Transcription profiling of maize pulvinus after gravity treatment

ABSTRACT: Not much is known about the molecular processes involved during gravitropism in monocot plants such as maize. A microarray based study on the expression of genes after a gravity stimulating the maize pulvinus will provide us with valuable information and a better understanding of the underlying molecular processes involved in monocot gravitropism. Objectives for this study included the identification of genes that were regulated at the transcriptional and translation level during gravitropism in the maize pulvinus. This was achieved by microarray analysis of total RNA versus polyribosome associated RNA during a time-course of gravity stimulation of the maize pulvinus. Experiment Overall Design: Six week old maize plants were gravity stimulated by 90º reorientation. Upper (slow elongation) and lower (fast elongation) halves of the most gravity competent pulvini were harvested over a time course ranging from 2 minutes up to one hour (2min, 5 min, 15min, 30min, 60min). Pulvini samples from control (vertical, no gravity stimulation) plants were harvested and labeled as left and right. For each time point, total mRNA and polyribosome-associated mRNA were purified and the transcript profiles analyzed using Affymetrix GeneChip® Maize Genome Arrays. The experiment was repeated twice (two growing seasons) and represent two biological repetitions.
