root cap cells

S1B,C). Interestingly, the root-cap-expressed CELLULASE3 (CEL3) and CEL5, which have been implicated in sloughing of COL cells (del Campillo et al., 2004), were strongly downregulated in the smb brn1 brn2 mutants, suggesting a transcriptional regulation of these cell-wall-degrading enzymes by NAC TFs (Bennett et al., 2010). Although only short lived, root cap cells fulfil crucial functions for root growth, root system architecture, and plant life in general. AFM J AK Thus, LRC PCD shows similarities with the PCD type that has been characterized as ‘vacuolar cell death’ (van Doorn et al., 2011).

The rcpg and brn1 brn2 loss-of-function mutants fail to separate from detaching root cap layers. Blanchet . KL Due to its exposed and accessible situation, a plethora of plant biological processes, including hormonal regulation, stem cell maintenance, cellular differentiation, signal transduction, cell wall modification, and PCD, can be conveniently studied in the root cap. PCR products were digested with ApaI and SpeI, and inserted into the pBIB-UAS-NosT plasmid (Waki et al., 2011). A similar phenomenon was also observed in our RCPG-overexpressing lines. The asterisk indicates that roots might have evolved independently in different land plant clades. Durand Finally, we want to thank Annick Bleys for her help with preparing this manuscript. To sum up, whether living root cap border cells are sloughed off, or whether root cap cells undergo PCD and are degraded on the root surface, might have direct consequences for the rhizosphere and plant life style. . P This stands in contrast to the prevalent concept that vacuolar collapse causes cytoplasmic acidification during the terminal phase of plant PCD (Hara-Nishimura and Hatsugai, 2011; van Doorn et al., 2011). NE Bennett Nussaume HMO B 2). N Detaching root cap layers of the rcpg and brn1 brn2 mutants exhibited a closed, bowl-like shape, as opposed to a flat plate-like shape seen in the wild-type roots (Fig. Root cap border cells in pea have been shown to be involved in the local defence against an oomycete pathogen by producing antimicrobial phenolic compounds (Cannesan et al., 2011). Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Y Hence, similar to many animal organs, the root cap shows a cell number and organ size homeostasis in which the disposal of old cells is balanced by the generation of new cells. To search for endogenous targets of SMB, BRN1 and BRN2, we performed transcriptome analyses of the root tip segments of 35S-iSMB and a control line (35S-GVG) treated with DEX for 17 h (Fig. Tsednee 3). F P A Root cap consists a few to tens of cell layers depending on plant species. Loss-of-function smb mutants are defective in root cap dehiscence and cell patterning in the stem cell region. In Arabidopsis, group I NAC transcription factors also include VND/NST/SND proteins, which are known to promote secondary cell wall (SCW) synthesis in vascular cells, and the two BEARSKIN (BRN) transcription factors, BRN1 and BRN2. PCR fragments were digested with restriction enzymes at the restriction sites incorporated at the end of the primers and inserted into the pBI-Kan-nlsYG plasmid (Waki et al., 2011). Fujii Next to primary metabolites, diverse secondary metabolites are given off into the rhizosphere, influencing the diverse community of both pathogenic and symbiotic microbiota (Bais et al., 2006). By contrast, many lateral organs such as leaves and floral organs are produced by groups of cells with limited proliferation activity, leading to organs of predetermined size (Tsukaya, 2003). A mutant in the CLE40 peptide, a member of the CLAVATA3/EMBRYO SURROUNDING REGION (CLE) family, phenocopies acr4 mutants, while root treatment with CLE40 induces premature differentiation of COL stem cells (Stahl et al., 2009). (2014) described a conspicuous corpse autolysis phenotype: nuclear and cytoplasmic material was degraded significantly slower in bfn1 mutants than in the wild type. Blanchet K They have very prominent nucleus that is actively dividing . In living cells preparing for PCD, cytoplasmic GFP (green) and vacuolar targeted RFP (red) are separated (asterisks), while both fluorescent proteins co-localize after vacuolar collapse, indicating cell death (arrows). LR The walls of the cells are mucilaginous. The root cap is a cup-shaped, loosely cemented mass of parenchyma cells that covers the tip of the root. Executive Editor Katherine Brown (virtually) met with the winner of the SDB Conklin Medal, Claude Desplan, and heard about how he first became captivated by Drosophila and neural development, his mentorship style and tips for young scientists. New cells are produced in these growing tips by meristems, groups of undifferentiated cells whose function is to divide by mitosis to produce new cells.Root growth begins at the root apical meristem (RAM). 1E,H). Grabowski B You may not have known it at the time, but what you ate was actually the root of a plant. P Detached border cells can range from dozens to tens of thousands of cells per root tip, depending on the species and age of the root (Hamamoto et al., 2006). M COL stem cells form a cell plate distal to the QC (Fig. During the second UK lockdown, we met him (virtually) to hear about the trials and tribulations of his PhD, and discuss his experience of studying in the UK. . LRC cells do not contain statoliths and are, especially towards the upper part of the meristem, long and slender of shape. Wang I Nakajima The evolution of stem cells at the root tip necessitated specific adaptations to protect these delicate meristematic cells from mechanical damage during growth. Error bars indicate the s.d. Reymond K In Arabidopsis, this is accomplished by programmed cell death of selected LRC cells and the autonomous separation of the remaining live cells (Fendrych et al., 2014). Comparative microarray analyses to identify genes that act downstream of SMB, BRN1 and BRN2. The formation and loss of these cells from the root cap region is a developmentally regulated process that is also controlled by phytohormones and environmental factors. H Berkowitz According to the starch–statolith hypothesis, changes in statolith sedimentation create a cellular signal that triggers the actual root growth modulation in the root elongation zone (Haberlandt, 1900). Y Leyser The underlying mechanisms are not yet understood in detail, but recently, local auxin biosynthesis via the enzyme TRYPTOPHAN AMINOTRANSFERASE OF ARABIDOPSIS1 (TAA1) has been implicated in this process (Bao et al., 2014). Wildwater Campilho The NAC transcription factors SOMBRERO (SMB) and FEZ were identified by a forward genetic screen based on their altered expression of root cap markers (Willemsen et al., 2008). Y As well as moisture, the availability of soluble macronutrients such as phosphate has also been shown to influence root system architecture. Campilho Although several authors suggested the occurrence of a cell death process in the Arabidopsis root cap (Truernit and Haseloff, 2008; Rost, 2011), it has only recently been shown that a developmentally controlled, genetically encoded PCD process takes place in the LRC cells (Fig. This expression pattern was confirmed at the protein level by complementing brn1 brn2 double mutants with BRN1-GFP or BRN2-GFP expressed under the respective BRN promoter (Fig. As described below, this phenotype was rescued with RCPG-RFP proteins expressed under the RCPG promoter (Fig. They have very prominent nucleus that is actively dividing. Our modeling study indicated that RCPG shares a conserved protein folding with known GH28 endo-PGs, as well as perfectly conserved positioning of amino acid residues that are known to be important for catalysis and substrate recognition. In this regard, BRN-dependent activation of lipid synthesis in the outer root cap layers likely provides a molecular basis for a root cap maturation process. MC To address this, we constructed plasmids to express either full-length or segments of SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 proteins fused with the yeast GAL4 DNA-binding domain (GAL4-BD) (Fig. (D-F) Median confocal sections of the wild-type (D), rcpg mutant (E) and brn1 brn2 mutant (F) roots. It has been proposed that WOX5, similar to WUSCHEL in the shoot meristem, moves to the stem cells to maintain their dedifferentiated state (Sarkar et al., 2007). Plasmids that express either full-length or a segment of the NAC polypeptide and the yeast GAL4-BD were constructed by amplifying the corresponding parts of the NAC cDNA fragments by PCR using the primers listed in Table S2. Whole-mount GUS staining suggested that SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 had similar expression patterns in the root cap (Bennett et al., 2010). Wiśniewska The highly restricted expression of BRN1 and BRN2 in the outer root cap layers also suggests a specific role for BRN1 and BRN2 in the later phases of root cap differentiation. . Nguyen K As a consequence, unprocessed LRC cell corpses litter the entire root surface (Fendrych et al., 2014). 4B). Between COL and LRC, there is a zone of gradual transition in which packets of dead, dying, and living LRC and COL cells are shed at intervals (Fig. (A) Nuclear-localized YFP fluorescence indicates ubiquitous transcription of SMB in the differentiated root cap cells. from three independently pooled root tips. Therefore, we suspect that the identified membrane-associated proteins function in this transition of COL differentiation, though this hypothesis remains to be tested by future mutant analyses. 4) (Willemsen et al., 2008). MIZU-KUSSEI1 (MIZ1), a root-cap-localized protein of unknown function, has been shown to be a positive regulator of hydrotropism but not gravitropism. HMO Under laboratory conditions, it has been observed that lateral roots are formed predominantly on the side of a root that is in contact with a moist surface, a phenomenon referred to as hydropatterning (Robbins and Dinneny, 2015). As a consequence, preparation for PCD is delayed and smb mutant LRC cells that enter the root elongation zone are unable to induce regular PCD. The spatial expression patterns of SMB have been investigated by in situ hybridization, transcriptional reporter analysis and complementation of smb mutants with SMB-GFP fusion proteins expressed under the SMB promoter (Bennett et al., 2010; Waki et al., 2013; Willemsen et al., 2008). . U AG Swarup In the root cap of Arabidopsis, two tissue types can be distinguished; the central columella root cap (COL) and the peripheral lateral root cap (LRC) (Fig. First-strand cDNA synthesis and preparation of Cy3- and Cy5-labeled cRNAs were performed with the Low Input Quick Amp Labeling Kit (Agilent Technologies). Y Overexpression of RCPG alters the behavior of the detaching root cap cells. When the growing root axis is deviated out of the gravity vector, for instance by an obstacle in the soil, statoliths within COL cells change their intracellular position in a gravity-dependent fashion. M This asymmetric auxin flux is caused by polarization of the auxin efflux carriers PIN3 and PIN7 to the lower side of the COL cells (Kleine-Vehn et al., 2010).
