Transcriptional regulation of ROS controls the transition from proliferation to differentiation in the root
ABSTRACT: We isolated the meristematic and elongation zones of Col-0, upb1-1 mutant and 35S::UPB1-3YFP/upb1-1 plants by micro-dissection and extracted RNA from each section independently. To identify genes that might mediate UPB1 function we conducted a series of microarray experiments. The spatial distribution of the UPB1 protein suggested that it might exert a different effect on gene expression in the meristematic and elongation zones. Therefore, we isolated the meristematic and elongation zones by micro-dissection and extracted RNA from each section independently. Overall design: Total RNA was isolated from approximately 60 meristem- and elongation zones of Col-0, upb1-1 and 35S::UPB1-3YFP #2 6 day old plants. Two biological replicates were performed for each experiment.

Project description:We isolated cells in the different developmental zones of the A. thaliana root at 3,4,5,6 and 7 days old (DO) Overall design: PET111:GFP seedlings were grown for 3,4,5,6, or 7 days (2 biological replicates per time point). GFP negative cells were collected from the meristematic zone (MZ) and elongation zone (EZ) to eliminate columella cells from root tip. RNA was extracted from GFP negative cells and sequenced
Project description:Paired-end RNA-Seq libraries were constructed for three root sections of the roots of barley cv. Clipper, and landrace Sahara, grown under control and salt-treated (100 mM NaCl) conditions on agar plates in quadruplicate. Experiments were conducted in a temperature-controlled growth cabinet at 17 C in the dark. After three days of germination, seminal roots were dissected according to the following steps: A 1.5 mm long section marked Zone 1 (meristematic zone) was taken from the root tip. A second section (Zone 2) was dissected from the elongation zone up to a third section, Zone 3 (maturation zone), which was excised at the point of visible root hair elongation up to 34 of the entire root. Four biological replicates were generated for each sample in four separate experiments totaling 48 samples. All RNA-seq libraries were constructed and paired-end sequenced (100 bp) on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 system at the Australian Genome Research Facility (Melbourne, Australia).

Project description:Analysis of gene expression in the meristematic zone of Arabidopsis roots overexpressing miR396 Overall design: Meristems of wt and 35S:miR396 were microdissected and subjected to microarray analysis
Project description:Arabidopsis seedlings, of both wild-type and an ARF7/ARF19 double knockout mutant, were grown to 7 days post-germination. The roots were then dissected into 5 developmental zones, the meristem, early elongation zone, late elongation zone, mature root and lateral root zone. The sections then underwent transcriptional profiling to identify processes and regulatory events specific and in common to the zones.
Project description:The Arabidopsis thaliana DRINK ME gene (bZIP30; AT2G21230) is a member of the bZIP transcription factor family. Overexpression of DKM leads to a dwarf plant phenotype and defects in meristematic and reproductive tissues. This experiment aims at identifying the differentially experessed genes between wild type (Ws-3) and 35S::DKM inflorescences (with closed buds).
Project description:gene expression profiling in different zones along the gradient of the growing maize leaf balde aover a time course of dirunal cycle and carbon starvation by extension of the night Plants assimilate carbon in their photosynthetic tissues in the light. However, carbon is required during the night, and in non-photosynthetic organs. It is therefore essential that plants manage their carbon resources spatially and temporally and coordinate growth with carbon availability. In growing maize (Zea mays) leaf blades a defined developmental gradient facilitates analyses in the cell division, elongation and mature zones. We investigated the responses of the metabolome and transcriptome and polysome loading, as a qualitative proxy for protein synthesis, at dusk, dawn and 6, 14 and 24 hours into an extended night, and tracked whole leaf elongation over this time course. Starch and sugars are depleted by dawn in the mature zone, but only after an extension of the night in the elongation and division zones. Sucrose recovers partially between 14 and 24 h into the extended night in the growth zones but not the mature zone. The global metabolome and transcriptome track these zone-specific changes in sucrose. Leaf elongation and polysome loading in the growth zones also remain high at dawn, decrease between 6 and 14 h into the extended night and then partially recover indicating that growth processes are determined by local carbon status. The level of sucrose-signaling metabolite trehalose-6-phosphate, and the trehalose-6-phosphate:sucrose ratio are much higher in growth than mature zones at dusk and dawn but fall in the extended night. Candidate genes were identified by searching for transcripts that show characteristic temporal response patterns or contrasting responses to carbon starvation in growth and mature zones. 3 repliucates per time point and leaf region, each pooled form 5 indiviual plants
Project description:RNA-Seq of Arabidopsis thaliana Col-0 and 35S::FLAG-GR-KAN1 plants grown in ambient light or shade. 8 samples (Col-0 wildtype, 35S::FLAG-GR-KAN1 each in shade or ambient light, each with mock or Dexamethasone treatment) with two technical replicates were sequenced.
Project description:Phytohormones play crucial roles in regulating many aspects of plant development. Although much has been learned about the effects of individual hormones, cross-talk between and integration of different hormonal signals are still not well understood. We present a study of MINI ZINC FINGER 1 (MIF1), a putative zinc finger protein from Arabidopsis, and suggest that it may be involved in integrating signals from multiple hormones. MIF1 homologs are highly conserved among seed plants, each characterized by a very short sequence containing a central putative zinc finger domain. Constitutive overexpression of MIF1 caused dramatic developmental defects, including dwarfism, reduced apical dominance, extreme longevity, dark-green leaves, altered flower morphology, poor fertility, reduced hypocotyl length, spoon-like cotyledons, reduced root growth, and ectopic root hairs on hypocotyls and cotyledons. In addition, 35S::MIF1 seedlings underwent constitutive photomorphogenesis in the dark, with root growth similar to that in the light. Furthermore, 35S::MIF1 seedlings were demonstrated to be non-responsive to gibberellin (GA) for cell elongation, hypersensitive to the GA synthesis inhibitor paclobutrazol (PAC) and abscisic acid (ABA), and hyposensitive to auxin, brassinosteroid and cytokinin, but normally responsive to ethylene. The de-etiolation defect could not be rescued by the hormones tested. Consistent with these observations, genome-scale expression profiling revealed that 35S::MIF1 seedlings exhibited decreased expression of genes involved in GA, auxin and brassinosteroid signaling as well as cell elongation/expansion, and increased expression of ABA-responsive genes. We propose that MIF1, or the protein(s) with which MIF1 interacts, is involved in mediating the control of plant development by multiple hormones. Overall design: The experiment was designed to compared expression profiles of wild type (vector transformed Col) and 35S::MIF1 seedlings grown in the dark or white light. Twelve affymetrix ATH1 arrays were used for three biological replicates, six for comparison of light-grown seedlings and the other six for dark-grown seedlings. Wild-type seedlings were from three independent vector transformant lines(#1, #4 and #7). For the 35S::MIF1 transgenic seedlings, MIF1OE#124 was used for the first and second replicates, and MIF1OE#127 was used for the third replicate.
