Transcription profiling of pistils from Arabidopsis wild type, ant-4 mutant and ino-1mutant plants at different developmental stages

ABSTRACT: This experiment was designed to identify genes expressed preferentially in the two integuments of the Arabidopsis ovule. Pistils from wild type and two ovule mutants were compared against each aintegumenta-4 (ant-4) which lacks both integuments and inner no outer (ino-1) which lacks the outer integument. Genes that are highly expressed only in the integuments were expected to be reduced in expression in the mutants, as compared with wild type. Pistils containing ovules through all stages of ovule development prior to pollination were pooled for one experiment (FULL arrays), and for two separate experiments, a set of early differentiation stages (EARLY arrays) and a set of later differentiation stages (LATE ARRAYS) were pooled. Wild type and mutant lines are in the ecotype Landsberg erecta.

Expression-based discovery of candidate ovule development regulators through transcriptional profiling of ovule mutants.

BACKGROUND: Arabidopsis ovules comprise four morphologically distinct parts: the nucellus, which contains the embryo sac, two integuments that become the seed coat, and the funiculus that anchors the ovule within the carpel. Analysis of developmental mutants has shown that ovule morphogenesis relies on tightly regulated genetic interactions that can serve as a model for developmental regulation. Redundancy, pleiotropic effects and subtle phenotypes may preclude identification of mutants affectin  ...[more]
