Molecular Characterization of the Transcription Factors in Susceptible Poplar Infected with Virulent Melampsora larici-populina.

ABSTRACT: Transcription factors (TFs) have been shown to play important roles in determining poplar susceptibility. In this study, the transcript profiles of five resistance-related TF groups at different time points were investigated to study the roles of TFs in the compatible interaction between 'Robusta' (Populus nigra × P. deltoides) and the virulent E4 race of Melampsora larici-populina. The susceptibility test indicated that the parasitic process of E4 could be divided into two representative time periods: the infection phase and the production phase. Bioinformatics analysis showed that in these two phases, E4 infection induced a network of TFs in 'Robusta'. Although some TFs responded rapidly and positively, most TFs did not respond to E4, especially during the infection phase. The ethylene, jasmonic acid, and auxin pathways were downregulated, while a calcium-binding protein was upregulated. No other significantly changed phytohormone-related genes were found, which was consistent with the pathological process in the absence of an immune response, suggesting that the lack of response of most TFs during the infection phase of E4 is related to the susceptibility of 'Robusta'.
