and may indicate the presence of an alternative translation initiation site (TIS) to produce proteins with different properties. Multi-targeting may reflect the translational variability of these other protein forms. In this paper we present a web server that performs computations to investigate the usage of alternative translation initiation sites for the synthesis of new protein variants that might have different functions. An efficient web-based tool entitled TISs-ST (T ranslation I nitiation S ites and S ecretory T argets) evaluates putative translation initiation sites and indicates the prediction of a signal peptide of the protein encoded from this site. The TISs-ST web server is freely available to both academic and commercial users and can be accessed at http://ipe.cbmeg.unicamp.br/pub/TISs-ST . The program can be used to evaluate alternative
