Regulation of 2-carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate phosphatase: activation by glutathione and interaction with thiol reagents. (1/9955)

2-Carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate (CA1P) phosphatase de- grades CA1P, an inhibitor associated with the regulation of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase in numerous plant species. CA1P phosphatase purified from Phaseolus vulgaris was partially inactivated by oxidizing conditions during dialysis in air-equilibrated buffer. Phosphatase activity could then be stimulated 1.3-fold by dithiothreitol and also by addition of reduced thioredoxin from Escherichia coli. These effects were enhanced synergistically by the positive effector, fructose 1, 6-bisphosphate (FBP). Most notably, CA1P phosphatase activity was stimulated up to 35-fold by glutathione, and was sensitive to the ratio of reduced (GSH) to oxidized (GSSG) forms. At concentrations of glutathione approximating measured levels in chloroplasts of P. vulgaris (5 mM total S), CA1P phosphatase exhibited >20-fold stimulation by a change in the redox status of glutathione from 60 to 100% GSH. This stimulation was augmented further by reduced E. coli thioredoxin. In contrast, FBP, which activates CA1P phosphatase under reducing conditions, was strongly inhibitory in the presence of GSSG. We propose that glutathione may have an appreciable role in the light/dark regulation of CA1P phosphatase in vivo. A model for the reversible activation of CA1P phosphatase by GSH was derived based upon the various responses of the enzyme's activity to a range of thiol reagents including N-ethylmaleimide, 5, 5'-dithiobis-(2-nitrobenzoic acid) and arsenite. These data indicate that the bean enzyme contains two physically distinct sets of thiol groups that are critical to its redox regulation.  (+info)

The localisation of 2-carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate and inhibition of Rubisco in leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris L. (2/9955)

A recent controversial report suggests that the nocturnal inhibitor of Rubisco, 2-carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate (CAIP), does not bind to Rubisco in vivo and therefore that CA1P has no physiological relevance to photosynthetic regulation. It is now proved that a direct rapid assay can be used to distinguish between Rubisco-bound and free CA1P, as postulated in the controversial report. Application of this direct assay demonstrates that CA1P is bound to Rubisco in vivo in dark-adapted leaves. Furthermore, CA1P is shown to be in the chloroplasts of mesophyll cells. Thus, CA1P does play a physiological role in the regulation of Rubisco.  (+info)

The internal Cys-207 of sorghum leaf NADP-malate dehydrogenase can form mixed disulphides with thioredoxin. (3/9955)

The role of the internal Cys-207 of sorghum NADP-malate dehydrogenase (NADP-MDH) in the activation of the enzyme has been investigated through the examination of the ability of this residue to form mixed disulphides with thioredoxin mutated at either of its two active-site cysteines. The h-type Chlamydomonas thioredoxin was used, because it has no additional cysteines in the primary sequence besides the active-site cysteines. Both thioredoxin mutants proved equally efficient in forming mixed disulphides with an NADP-MDH devoid of its N-terminal bridge either by truncation, or by mutation of its N-terminal cysteines. They were poorly efficient with the more compact WT oxidised NADP-MDH. Upon mutation of Cys-207, no mixed disulphide could be formed, showing that this cysteine is the only one, among the four internal cysteines, which can form mixed disulphides with thioredoxin. These experiments confirm that the opening of the N-terminal disulphide loosens the interaction between subunits, making Cys-207, located at the dimer contact area, more accessible.  (+info)

Thiol-dependent degradation of protoporphyrin IX by plant peroxidases. (4/9955)

Protoporphyrin IX (PP) is the last porphyrin intermediate in common between heme and chlorophyll biosynthesis. This pigment normally does not accumulate in plants because its highly photodynamic nature makes it toxic. While the steps leading to heme and chlorophylls are well characterized, relatively little is known of the metabolic fate of excess PP in plants. We have discovered that plant peroxidases can rapidly degrade this pigment in the presence of thiol-containing substrates such as glutathione and cysteine. This thiol-dependent degradation of PP by horseradish peroxidase consumes oxygen and is inhibited by ascorbic acid.  (+info)

Expression of alfalfa mosaic virus coat protein in tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) deficient in the production of its native coat protein supports long-distance movement of a chimeric TMV. (5/9955)

Alfalfa mosaic virus (AlMV) coat protein is involved in systemic infection of host plants, and a specific mutation in this gene prevents the virus from moving into the upper uninoculated leaves. The coat protein also is required for different viral functions during early and late infection. To study the role of the coat protein in long-distance movement of AlMV independent of other vital functions during virus infection, we cloned the gene encoding the coat protein of AlMV into a tobacco mosaic virus (TMV)-based vector Av. This vector is deficient in long-distance movement and is limited to locally inoculated leaves because of the lack of native TMV coat protein. Expression of AlMV coat protein, directed by the subgenomic promoter of TMV coat protein in Av, supported systemic infection with the chimeric virus in Nicotiana benthamiana, Nicotiana tabacum MD609, and Spinacia oleracea. The host range of TMV was extended to include spinach as a permissive host. Here we report the alteration of a host range by incorporating genetic determinants from another virus.  (+info)

Cytokinin activation of Arabidopsis cell division through a D-type cyclin. (6/9955)

Cytokinins are plant hormones that regulate plant cell division. The D-type cyclin CycD3 was found to be elevated in a mutant of Arabidopsis with a high level of cytokinin and to be rapidly induced by cytokinin application in both cell cultures and whole plants. Constitutive expression of CycD3 in transgenic plants allowed induction and maintenance of cell division in the absence of exogenous cytokinin. Results suggest that cytokinin activates Arabidopsis cell division through induction of CycD3 at the G1-S cell cycle phase transition.  (+info)

Cloning and expression of a wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) phosphatidylserine synthase cDNA. Overexpression in plants alters the composition of phospholipids. (7/9955)

We describe the cloning of a wheat cDNA (TaPSS1) that encodes a phosphatidylserine synthase (PSS) and provides the first strong evidence for the existence of this enzyme in a higher eukaryotic cell. The cDNA was isolated on its ability to confer increased resistance to aluminum toxicity when expressed in yeast. The sequence of the predicted protein encoded by TaPSS1 shows homology to PSS from both yeast and bacteria but is distinct from the animal PSS enzymes that catalyze base-exchange reactions. In wheat, Southern blot analysis identified the presence of a small family of genes that cross-hybridized to TaPSS1, and Northern blots showed that aluminum induced TaPSS1 expression in root apices. Expression of TaPSS1 complemented the yeast cho1 mutant that lacks PSS activity and altered the phospholipid composition of wild type yeast, with the most marked effect being increased abundance of phosphatidylserine (PS). Arabidopsis thaliana leaves overexpressing TaPSS1 showed a marked enhancement in PSS activity, which was associated with increased biosynthesis of PS at the expense of both phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylglycerol. Unlike mammalian cells where PS accumulation is tightly regulated even when the capacity for PS biosynthesis is increased, plant cells accumulated large amounts of PS when TaPSS1 was overexpressed. High levels of TaPSS1 expression in Arabidopsis and tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) led to the appearance of necrotic lesions on leaves, which may have resulted from the excessive accumulation of PS. The cloning of TaPSS1 now provides evidence that the yeast pathway for PS synthesis exists in some plant tissues and provides a tool for understanding the pathways of phospholipid biosynthesis and their regulation in plants.  (+info)

Antisense expression of the CK2 alpha-subunit gene in Arabidopsis. Effects on light-regulated gene expression and plant growth. (8/9955)

The protein kinase CK2 (formerly casein kinase II) is thought to be involved in light-regulated gene expression in plants because of its ability to phosphorylate transcription factors that bind to the promoter regions of light-regulated genes in vitro. To address this possibility in vivo and to learn more about the potential physiological roles of CK2 in plants, we transformed Arabidopsis with an antisense construct of the CK2 alpha-subunit gene and investigated both morphological and molecular phenotypes. Antisense transformants had a smaller adult leaf size and showed increased expression of chs in darkness and of cab and rbcS after red-light treatment. The latter molecular phenotype implied that CK2 might serve as one of several negative and quantitative effectors in light-regulated gene expression. The possible mechanism of CK2 action and its involvement in the phytochrome signal transduction pathway are discussed.  (+info)

The dominant character of leaf size varies with different genetic models and leaf positions. In Model 1, the dominant characters of top and lower leaves are small size, but for the middle leaves it is large size. In Model 2, large size is dominant for three types of leaves. In Model 3, small size is dominant for the top and middle leaves, but recessive for lower leaves. In Model 4, small size is dominant in the top and lower leaves, but recessive in the middle leaves (Table 6). Therefore, we can not conclude and illustrate the inheritance of leaf size for tobacco leaves. Leaf size was determined by genetics and environment (Gurevitch, 1992); hence it may be suitable to illustrate the genetic mechanism for leaf size in a fixed position of single leaf, or increase the number of planted locations to increase the generational mean. This would allow us to estimate the effect of genetic-environmental interaction and understand the inheritance of leaf size.. Genetic Models and Inheritance of Leaf ...
Leaf abscission and foliation responses to water stress were studied in potted plants of five Populus clones grown in a greenhouse. As predawn leaf water potential (Ψ1) fell to -3 MPa, drought-induced leaf abscission increased progressively to 30% for data pooled across clones. As predawn Ψ1 fell below -3 MPa, drought-related abscission was about 50%. When combined with abscission rates in well-watered "phenological control" plants, abscission exceeded 80-90% in the most severely water-stressed plants. Clonal variation in water stress-induced abscission was statistically significant, but appeared to be confounded with clonal differences in leaf loss in control plants. Production of new leaf area ranged from 0 to 1,389 cm². Pooled across clones, maximum production of leaf area occurred in plants previously subjected to moderate water stress (-0.5 to -0.75 MPa). This stimulation of leaf development was associated with greater areas of individual leaves. At predawn Ψ1 < -2 MPa leaf area ...
The degree of photoinhibition of photosynthesis was compared between vertical (leaf angle 80° from the horizontal) and horizontal (leaf angle 0°) winter wheat ( Triticum aestivum ) leaves subjected to midday strong light stress under field conditions.This was done by measuring the PSⅡ photochemical efficiency (Fv/Fm) and the apparent quantum yield (AQY).On a clear day with maximum light level above 1600 μmol·m -2 ·s -1 and maximum leaf temperature 37.6℃,the Fv/Fm and AQY of the horizontal leaves were much lower than those of the vertical leaves after exposure to midday strong light for 4 hours,showing a more severe photoinhibition developed in horizontal leaves.Since the differences in leaf water potential and leaf temperature were negligible between horizontal and vertical leaves,the light intensity was the only factor causing difference in the degree of photoinhibition.On clear days with maximum leaf temperature 34.5℃,no difference in the extent of photoinhibition was observed

Plant leaves and their vascular patterns not only provide some of the most impressive examples of complexity in the nature that surrounds us, but they are also a wonderful system for studying developmental dynamics. In my talk I will focus on the development of leaf primary vein in the growing leaf primordia of Arabadopsis Thaliana, a plant model system. Leaf primary vein is the first in a successive order of branched veins, to emerge in a growing leaf primordia. The development of leaf primary vein starts with very few cells which also synthesize auxin, a growth hormone that regulates both plant and leaf vascular development. The final morphology of primary vein, consists of only a thin strand of distinctively elongated primary vein cells. I will present a cell based model, that describes the formation and morphology of leaf primary vein in early stages of growing leaf primordia. The model captures the interplay between biochemistry and cell mechanics by simulating the tissue growth driven by ...

Leaves are composed of a leaf blade, a broad flat structure that is specialized for photosynthesis, and a petiole, a stem-like structure that attaches the blade to the stem. A prominent feature of the leaf blade is its thick central midrib, which extends from the petiole and contains vascular tissues as well as enlarged supporting cells on the abaxial surface of the leaf. Surrounding the midrib is the lamina, which consists of patterned arrays of specialized cell types. Efforts in many labs to identify the molecules that are essential for normal leaf development are beginning to elucidate the pathways that are required for formation of a normal leaf, however, much information is still lacking.. Leaf primordia arise as radial pegs on the flank of the shoot apical meristem (SAM), and become flattened early in development, indicating acquisition of abaxial/adaxial polarity. These steps are rapidly followed by the outgrowth of the leaf blade and differentiation of specialized cell types (Pyke et ...

The new leaves that come up are of light colour and as the leaves mature the leaves turn to a darker shade of green. The plant can be grown in the centre or corner of your garden to create a focal point in your landscaped garden. It will also act as a privacy screen when grown in a window box or on your window sill. ...
Abnormal yellowing of leaf tissue is called chlorosis. Leaves lack the essential green pigment chlorophyll. Possible causes include poor drainage, damaged roots, compacted roots, high soil pH, and nutrient deficiencies in the plant according to James Schuster University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator.. Nutrient deficiencies may occur due to insufficient amount in the soil or because the nutrients are unavailable due to high pH soil. Or nutrients may not be absorbed due to injured roots or poor root growth. Plant requirements also vary in the amount of 17 essential nutrients needed.. Herbaceous and woody plants are susceptible to chlorosis. It usually starts as lighter green tissue between darker green leaf veins. Not only does the plant look unattractive, but leaves or entire plant may be stunted and may fail to produce flowers and fruit. In addition, chlorotic leaves are more prone to scorching and leaf diseases. With severe chlorosis the leaves, affected branch, or entire plant ...
The organelles which contain chlorophyll, called plastids, need light in order to complete the synthesis and activation of chlorophyll, which together with other pigments then absorb most wavelengths of light excepting those in the green wave bands - this results in the light reflected from leaves being relatively enriched in green wavelengths and therefore appear to be green to us. In the absence of chlorophyll or another pigment light reflected off the surface of a leaf is not enriched in any particular wavelengths and thus appears to be white Or nearly so (often cream or pale yellow). Leaves can appear white when they lack a gene to synthesise the chlorophyll pigment, which may be apparent only in part of a so-called variegated leaf. Leaf miners which eat the chlorophyll-containing tissues inside a leaf may also leave white trails across the surface of a leaf. Lack of critical nutrients may prevent a leaf from making chlorophyll, which can result in a leaf with yellow or white blotches on it, ...

With so many leaves on a single tree it is inevitable that some will shade others. If a leaf is constantly shaded it will be discarded by the tree. If there is some sunlight however, even a little diffuse light (see below), then a tree makes the most of it by producing shade leaves lower down in its canopy. Shade leaves are larger and thinner than normal sun leaves, and often appear a darker green (they contain more chlorophyll). They also have half as many stomata than sun leaves, or even fewer, and so have a lower respiration rate. They can react quickly to brief bursts of sunlight and dappled shade.. Shade leaves can turn into sun leaves and visa versa; providing that the change is gradual. This is something that a gardener moving a plant outside that has been grown indoors or in the greenhouse, must be aware of. When a plant is taken outdoors, place it first under shade and gradually over several days increase its exposure to bright sunlight.. Trees are efficient in their architecture. Look ...
When choosing a hybrid and population for narrow rows, consider leaf architecture and ear type. There are essentially three types of leaves--upright, pendulum and semi-upright. · Upright-leaf hybrids grow straight up like a pineapple; in high populations an upright leaf structure lets sunlight reach deeper into the canopy, to increase photosynthesis. Upright leaves maximize photosynthesis when high populations are planted in narrow rows.. · Pendulum hybrid leaves are suited for lower populations, to decrease water loss by evaporation while maintaining photosynthetic activity. Pendulum-leaf hybrids flop out and intercept sunlight like solar panels, capturing light before it gets down low in the canopy. · Semi-upright hybrids have upper leaves that are more upright in structure and the lower leaves more pendulum.. Along with deciding which leaf architecture you need, look at ear type. Determinate-ear hybrids change their ear size very little, so you have to plant them at the higher end of the ...
This BBC video clip introduces the role of stomata, with the surface structure of a leaf observed using increasingly larger magnifications.This can be used as an introduction to leaf structure and then developed into a discussion of the other features of a leaf and how it is adapted for efficient photosynthesis.
Although the leaves of different plants vary in their overall shape, most leaves are rather similar in their internal anatomy. Leaves generally consist of epidermal tissue on the upper and lower surfaces and mesophyll tissue throughout the body. Epidermal cells have two features that prevent the plant from losing water: they are packed densely together and they are covered by a cuticle (a waxy layer secreted by the cells). The epidermis usually consists of a single layer of cells, although the specialized leaves of some desert plants have epidermal layers that are several cells thick. The epidermis contains small pores called stomata, which are mostly found on the lower leaf surface. Each individual stoma (pore) is surrounded by a pair of specialized guard cells. In most species, the guard cells close their stomata during the night (and during times of drought) to prevent water loss. During the day, the guard cells open their stomata so they can take in carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and give ...
This article was originally written as a guest post for The Paleo Mom: FROM NEW LEAF: This is a fantastically written article about T Helper 1 & 2 cells and how Auto-Immune is linked, which disorders are considered T Helper 1 or 2 dominant. All of which we treat at New Leaf Natural Therapies. Those that suffer from autoimmune disease commonly experience symptoms that stem from imbalances within the functioning of their immune system. There are many factors that can influence this balance - stress, nutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, gut flora, and allergies, among others. This way of looking at autoimmune disease is a growing trend in the alternative field, highlighted through the work of Datis Kharrazian.. What are Th1 and Th2?.

In the fading twilight on the rainforest floor, a plants leaves glimmer iridescent blue. And now scientists know why. These exotic blue leaves pull more energy out of dim light than ordinary leaves because of an odd trick of quantum mechanics.. A team of plant scientists led by Heather Whitney of the University of Bristol in the U.K. has just discovered the remarkable origin and purpose of the shiny cobalt leaves on the Malaysian tropical plant Begonia pavonina. The plant owes its glimmer to its peculiar machinery for photosynthesis, the process plants use to turn light into chemical energy. Strangely enough, these blue leaves can squeeze more energy out of the red-green light that reaches the eternally dim rainforest floor. Whitney and her colleagues describe the blue leaves today in the journal Nature Plants.. ...
Recent work using sensitive techniques to measure leaf shape has suggested that directionalized asymmetry along the left and right side of the leaf may be more prevalent than once believed. Although superficially bilaterally symmetric, elliptical Fourier descriptor (EFD) analysis in Arabidopsis thaliana, in addition to simple measurements in the shifts between leaflet placement along the left and right sides of Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) leaves, reveals that plants in these species produce leaves biased to be left- or right-handed [5]. The asymmetry of leaves is dependent on the handedness of the plant from which they originate. Handedness in plants arises when the phyllotaxy (the angular arrangement of initiated leaves and other lateral organs on a plant) is spiral (i.e. the angle between initiating leaves is approximately the golden angle, approximately 137.5°). In reference to a bottom-up view of leaf initiation events, the spiral can form in two directions, either clockwise (C) or ...
Variation in morphological traits in evolution can be achieved by different routes, which include, but are not limited to, changes in a transcription factors expression pattern, biochemical properties (DNA binding properties or the ability to interact with other protein partners), and/or array of targets, either by recruitment of new targets, or loss of old targets. Currently, there is some debate surrounding the relative significance of cis-regulatory mutations versus mutations in coding regions of genes to drive morphological evolution (Hoekstra and Coyne, 2007; Wray, 2007). The data presented here hint that both mechanisms likely have been employed in the evolution of the KNOX1 and FLO/LFY pathways governing compound leaf development in the legumes.. We compared KNOX1 downregulation at the leaf initiation site in both early-diverging and more recently diverged clades in the Fabaceae and found that in all cases, including members of the IRLC, KNOX1 proteins are downregulated at P0. This ...
There are several species of bacteria that attack houseplants. Some of these bacterial infections become systemic throughout the plant while others will remain as localized lesions. Bacterial disease symptoms range from black to brown, often watery leaf spots or lesions to total collapse of the tissue. Collapsed tissues usually are soft and mushy with a rotten smell to them. Leaf symptoms will often be observed between the veins and may be contained between leaf veins and appear angular or V-shaped. Some plants will characteristically develop lesions along the leaf margins where the bacteria enter through hydathodes (small openings along the leaf margins). Often these infections will cause leaf drop. Other symptoms may include yellow margins around leaf lesions, small blister like spots that run together, or spots where the center falls out. ...
Maize leaves skip neighbor plants by orientating their growth away from low R/FR signals. Under low R to FR ratios, eudicots tend to place their leaves in a more erect position in a movement articulated at the base of the petioles (Satter and Whetherell, 1968), and forage grasses place the entire shoot in a more erect position (Casal et al., 1990). We did not observe obvious changes in the angle of maize leaves on a vertical plane in response to R/FR signals simulating neighbor plants. In contrast, maize leaves showed a distinctive displacement of the lamina on the horizontal plane.. The shade avoidance syndrome (Smith, 2000) involves a series of changes in plant architecture in response to the low R to FR ratio of vegetation canopies, which improve the exposure of the foliage to photosynthetic light. Phytochrome-mediated changes include enhanced axis growth, reduced branching, organ reorientation, and accelerated flowering. The relative importance of these responses depends on the species. In ...
Yellowing leaves can indicate natural leaf drop (if it is just affected the oldest leaves), water stress, or disease such as black spot. Black spot is caused by Diplocarpon rosae, a fungus that overwinters on old diseased leaves and infected canes. Leaves are most susceptible while expanding. After fungal spores land on leaves, it takes at least 9 hours of leaf wetness for the spore to infect. Fungal fruiting bodies form in 11-30 days. A new crop of spores is produced and spreads to healthy portions of the plant by splashing rain or irrigation water. Spores do not survive in soil but do survive on all infected plant debris. The natural genetic variability of the fungus means roses found resistant in one location may be susceptible in another location due to the presence of different fungal strains. Also, resistant roses may become susceptible after a few years due to changes in the local fungal population. The symptoms of black spot begin with circular black spots, frequently with fringed ...
For a typical leaf, we use that of the umbrella tree, which is commonly sold as a foliage plant throughout North America and Europe. It is actually a tree native to tropical rainforests of northern Australia; it is a good example because we can examine it at any time of the year.. The structure of the umbrella tree leaf is typical of leaves in general (Above left photo). It has an outer layer, the epidermis, which produces a waxy waterproof coating. The epidermis of the undersurface produces guard cells, which swell and shrink to close and open the pores (stomata) which control the loss of water vapor (transpiration) and the entry of carbon dioxide. The internal tissues consist of the mesophyll, the photosynthetic cells of the leaf. These are typically the long columnar cells nearer the surface (palisade parenchyma) and the looser irregular cells beneath (the spongy mesophyll parenchyma). These cells are loaded with chloroplasts in the cytoplasm. Each of these cells has a large vacuole, bound by ...
Vegetation plays a key role in the environmental cycling and fate of many organic chemicals. A compounds location on or within leaves will affect its persistence and significance; retention in surface compartments (i.e., the epicuticular wax and cuticle) renders the compound more susceptible to photodegradation and volatilization, while penetration into the epidermal cell walls or cytoplasm will enhance susceptibility to metabolism. Here, for the first time, methodologies which combine plant and PAH autofluorescence with two-photon excitation microscopy (TPEM) are used to visualize and quantify compound photodegradation on and within living plant leaves. Anthracene, fluoranthene, and phenanthrene were introduced to living leaves of Zea mays and monitored in real time, in control treatments, and when subject to UV-A radiation. Compound photodegradation was observed directly; different degradation rates occurred for different compounds (anthracene , fluoranthene , phenanthrene) and in different ...
phdthesis{3005523, abstract = {In contrast to humans and animals, the body plan of a plant is not completely defined within the embryonic stages. Organ formation continues throughout plant development and this iterative and modular process is continuously controlled by environmental cues such as light, gravity, temperature, humidity and chemicals. In most plant species, the above-ground plant body is dominated by leaves, the organs specialized in photosynthesis. This process converts carbon dioxide into organic components utilizing energy from sunlight; making leaves the energy production site and the growth engine of plants. In addition, in many cases the majority of a plant{\textquoteright}s biomass consists of leaves, also making them important organs for the production of food, feed and bio-energy.

We show that two Arabidopsis thaliana genes for histone deacetylases (HDACs), HDT1/HD2A and HDT2/HD2B, are required to establish leaf polarity in the presence of mutant ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2 (AS2) or AS1. Treatment of as1 or as2 plants with inhibitors of HDACs resulted in abaxialized filamentous leaves and aberrant distribution of microRNA165 and/or microRNA166 (miR165/166) in leaves. Knockdown mutations of these two HDACs by RNA interference resulted in phenotypes like those observed in the as2 background. Nuclear localization of overproduced AS2 resulted in decreased levels of mature miR165/166 in leaves. This abnormality was abolished by HDAC inhibitors, suggesting that HDACs are required for AS2 action. A loss-of-function mutation in HASTY, encoding a positive regulator of miRNA levels, and a gain-of-function mutation in PHABULOSA, encoding a determinant of adaxialization, suppressed the generation of abaxialized filamentous leaves by inhibition of HDACs in the as1 or as2 background. AS2 and ...
Leaf-tying caterpillars act as ecosystem engineers by building shelters between overlapping leaves, which are inhabited by other arthropods. Leaf-tiers have been observed to leave their ties and create new shelters (and thus additional microhabitats), but the ecological factors affecting shelter fidelity are poorly known. For this study, we explored the effects of resource limitation and occupant density on shelter fidelity and assessed the consequences of shelter abandonment. We first quantified the area of leaf material required for a caterpillar to fully develop for two of the most common leaf-tiers that feed on white oak, Quercus alba. On average, Psilocorsis spp. caterpillars consumed 21.65 ± 0.67 cm2 leaf material to complete development. We also measured the area of natural leaf ties found in a Maryland forest, to determine the distribution of resources available to caterpillars in situ. Of 158 natural leaf ties examined, 47% were too small to sustain an average Psilocorsis spp. caterpillar for
The first inclination may be to think that the plant isnt getting enough water. This may be the issue 50% of the time. However, there are many funguses that cause plant leaves to dry up and crumble. Fungus is typically indicative of too much water, so in this case, the plant is getting water, but a fungus is on the leaves causing stress and the leaves are drying up. Insects can also be a cause of this ...
Usefulness of a screen for Arabidopsis mutants with abnormal leaves: Mutations in genes that control leaf development might have phenotypic effects that vary from lethality to the absence of visible alterations. The lethal alleles would include the most hypomorphic and null mutations, affecting genes with housekeeping functions or those required for initiating the leaf, an essential organ for the plant, or those with products shared by other developmental pathways, such as embryogenesis. A second class would be represented by mutations in genes of redundant functions, which would not cause phenotypes distinguishable from the wild type. After considering these two extreme cases, it is reasonable to assume that mutations in the genes involved in the control of leaf ontogeny might determine viable phenotypes, characterized by alterations in leaf shape or size. Such mutants might express morphological abnormalities in the leaves alone or in other parts of the plant, too, depending on whether or not ...
Tomato leaves undergo extended morphogenesis, resulting in elaborate and variable leaf forms (Burko and Ori, 2013). Among tomato leaf phenotypes, the clau mutant is extreme in its leaf elaboration, exemplifying the potential of further extending the tomato leaf morphogenetic window and its possible results. Overexpressing CLAU curbs leaf morphogenesis, demonstrating that CLAU regulates the length of the leaf morphogenetic window.. How does CLAU regulate morphogenetic competence in the leaf? We recently reported that CLAU is involved in delimiting the expression of GOB, a central regulator of leaf morphogenesis (Bar et al., 2015; Ben-Gera et al., 2012; Berger et al., 2009; Brand et al., 2007; Busch et al., 2011; Rossmann et al., 2015). Here, GOB is shown to be downregulated by CLAU overexpression. In addition, clau has abnormally high expression of the KNOXI gene LeT6/Tkn2, which plays important role in promoting leaf morphogenesis (Avivi et al., 2000; Jasinski et al., 2007). Here, we show that a ...

Leaves have a central role in plant energy capture and carbon conversion and therefore must continuously adapt their development to prevailing environmental conditions. To reveal the dynamic systems behaviour of leaf development, we profiled Arabidopsis leaf number six in depth at four different growth stages, at both the end-of-day and end-of-night, in plants growing in two controlled experimental conditions: short-day conditions with optimal soil water content and constant reduced soil water conditions. We found that the lower soil water potential led to reduced, but prolonged, growth and an adaptation at the molecular level without a drought stress response. Clustering of the protein and transcript data using a decision tree revealed different patterns in abundance changes across the growth stages and between end-of-day and end-of-night that are linked to specific biological functions. Correlations between protein and transcript levels depend on the time-of-day and also on protein ...

Under future climates, leaf temperature (T-l) will be higher and more variable. This will affect plant carbon (C) balance because photosynthesis and respiration both respond to short-term (subdaily) fluctuations in T-l and acclimate in the longer term (days to months). This study asks the question: To what extent can the potential and speed of photosynthetic acclimation buffer leaf C gain from rising and increasing variable T-l? We quantified how increases in the mean and variability of growth temperature affect leaf performance (mean net CO2 assimilation rates, A(net); its variability; and time under near-optimal photosynthetic conditions), as mediated by thermal acclimation. To this aim, the probability distribution of A(net) was obtained by combining a probabilistic description of short- and long-term changes in T-l with data on A(net) responses to these changes, encompassing 75 genera and 111 species, including both C3 and C4 species. Our results show that (a) expected increases in T-l ...
Veins (sometimes referred to as nerves) constitute one of the more visible leaf traits or characteristics. The veins in a leaf represent the vascular structure of the organ, extending into the leaf via the petiole and provide transportation of water and nutrients between leaf and stem, and play a crucial role in the maintenance of leaf water status and photosynthetic capacity.They also play a role in the mechanical support of the leaf.[19][20] Within the lamina of the leaf, while some vascular plants possess only a single vein, in most this vasculature generally divides (ramifies) according to a variety of patterns (venation) and form cylindrical bundles, usually lying in the median plane of the mesophyll, between the two layers of epidermis.[21] This pattern is often specific to taxa, and of which angiosperms possess two main types, parallel and reticulate (net like). In general, parallel venation is typical of monocots, while reticulate is more typical of eudicots and magnoliids ("dicots"), ...

Author SummaryLeaf venation patterns of most angiosperm plants are hierarchical structures that develop during leaf growth. A remarkable characteristic of these structures is the abundance of closed loops: the venation array divides the leaf surface into disconnected polygonal sectors. The initial vein generations are repetitive within the same species, while high-order vein generations are much more diverse but still show preserved statistical properties. The accepted view of vein formation is the auxin canalization hypothesis: a high flow of the hormone auxin triggers cell differentiation to form veins. Although the role of auxin in vein formation is well established, some issues are difficult to explain within this model, in particular, the abundance of loops of high-order veins. In this work, we explore the previously proposed idea that elastic stresses may play an important role in the development of venation patterns. This appealing hypothesis naturally explains the existence of hierarchical

Many disease-producing bacteria restricted to plant leaves can be controlled; however, prevention should be the aim. Provide plants with light conditions that are optimum for their growth. Sun-loving plants should get full sun, and all others should be placed near an east window or given supplemental lighting. Avoid placing plants where there are conditions of high humidity, crowding, or poor air circulation. Do not mist plants and avoid wetting the foliage when watering, as bacteria need water to multiply and spread to healthy leaves. Water plants according to recommendations, being careful not to overwater them. Proper watering, repotting every 6 months to 1 year in fresh sterile soil, fertilizing every 8-12 weeks during the spring and summer, and controlling insect infestations will keep plants growing in healthy condition and lessen the likelihood of infestation by bacteria or other disease organisms. Should a plant become infected by bacteria, the following suggestions may help to halt the ...

Yellow leaves can be caused by many things including lack of nitrogen, insufficient light, water-logged soil (plant roots need oxygen to thrive), dry soil, or iron deficiency. If the older bottom leaves are yellow, but new growth is green, its usually a lack of nitrogen. If new leaves are yellow, with green veins, its usually a lack of iron. (Lack of nitrogen is a more common problem than lack of iron.) Soil should be kept moderately moist (but not wet). Finally, a cold snap can injure the leaves; they will wilt suddenly and then drop off the plant ...
Leaf dark respiration (Rdark) is an important yet poorly quantified component of the global carbon cycle. Given this, we analyzed a new global database of Rdark and associated leaf traits.. -Data for 899 species were compiled from 100 sites (from the Arctic to the tropics). Several woody and nonwoody plant functional types (PFTs) were represented. Mixed-effects models were used to disentangle sources of variation in Rdark.. -Area-based Rdark at the prevailing average daily growth temperature (T) of each site increased only twofold from the Arctic to the tropics, despite a 20°C increase in growing T (8-28°C). By contrast, Rdark at a standard T (25°C, Rdark25) was threefold higher in the Arctic than in the tropics, and twofold higher at arid than at mesic sites. Species and PFTs at cold sites exhibited higher Rdark25 at a given photosynthetic capacity (Vcmax25) or leaf nitrogen concentration ([N]) than species at warmer sites. Rdark25 values at any given Vcmax25 or [N] were higher in herbs than ...

This was the first time SANS was used to look at whole leaves and the technique proved to be very suitable. SANS has the advantage to look at the structure and properties of leaves without damaging them. The technique provided unique information on the structure of the thylakoid membrane system in rather quick experiments that lasted less than a minute. Such short experiments can open the way to dynamic studies. Results showed that when submitted to environmental changes such as different illumination, the organisation of thylakoid membranes changed significantly in the whole leaves. ...

Figure 1. This figure is a cross-section of a leaf and shows the main components of the leaf structure. The palisade layer is composed of palisade cells which are part of the mesophyll tissue found in leaves. The mesophyll of leaves is comprised of the palisade and spongy cell layers. This image has been taken from:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Leaf_Tissue_Structure.svg.. The equation for photosynthesis is as follows: 6CO2 + 12H2O + light energy -----, C6H12O6 + 6O2 Variables:. CO2 = carbon dioxide. H20 = water. C6H12O6 = glucose. O2 = oxygen. Photosynthesis requires a few major photosynthetic compounds in order to produce glucose. As already mentioned, chlorophyll, a green pigment, is required to absorb energy from the sun. Chlorophyll contains a porphyrin ring structure with a magnesium ion at its center. Furthermore, an enzyme called Rubisco is essential to this process. Rubisco is required for carbon fixation during the Calvin cycle, creating a 6-carbon compound which gets broken down ...
Leaves vary from planar sheets and needle-like structures, to elaborate cup-shaped traps. Here we show that in the carnivorous plant Utricularia gibba, the upper leaf (adaxial) domain is restricted to a small region of the primordium which gives rise to the traps inner layer. This restriction is necessary for trap formation, as ectopic adaxial activity at early stages gives radialized leaves and no traps. We present a model that accounts for the formation of both planar and non-planar leaves through adaxial-abaxial domains of gene activity establishing a polarity field that orients growth. In combination with an orthogonal proximodistal polarity field, this system can generate diverse leaf forms, and can account for the multiple evolutionary origins of cup-shaped leaves through simple shifts in gene expression. ...
Expression of selected genes in relation to phosphate (Pi) starvation and sugar sensing was studied in leaves of Arabidopsis. Excised leaf segments with different P status were supplied with combinations of Pi and sugars. Sugar-inducible genes, encoding β-amylase (β-AMY) and chalcone synthase (CHS), were also induced by P deficiency, and were more strongly regulated by sugars when leaf segments originated from P-starved plants. Furthermore, transcript levels of the P-starvation-inducible genes ACP5 (encoding an acid phosphatase), RNS1 (encoding a ribonuclease), and IPS1 (unknown function) increased in response to exogenously applied sugars. Supply of Pi to the leaf segments reversed both P-starvation-induced and sugar-induced gene expression. These interactions reveal a close relationship between P and sugar sensing. To differentiate between hexokinase-dependent and hexokinase-independent sugar sensing the effect of the glucose analogue 2-deoxyglucose and gene expression in the hexokinase-1 ...
Fungal diseases of the leaf may occur as soon as the first leaves unfold in early spring and continue until dormancy in the late fall. On highly susceptible varieties, these diseases can cause significant economic damage. The primary damage from leaf diseases is a loss of vigor through reduced leaf area. If outbreaks of these leaf diseases become significant, the plants will become weakened resulting in increased susceptibility to root diseases and winter injury.
From an equilibrium perspective, it seems that red oak leaves are built with respect to hydraulic function like the proverbial "One Hoss Shay": mesophyll turgor loss, petiole cavitation, and terminal vein collapse all accelerate rapidly after water potentials decline below −2 MPa. If one then takes the further reasonable step of assuming that building a more robust leaf (more cavitation-resistant xylem, stiffer-walled terminal tracheids, and mesophyll that can maintain turgor to more negative water potentials) involves nontrivial costs, it may be regarded as evolutionarily efficient that the failure modes of these diverse tissues all occur at similar levels of stress: none is overbuilt relative to the other. Yet, in the life of the plant, such negative equilibrium potentials might only be obtained when stomata are shut and the soil dry (i.e. drought conditions), conditions that, in vivo, are likely to lead to leaf senescence.. From the nonequilibrium perspective of a transpiring leaf, our ...

Improvements in carbon assimilation and water-use performance lead to boosts in optimum leaf region index at raised carbon dioxide focus ([CO2]); nevertheless, the molecular motorists for this enhance are unknown. development in dicots, tests must take into account the spatial and diel variants in development (Trainotti et al., 2004; Matsubara et al., 2005).

A field experiment to compare the performance of amaranth at six intra-row plant spacings was conducted during summer of 1990. The genotype, RRC 241 was planted on a Dothan sandy loam soil (fine loamy, siliceous, thermic, Plinthic Paleudult) in 5 m long and 90 cm wide rows at six plant spacing of 4, 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40 cm in completely randomized blocks with three replications. Weeding was done mechanically and plots were irrigated as needed. The crop was harvested 40 days after planting. Data on plant height, branch number, and leaf number were obtained from five random plants from each plot. Plants were then separated into stem, petiole, and leaf parts. Plant component fresh weight was recorded and leaf area of two plants/plot was measured. Holes were made by a cork borer in the leaf blades of two random plants and 50 leaf discs were collected. The cumulative leaf area of the discs were measured and the leaf discs were dried to a constant weight at 70°C to calculate the specific leaf weight ...
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a diverse group of small, cationic peptides that can inhibit the growth of a broad range of microbes. They can be found in plants as well as in animals and have been shown to play an important role in defense and innate immunity [1,2]. The stable ectopic expression of AMPs in plants allows for the use of plants as biofactories or in the protection of crops against a wide range of pathogens [3,4]. A universal method that could verify in planta AMP stability and accumulation would allow for the rapid screening of different candidates to find novel AMPs for plant protection.. One of the first animal-peptides heterologously expressed in plants was cecropin B, a small AMP from the giant silk moth Hyalophora cecropia. Attempts to detect the peptide in transgenic tobacco and potato plants failed, indicating in planta instability [5,6]. Cecropin B has been shown to be extremely susceptible to endogenous plant peptidases and even modified versions of the peptide had ...
Abstract. Modeling vegetation photosynthesis is essential for understanding carbon exchanges between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. The radiative transfer process within plant canopies is one of the key drivers that regulate canopy photosynthesis. Most vegetation cover consists of discrete plant crowns, of which the physical observation departs from the underlying assumption of a homogenous and uniform medium in classic radiative transfer theory. Here we advance the Geometric Optical Radiative Transfer (GORT) model to simulate photosynthesis activities for discontinuous plant canopies. We separate radiation absorption into two components that are absorbed by sunlit and shaded leaves, and derive analytical solutions by integrating over the canopy layer. To model leaf-level and canopy-level photosynthesis, leaf light absorption is then linked to the biochemical process of gas diffusion through leaf stomata. The canopy gap probability derived from GORT differs from classic radiative ...

glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene also were grown. At approximately 2 1/2 weeks postemergence, half of the plants were treated with 150 ppb O3 for 6 hours per day for 8 or 14 days. Leaf tissue was harvested immediately after completion of the O3 treatment. RNA was extracted from leaves seven and eight (numbered by order of emergence from the meristem) pooled from six plants. Transcript levels of several SAGs and photosynthesis-associated genes (PAGs) were measured by northern analysis. GUS activity was measured in pooled rosette leaves seven and eight from transgenic plants. Leaves seven and eight from transgenic plants also were stained to visualize GUS activity.. The results of this research project will allow for more accurate predictions of the extent of damage caused by O3 stress. It may reveal that O3-induced senescence is a nuclear-controlled event. This information may be useful in reducing plant susceptibility to O3. ...

Light impinging on plants arrives as discrete particles we term photons, so that a flux of photosynthetically active photons can be referred to as photon irradiance.
I know the seeds are mildly poisonous, but what about the leaves? What about the leaves of other trees like, orange trees, plum trees, maple trees, ground banana tree leaves, etc? If the bark of a tree is edible, does that imply that its leaves, seeds, and sap are edible as well? Vice versa? There are also some foods that are somewhat toxic, such as acorns, but they are better when prepared a certain way. Certainly there are many perfectly edible plant parts, such as kiwi skins, that are ordinarily disposed of. Can anyone comment on this topic ...

Leaf spots caused by Bacterial blight appear as small brown to black spots on the leaves. The pathogen can be soil or seed borne and develops during cool, moist weather. The disease spreads during cool, rainy weather or with ...
6f , Leaf-miner: The mine begins as a long, quite narrow corridor, usually not far from the tip of a leaf segment. Usually this corridor follows the leaf margin for some distance, but it may also run freely through the blade and may then be stongly contorted. In the end the corridor is directed towards the midrib, where an elongated blotch is formed, overlying the midrib and some of the larger lateral veins. Frass in a nearly continuous line in the initial corridor, in scattered lumps in the later part of the mine. Primary and secondary feeding lines very conspicuous when seen in transparancy. Pupation outside the mine (Bladmineerders van Europa).. The mine starts as a very narrow corridor, usually close to the tip of a leaf segment and following the leaf margin.

Measurement or estimation of leaf area is essential for understanding crop responses to experimental treatments. The objective of this study was to develop regression models for estimating leaf area of field-grown cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) from measurements of leaf dry weight (LDW), vegetative components (stems and leaves) dry weight (VDW) and plant height (PH). Three cotton cultivars (Deltapine 25, Sahel and Siokra 324) with different leaf morphologies were grown under varying growth conditions created by four different planting dates in a temperate sub-humid environment (Gorgan, Iran). Leaf area, LDW, VDW and PH were measured at one month after emergence, squaring, flowering, bolling, boll opening and second harvest. Data set for validation was collected during growing season of 2003 in different experiments. Measured leaf area ranged from 170 to 8167 cm2 plant -1. Different regression models were examined for describing leaf area relationships to LDW, VDW and PH. It was found that the power

Leaf rust resistance gene Lr21 is present in hard red spring wheat (Triticum aestivum) cultivars grown in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Isolates of Puccinia triticina, the causal organism of wheat leaf rust, with virulence to this gene have not been previously detected in annual virulence surveys in the United States. (2). In 2010, hard red spring wheat cvs. Faller, RB07 (1), and Glenn, all with Lr21, had 0 to 5% levels of leaf rust severity, which was higher than in previous years in research plots in North Dakota and Minnesota. Leaf rust collections from wheat cultivars and germplasm lines with Lr21 at three locations in Minnesota and North Dakota were increased on plants of the leaf rust susceptible wheat Thatcher and the Thatcher line with Lr21. Single uredinia from the collections were isolated and increased on seedlings of Thatcher. The single uredinial isolates were inoculated to 7- to 8-day-old seedling plants of the set of 19 differential lines that ...
Plant receptor-like kinases (RLKs) exert an essential function in the transduction of signals from the cell exterior to the cell interior, acting as important regulators of plant development and responses to environmental conditions. A growing body of evidence suggests that RLKs may play relevant roles in plant-virus interactions, although the details and diversity of effects and underlying mechanisms remain elusive. The C4 protein from different geminiviruses has been found to interact with RLKs in the CLAVATA 1 (CLV1) clade. However, whether C4 can interact with RLKs in other subfamilies and, if so, what the biological impact of such interactions might be, is currently unknown. In this work, we explore the interaction landscape of C4 from the geminivirus Tomato yellow leaf curl virus within the Arabidopsis RLK family. Our results show that C4 can interact with RLKs from different subfamilies including, but not restricted to, members of the CLV1 clade. Functional analyses of the interaction of C4 with

Whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses (begomoviruses) are a major limiting factor for the production of numerous dicotyledonous crops throughout the world. Begomoviruses differ in the number of components that make up their genomes and association with satellites, and yet they cause strikingly similar phenotypes, such as leaf curling, chlorosis and stunted plant growth. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small endogenous RNAs that regulate plant growth and development. The study described here was aimed at investigating the effects of each virus encoded gene on the levels of developmental miRNAs to identify common trends between distinct begomoviruses. All genes encoded by four distinct begomoviruses (African cassava mosaic virus [ACMV], Cabbage leaf curl virus [CbLCuV], Tomato yellow leaf curl virus [TYLCV] and Cotton leaf curl virus/Cotton leaf curl betasatellite [CLCuV/CLCuMB]) were expressed from a Potato virus X (PVX) vector in Nicotiana benthamiana. Changes in the levels of ten miRNAs in response to the virus
HERBS -- Therapeutic use. Abstract:This study aims to present the in vitro inhibitory effect of Psidium guajava and Juglans regia leaf extracts on the main developer of acne lesions, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), and other organisms that are isolated from acne lesions. Thirty-eight subjects (males and females) who had various types of acne were enrolled in the study. The contents of the acne lesions were cultured and the frequency of P. acnes (alone and with Staphylococci spp.) was 47%, whereas the frequencies for Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis were 13% and 24%, respectively. The antimicrobial activities of Psidium guajava and Juglans regia leaf extracts, determined by disk diffusion method (zone of inhibition), were compared to tea tree oil (TTO), doxycycline and clindamycin antibiotics. The zones of inhibition due to the Psidium guajava and Juglans regia leaf extracts ranged from 15.8-17.6 mm against P. acnes, 11.3-15.7 mm against S. aureus and 12.9-15.5 mm against ...

  • As a result, pasture growth immediately after grazing is slow, and between grazing and the one-leaf stage (second leaf emergence), only accumulates approximately 15pc of total pasture yield. (independent.ie)
  • Growth of the second leaf to the two-leaf stage (third leaf emergence), allows new tillers to grow and growth accumulates more rapidly to 35-40pc of total pasture yield. (independent.ie)
  • From the two-leaf stage to the three-leaf stage WSC reserves are replenished to pre-grazing levels, and growth will account for 45-50pc of total pasture yield. (independent.ie)
  • As the fourth leaf grows, sensence (death) will start to equate to growth, and tillering will reduce with an increase in stem formation as tillers receive reduced light penetration to the base of the plant. (independent.ie)
  • So, in order to optimise pasture growth and quality, the aim is to graze a sward between the two and three-leaf stage, which has implications on the appropriate rotation length. (independent.ie)
  • On the other hand, if you have built up substantial pasture cover relative to pasture demand or have heavy ground, grazing at the two-leaf stage (eg, 30-35 days) may be more appropriate to encourage grass growth and tillering. (independent.ie)
  • It's important that the rotation length increases during the autumn as grazing pastures before the two-leaf stage (eg, 20-25 days) will reduce the phase of rapid growth, and reduce total pasture accumulation (increase the feed deficit), and will inhibit the tillers' ability to replenish WSC and will reduce the ability of plants to tiller and survive. (independent.ie)
