Use of confocal laser as light source reveals stomata-autonomous function. (1/441)

In most terrestrial plants, stomata open during the day to maximize the update of CO(2) for photosynthesis, but they close at night to minimize water loss. Blue light, among several environmental factors, controls this process. Stomata response to diverse stimuli seems to be dictated by the behaviour of neighbour stomata creating leaf areas of coordinated response. Here individual stomata of Arabidopsis leaves were illuminated with a short blue-light pulse by focusing a confocal argon laser. Beautifully, the illuminated stomata open their pores, whereas their dark-adapted neighbours unexpectedly experience no change. This induction of individual stomata opening by low fluence rates of blue light was disrupted in the phototropin1 phototropin2 (phot1 phot2) double mutant, which exhibits insensitivity of stomatal movements in blue-illuminated epidermal strips. The irradiation of all epidermal cells making direct contact with a given stoma in both wild type and phot1 phot2 plants does not trigger its movement. These results unravel the stoma autonomous function in the blue light response and illuminate the implication of PHOT1 and/or PHOT2 in such response. The micro spatial heterogeneity that solar blue light suffers in partially shaded leaves under natural conditions highlights the physiological significance of the autonomous stomatal behaviour.  (+info)

The role of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase during C4 photosynthetic isotope exchange and stomatal conductance. (2/441)

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC; EC 4.1.1.31) plays a key role during C(4) photosynthesis and is involved in anaplerotic metabolism, pH regulation, and stomatal opening. Heterozygous (Pp) and homozygous (pp) forms of a PEPC-deficient mutant of the C(4) dicot Amaranthus edulis were used to study the effect of reduced PEPC activity on CO(2) assimilation rates, stomatal conductance, and (13)CO(2) (Delta(13)C) and C(18)OO (Delta(18)O) isotope discrimination during leaf gas exchange. PEPC activity was reduced to 42% and 3% and the rates of CO(2) assimilation in air dropped to 78% and 10% of the wild-type values in the Pp and pp mutants, respectively. Stomatal conductance in air (531 mubar CO(2)) was similar in the wild-type and Pp mutant but the pp mutant had only 41% of the wild-type steady-state conductance under white light and the stomata opened more slowly in response to increased light or reduced CO(2) partial pressure, suggesting that the C(4) PEPC isoform plays an essential role in stomatal opening. There was little difference in Delta(13)C between the Pp mutant (3.0 per thousand +/- 0.4 per thousand) and wild type (3.3 per thousand +/- 0.4 per thousand), indicating that leakiness (), the ratio of CO(2) leak rate out of the bundle sheath to the rate of CO(2) supply by the C(4) cycle, a measure of the coordination of C(4) photosynthesis, was not affected by a 60% reduction in PEPC activity. In the pp mutant Delta(13)C was 16 per thousand +/- 3.2 per thousand, indicative of direct CO(2) fixation by Rubisco in the bundle sheath at ambient CO(2) partial pressure. Delta(18)O measurements indicated that the extent of isotopic equilibrium between leaf water and the CO(2) at the site of oxygen exchange () was low (0.6) in the wild-type and Pp mutant but increased to 0.9 in the pp mutant. We conclude that in vitro carbonic anhydrase activity overestimated as compared to values determined from Delta(18)O in wild-type plants.  (+info)

Stand aside stomata, another actor deserves centre stage: the forgotten role of the internal conductance to CO2 transfer. (3/441)

Internal conductance describes the movement of CO(2) from substomatal cavities to sites of carboxylation. Internal conductance has now been measured in approximately 50 species, and in all of these species it is a large limitation of photosynthesis. It accounts for somewhat less than half of the decrease in CO(2) concentrations from the atmosphere to sites of carboxylation. There have been two major findings in the past decade. First, the limitation due to internal conductance (i.e. C(i)-C(c)) is not fixed but varies among species and functional groups. Second, internal conductance is affected by some environmental variables and can change rapidly, for example, in response to leaf temperature, drought stress or CO(2) concentration. Biochemical factors such as carbonic anhydrase or aquaporins are probably responsible for these rapid changes. The determinants of internal conductance remain elusive, but are probably a combination of leaf anatomy, morphology, and biochemical factors. In most plants, the gas phase component of internal conductance is negligible with the majority of resistance resting in the liquid phase from cell walls to sites of carboxylation. The internal conductance story is far from complete and many exciting challenges remain. Internal conductance ought to be included in models of canopy photosynthesis, but before this is feasible additional data on the variation in internal conductance among and within species are urgently required. Future research should also focus on teasing apart the different steps in the diffusion pathway (intercellular spaces, cell wall, plasmalemma, cytosol, and chloroplast envelope) since it is likely that this will provide clues as to what determines internal conductance.  (+info)

Comparison of several models for calculating ozone stomatal fluxes on a Mediterranean wheat cultivar (Triticum durum Desf. cv. Camacho). (4/441)

Ozone stomatal fluxes were modeled for a 3-year period following different approaches for a commercial variety of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf. cv. Camacho) at the phenological stage of anthesis. All models performed in the same range, although not all of them afforded equally significant results. Nevertheless, all of them suggest that stomatal conductance would account for the main percentage of ozone deposition fluxes. A new modeling approach was tested, based on a 3-D architectural model of the wheat canopy, and fairly accurate results were obtained. Plant species-specific measurements, as well as measurements of stomatal conductance and environmental parameters, were required. The method proposed for calculating ozone stomatal fluxes (FO(3_3-D)) from experimental gs data and modeling them as a function of certain environmental parameters in conjunction with the use of the YPLANT model seems to be adequate, providing realistic estimates of the canopy FO(3_3-D), integrating and not neglecting the contribution of the lower leaves with respect to the flag leaf, although a further development of this model is needed.  (+info)

The role of stomatal acclimation in modelling tree adaptation to high CO2. (5/441)

Carbon dioxide enrichment changes the balance of photosynthetic limitations due to water, nitrogen, and light. This paper examines the role of stomata in these changes by comparing enrichment responses predicted by an optimality-based tree growth model, DESPOT, using three alternative 'setpoints' for stomatal acclimation: leaf water potential (psi(l)-setpoint), the ratio of intercellular to ambient CO(2) mole fraction (c(i)/c(a)-setpoint), and the parameters in a simple model in which stomata are controlled by H(2)O and CO(2) supply and demand (linked feedback). In each scenario, stomatal conductance (g(s)) and photosynthetic capacity (V(m)) declined, productivity and leaf area index (LAI) increased, and c(i)/c(a) remained within 5% of its pre-enrichment value. Height growth preceded the LAI response in the psi(l)-setpoint and linked feedback scenarios, but not in the c(i)/c(a)-setpoint scenario. These trends were explained in terms of photosynthetic resource substitution using the equimarginal principle of production theory, which controls carbon allocation in DESPOT: enrichment initially increased the marginal product for light, driving substitution towards light; height growth also drove substitution towards N in the psi(l) and feedback scenarios, but the inflexibility of c(i)/c(a) prevented that substitution in the c(i)/c(a) scenario, explaining the lack of height response. Each scenario, however, predicted similar behaviour for c(i)/c(a) and carbon and water flux. These results suggest that 'setpoints' may be robust tools for linking and constraining carbon and water fluxes, but that they should be used more cautiously in predicting or interpreting how those fluxes arise from changes in tree structure and physiology.  (+info)

Lysigenous aerenchyma formation in Arabidopsis is controlled by LESION SIMULATING DISEASE1. (6/441)

Aerenchyma tissues form gas-conducting tubes that provide roots with oxygen under hypoxic conditions. Although aerenchyma have received considerable attention in Zea mays, the signaling events and genes controlling aerenchyma induction remain elusive. Here, we show that Arabidopsis thaliana hypocotyls form lysigenous aerenchyma in response to hypoxia and that this process involves H(2)O(2) and ethylene signaling. By studying Arabidopsis mutants that are deregulated for excess light acclimation, cell death, and defense responses, we find that the formation of lysigenous aerenchyma depends on the plant defense regulators LESION SIMULATING DISEASE1 (LSD1), ENHANCED DISEASE SUSCEPIBILITY1 (EDS1), and PHYTOALEXIN DEFICIENT4 (PAD4) that operate upstream of ethylene and reactive oxygen species production. The obtained results indicate that programmed cell death of lysigenous aerenchyma in hypocotyls occurs in a similar but independent manner from the foliar programmed cell death. Thus, the induction of aerenchyma is subject to a genetic and tissue-specific program. The data lead us to conclude that the balanced activities of LSD1, EDS1, and PAD4 regulate lysigenous aerenchyma formation in response to hypoxia.  (+info)

The contribution of photosynthesis to the red light response of stomatal conductance. (7/441)

To determine the contribution of photosynthesis on stomatal conductance, we contrasted the stomatal red light response of wild-type tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum 'W38') with that of plants impaired in photosynthesis by antisense reductions in the content of either cytochrome b(6)f complex (anti-b/f plants) or Rubisco (anti-SSU plants). Both transgenic genotypes showed a lowered content of the antisense target proteins in guard cells as well as in the mesophyll. In the anti-b/f plants, CO(2) assimilation rates were proportional to leaf cytochrome b(6)f content, but there was little effect on stomatal conductance and the rate of stomatal opening. To compare the relationship between photosynthesis and stomatal conductance, wild-type plants and anti-SSU plants were grown at 30 and 300 micromol photon m(-2) s(-1) irradiance (low light and medium light [ML], respectively). Growth in ML increased CO(2) assimilation rates and stomatal conductance in both genotypes. Despite the significantly lower CO(2) assimilation rate in the anti-SSU plants, the differences in stomatal conductance between the genotypes were nonsignificant at either growth irradiance. Irrespective of plant genotype, stomatal density in the two leaf surfaces was 2-fold higher in ML-grown plants than in low-light-grown plants and conductance normalized to stomatal density was unaffected by growth irradiance. We conclude that the red light response of stomatal conductance is independent of the concurrent photosynthetic rate of the guard cells or of that of the underlying mesophyll. Furthermore, we suggest that the correlation of photosynthetic capacity and stomatal conductance observed under different light environments is caused by signals largely independent of photosynthesis.  (+info)

Overexpression of AtMYB44 enhances stomatal closure to confer abiotic stress tolerance in transgenic Arabidopsis. (8/441)

AtMYB44 belongs to the R2R3 MYB subgroup 22 transcription factor family in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). Treatment with abscisic acid (ABA) induced AtMYB44 transcript accumulation within 30 min. The gene was also activated under various abiotic stresses, such as dehydration, low temperature, and salinity. In transgenic Arabidopsis carrying an AtMYB44 promoter-driven beta-glucuronidase (GUS) construct, strong GUS activity was observed in the vasculature and leaf epidermal guard cells. Transgenic Arabidopsis overexpressing AtMYB44 is more sensitive to ABA and has a more rapid ABA-induced stomatal closure response than wild-type and atmyb44 knockout plants. Transgenic plants exhibited a reduced rate of water loss, as measured by the fresh-weight loss of detached shoots, and remarkably enhanced tolerance to drought and salt stress compared to wild-type plants. Microarray analysis and northern blots revealed that salt-induced activation of the genes that encode a group of serine/threonine protein phosphatases 2C (PP2Cs), such as ABI1, ABI2, AtPP2CA, HAB1, and HAB2, was diminished in transgenic plants overexpressing AtMYB44. By contrast, the atmyb44 knockout mutant line exhibited enhanced salt-induced expression of PP2C-encoding genes and reduced drought/salt stress tolerance compared to wild-type plants. Therefore, enhanced abiotic stress tolerance of transgenic Arabidopsis overexpressing AtMYB44 was conferred by reduced expression of genes encoding PP2Cs, which have been described as negative regulators of ABA signaling.  (+info)

ABA-induced stomatal closure was suppressed in the pldα1 pldδ double mutant but not in the pld single mutants. The pldα1 and pldδ mutations reduced ABAinduced phosphatidic acid production in epidermal tissues. Expression of either PLDα1 or PLDδ complemented ...
The glucosinolate-myrosinase system is a well-known defense system that has been shown to induce stomatal closure in Brassicales. Isothiocyanates are highly reactive hydrolysates of glucosinolates, and an isothiocyanate, allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), induces stomatal closure accompanied by elevation of free cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+](cyt)) in Arabidopsis. It remains unknown whether AITC inhibits light-induced stomatal opening. This study investigated the role of Ca2+ in AITC-induced stomatal closure and inhibition of light-induced stomatal opening. AITC induced stomatal closure and inhibited light-induced stomatal opening in a dose-dependent manner. A Ca2+ channel inhibitor, La3+, a Ca(2+)chelator, EGTA, and an inhibitor of Ca2+ release from internal stores, nicotinamide, inhibited AITC-induced [Ca2+](cyt) elevation and stomatal closure, but did not affect inhibition of light-induced stomatal opening. AITC activated non-selective Ca2+-permeable cation channels and inhibited ...

Plant stomata. Light micrograph of stomatal pores on the surface of a kidney bean (Phaseolus sp.) leaf. The stomata are gaps (white) within two guard cells (blue, kidney-shaped). Stomata are pores that regulate the exchange of gases and water vapour into and out of the plant. The guard cells regulate this by expanding and deflating in response to osmotic pressure. When they expand, this causes them to move apart from one another and open the pore. This image was created using an epithelial peel to chemically remove the top layer of the leaf.

Stomata, surrounded by pairs of guard cells, regulate gas exchange between plants and the environment, thus being critical for plant growth. On the other hand, a variety of bacteria, oomycetes, and fungi exploit stomatal openings as major invasion routes (1, 2). To prevent microbe invasion, plants can recognize the so-called microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) that are highly conserved in the whole class of microbes, such as flagellin for bacteria and chitin oligosaccharides (CTOSs) for fungi, leading to stomatal immunity or stomatal defense, including stomatal closure and inhibition of stomatal opening (3⇓-5). Recent studies have focused on bacterium-guard cell interaction and found that pathogenic bacteria secrete phytotoxins and proteins, termed as effectors, to suppress bacterial MAMP-induced stomatal immunity (3⇓-5). Although many pathogenic fungi penetrate through stomata, posing major threats to crop production and consequently human nutrition, the fungus-guard cell ...
Chloroplasts are a key feature of most guard cells; however, the function of these organelles in stomatal responses has been a subject of debate. This review examines evidence for and against a role of guard cell chloroplasts in stimulating stomatal opening. Controversy remains over the extent to which guard cell Calvin cycle activity contributes to stomatal regulation. However, this is only one of four possible functions of guard cell chloroplasts; other roles include supply of ATP, blue-light signalling and starch storage. Evidence exists for all these mechanisms, but is highly dependent upon species and growth/measurement conditions, with inconsistencies between different laboratories reported. Significant plasticity and extreme flexibility in guard cell osmoregulatory, signalling and sensory pathways may be one explanation. The use of chlorophyll a fluorescence analysis of individual guard cells is discussed in assessing guard and mesophyll cell physiology in relation to stomatal function. ...
Microbial entry into host tissue is a critical first step in causing infection in animals and plants. In plants, it has been assumed that microscopic surface openings, such as stomata, serve as passive ports of bacterial entry during infection. Surprisingly, we found that stomatal closure is part of a plant innate immune response to restrict bacterial invasion. Stomatal guard cells of Arabidopsis perceive bacterial surface molecules, which requires the FLS2 receptor, production of nitric oxide, and the guard-cell-specific OST1 kinase. To circumvent this innate immune response, plant pathogenic bacteria have evolved specific virulence factors to effectively cause stomatal reopening as an important pathogenesis strategy. We provide evidence that supports a model in which stomata, as part of an integral innate immune system, act as a barrier against bacterial infection.
Calcium ions are known to play an important part in signal transduction in stomatal guard cells. In Cummelina communis L., stomatal opening in isolated epidermis is strongly inhibited if the calcium concentration in the incubation medium is 0.1 mol mol m−3 or greater, It can be assumed that in the intact leaf, the apoplastic concentration of free calcium in the vicinity of the guard cells must be kept below this level if interference with stomatal functioning is to be avoided.. When C. communis was grown with 15 mol m−3 calcium in the rhizosphere, the concentration of free calcium in the xylem sap in the shoot was found to be 3.76 mol m−3. A mechanism is clearly needed for reducing this concentration as the sap traverses the apoplast between the xylem and the stomatal guard cells. Evidence is presented here that the deposition of calcium oxalate in cells of the leaf achieves the necessary regulation. The protective role of the six specialized subsidiary cells in this species appears to be ...

Bacteria use stomatal pores as a point of entry to invade plant leaves. As a first line of defense, plants attempt to counteract this attack by restricting bacterial entry simply by closing the stomata. This happens via reduction in turgor pressure of the two guard cells flanking the stomatal pore, the double doors of the entryway, causing the guard cells to become slack and thereby reducing the pore size.. It is well known that this stomatal immunity mechanism in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) occurs when the FLAGELLIN SENSING2 (FLS2) and BRASSINOSTEROID INSENSITIVE1-ASSOCIATED KINASE1 (BAK1) receptor complex recognizes the flg22 moiety (a pathogen-associated molecular pattern [PAMP]) of bacterial flagellin and transmits downstream signals bringing about PAMP-triggered immunity (Sun et al., 2013). And, for almost 15 years, it has been recognized that virulent bacterial strains can re-open the stomatal pores as a counter measure to the initial stomatal closure mediated by defense, ...

The plant SLAC1 anion channel controls turgor pressure in the aperture-defining guard cells of plant stomata, thereby regulating the exchange of water vapour and photosynthetic gases in response to environmental signals such as drought or high levels of carbon dioxide. Here we determine the crystal structure of a bacterial homologue (Haemophilus influenzae) of SLAC1 at 1.20 Å resolution, and use structure-inspired mutagenesis to analyse the conductance properties of SLAC1 channels. SLAC1 is a symmetrical trimer composed from quasi-symmetrical subunits, each having ten transmembrane helices arranged from helical hairpin pairs to form a central five-helix transmembrane pore that is gated by an extremely conserved phenylalanine residue. Conformational features indicate a mechanism for control of gating by kinase activation, and electrostatic features of the pore coupled with electrophysiological characteristics indicate that selectivity among different anions is largely a function of the energetic ...
False colour scanning electron micrograph of open stomata on the surface of a tobacco leaf Nicotiana tabacum. Stomata are breathing pores scattered over the leaf surface, and sometimes stem, that regulate the exchange of gases between the leafs interior and the atmosphere. Stomatal closure is a natural response to darkness or drought as a means of conserving water. Each pore is controlled by the turgor of two guard cells on either side; when the guard cells are full of water the pore is open; when they lose turgor, the pore closes. Some of the pores here are still growing & are small. Magnification: X 214 at 35mm size. Original is BW print b745/169. - Stock Image B745/0189
Stomata have a key role in the regulation of gas exchange and intercellular CO2 concentrations of leaves. Guard cells sense internal and external signals in the leaf environment and transduce these signals into osmoregulatory processes that control stomatal apertures. This research proposal addresses the characterization of the sensory transduction of the CO2 signal in guard cells. Recent studies have shown that in Vicia leaves kept at constant light and temperature in a growth chamber, changes in ambient CO2 concentrations cause large changes in guard cell zeaxanthin that are linear with CO2-dependent changes in stomatal apertures. Research proposed here will test the hypothesis that zeaxanthin function as a transducer of CO2 signals in guard cells. Three central aspects of this hypothesis will be investigated: CO2 sensing by the carboxylation reaction of Rubisco in the guard cell chloroplast, which would modulate zeaxanthin concentrations via changes in lumen pH; transduction of the CO2 signal by
Both OsMUTE and ZmMUTE are expressed during stages in which the stomatal cell files are forming, suggesting that MUTE acts at an earlier stage of stomatal development in grasses than in Arabidopsis. Consistent with these findings, a GUS reporter driven by OsMUTE 5′ regulatory regions in Arabidopsis exhibited an SPCH-like expression pattern in young leaves. Although both ZmMUTE and OsMUTE can partially complement mute, their overexpression phenotypes are substantially different than that of MUTE. Expression of 35S::OsMUTE in an spch background allowed us to uncouple cell division from cell fate promotion. In plants with no stomatal lineage, MUTE can drive cells to a GMC (and later stomatal) fate; however, OsMUTE produces primarily cell divisions, a phenotype that is not only different from that of MUTE, but which in fact resembles the phenotypes produced by MPKTD-altered variants of SPCH (Lampard et al., 2008).. Divergent behavior of MUTE homologs might be expected if we consider the ...
Photosynthetic carbon fixation by plant leaves uses atmospheric CO2 as a substrate. In terrestrial plants, the carbon dioxide entering the leaf shares its diffusion pathway with the water lost by evaporation at the leaf surfaces. To avoid desiccation, plants regulate their gas exchange, minimizing water loss with minimal curtailment of CO2 uptake. Gas exchange in leaves is controlled by a pair of guard cells surrounding the stomatal pores in the leaf epidermis. Guard cells function as turgor valves: when the plant has an abundant water supply and the environmental conditions favor high photosynthetic rates, guard cells are turgid and the stomatal pores are wide open. At night, or under stress, stomata close and water evaporation is reduced. Guard cells are continuously sensing the leaf environment and the perceived environmental signals are transduced into appropriate turgor levels. We study sensory transduction in guard cells at different levels of organization. Stomatal responses in the whole ...
Stomatal guard cells play a key role in gas exchange for photosynthesis and in minimizing transpirational water loss from plants by opening and closing the stomatal pore. The bulk of the osmotic content driving stomatal movements depends on ionic flu
The thrust of Professor Raghavendras research has been on photosynthetic carbon metabolism and its interactions with mitochondrial respiration and nitrogen metabolism. His group has also contributed significantly to the topic of bioenergetics and signaling components of guard cells in relation to stomatal function. Many of the papers from the group on the topic of photosynthetic carbon metabolism and signal transduction in stomatal guard cells are all highly cited.. ...
In development, pattern formation requires that cell proliferation and differentiation be precisely coordinated. Stomatal development has served as a useful model system for understanding how this is accomplished in plants. Although it has been known for some time that stomatal development is regula …
Guard cells, which form stomatal pores in the leaf epidermis of higher plants, can respond to various environmental stimuli, including light, drought, and pathogen infection (Israelsson et al., 2006; Melotto et al., 2006; Shimazaki et al., 2007). To regulate carbon dioxide uptake for photosynthesis, transpirational water loss, and innate immunity adequately, plants have developed a fine-tuned signal transduction system in guard cells.. The volatile phytohormone methyl jasmonate (MeJA) regulates various physiological processes, including pollen maturation, tendril coiling, and responses to wounding and pathogen attack (Liechti and Farmer, 2002; Turner et al., 2002). Similar to abscisic acid (ABA), MeJA plays a role in the induction of stomatal closure (Gehring et al., 1997; Suhita et al., 2003, 2004). Jasmonate-induced stomatal closure has been observed in various plant species, including Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana; Suhita et al., 2004; Munemasa et al., 2007; Saito et al., 2008), Hordeum ...

Blue light is of course a main contributor to photosynthesis via chlorophyll, but it also influences a plant in other ways. Blue light is typically encountered in nature at midday, when the angle of the sun is directly vertical or close to it. This would usually be a time of peak intensity and heat, therefore in many plants high intensities of blue light cause the chlorophylls to migrate to the bottom of the cell for shielding. Moreover, cryptochrome is a phytochemical that absorbs the blue spectrum and initiates phototropism (growing towards light), plus sets a plants circadian rhythm (in combination with phytochrome and the photoperiod). Interestingly, strong blue light reduces leaf intermodal length in a plant and causes it to grow compact and bushy, not wasting energy on stem length, which would be unnecessary in blue dominant full sun conditions. Many growers use blue light to keep plants compact and under control. In addition plant stomata number increases with the intensity of the blue ...
FAMA encodes a bHLH-domain protein that resides in the nucleus and has transcriptional activation activity in a heterologous system. More than 160 different bHLH-containing proteins are predicted in the Arabidopsis genome, but only a small minority of Arabidopsis bHLH proteins have been characterized in terms of DNA binding, protein complex formation, or biological function (Heim et al., 2003; Toledo-Ortiz et al., 2003). No functional characterization has been reported for any other member of FAMAs subclass. The FAMA clade proteins do not contain the canonical R2R3-MYB interacting domains. We found that FAMA is capable of binding related bHLH proteins but not an R2R3-type MYB (Figures 4H and 4I). The DNA binding capabilities of plant bHLHs vary. Some bHLHs appear to require interaction with other proteins for interaction with DNA (Zimmermann et al., 2004), whereas others, notably the phytochrome interacting factor proteins involved in phytochrome-mediated light responses, have been shown to ...
Future projections of east Amazonian precipitation indicate drying, but they are uncertain and poorly understood. In this study we analyze the Amazonian precipitation response to individual atmospheric forcings using a number of global climate models. Black carbon is found to drive reduced precipitation over the Amazon due to temperature-driven circulation changes, but the magnitude is uncertain. CO|SUB|2|/SUB| drives reductions in precipitation concentrated in the east, mainly due to a robustly negative, but highly variable in magnitude, fast response. We find that the physiological effect of CO|SUB|2|/SUB| on plant stomata is the dominant driver of the fast response due to reduced latent heating and also contributes to the large model spread. Using a simple model, we show that CO|SUB|2|/SUB| physiological effects dominate future multimodel mean precipitation projections over the Amazon. However, in individual models temperature-driven changes can be large, but due to little agreement, they largely

On arrival in the leaf apoplast, ABA affects stomatal closure, but then, in order for stomata to reopen on rehydration, it is essential that excess ABA in the apoplast be metabolized quickly. …the epidermis are paired, chloroplast-containing guard cells, and between each pair is formed a small opening, or pore, called a stoma (plural: stomata). The pattern of birefringence indicates the microfibrils in the extracellular matrix are arranged radially. In addition to the nucleus, guard cells contain chloroplasts, which are not present in other epidermal cells. How do guard cells know how to do their job? 1) Protect the endodermis 2) Accumulate K+ and close the stomata 3) contain chloroplasts that import K+ directly into the cells 4) guard against mineral loss through the stomata 5) help balance the photosynthesis-transpiration compromise I cant decide between 2 and 5 can anyone help?

Organic acids play an integral role in plant primary metabolism, where they are involved in fundamental pathways such as, the tricarboxylic acid cycle, C3-, C4- and CAM-photosynthesis and the glyoxylate cycle. They also arise as products of the degradation of more reduced compounds and are interconverted in many plant tissues. Organic acids, such as malate, fumarate, lactate, and citrate, have essential functions in many cellular processes such as stomatal function, phosphorous acquisition, aluminium tolerance, communication with microorganisms, CO2 concentrating metabolism, temporary carbon storage, interchange of reductive power among subcellular compartments, and pH regulation. They also play a critical role in the regulation of plant development and growth, as well as in regulation of both primary and specialized metabolic pathways, some of which are involved in the response to both abiotic and biotic stress. Moreover, they play roles as signalling molecules, not only as allosteric regulators of

My laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanisms that regulate plant development and in particular, how environmental signals regulate core developmental pathways. For this purpose I am using stomatal development as a model. Stomata are microscopic pores on the surface of leaves that regulate gas exchange between the plants and their environment, allowing the uptake of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis whilst restricting water loss. This ability to control their gas exchange has allowed plants to colonise a number of environments and was arguably a crucial evolutionary step in the colonization of the land by higher plants.. I welcome applications from prospective home / EU / overseas PhD students and post-doctoral fellows ...
