Basis of CP12 phenotype via gene expression patterns in life cycle of CP12 antisense Nicotiana tabacum

ABSTRACT: CP12 is a small nuclear encoded chloroplast protein that has been shown to form a complex with the Calvin cycle enzymes, PRK and GADPH. We have taken an antisense approach in order to address the importance of this regulatory protein on carbon assimilation. Transgenic Nicotiana tabacum cv. Samsun with reduced levels of the CP12 protein, produced by leaf disc transformation with a full length tobacco CP12 cDNA, regulated by the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter. Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation and selection on kanamycin produced primary transformants whose progeny segregate for severity of the antisense CP12 phenotype. Because of the impact of the antisense reductions in CP12 on carbon assimilation, these plants have abnormal morphology of leaves, floral organs, greatly reduced fertility and markedly slower growth rates. Our hypothesis is that the phenotype is exposing the regulatory nature of the CP12 protein. Intermediates leaving the Calvin cycle are essential for the synthesis of hormones and perturbation of hormone balances is a potential source of the morphological and development effects observed in the CP12 antisense plants. Our objective is to understand the CP12 phenotype by identifying changes in gene expression occurring at key stages in the life cycle of the CP12 antisense plants. CP12 antisense and wild type control plants for microarray analysis were germinated in a growth chamber in agar medium with 1% sucrose and 1/2 strength MS; with a 16 h light/8 h dark cycle at 25°C. At 20 days plants were transferred to a controlled environment greenhouse and grown in Fisons Levington F2 compost at 25°C, with light levels above 500 umol m-2 s-1 ;using supplementary lighting in a 16 h light/8 h dark cycle. 3 independent sets of plants (both wild type and CP12 antisense) were grown for preparation of three independent biological replicate RNA samples. RNA was extracted according to the TIGR protocol from plants in the early in all samples. Keywords: Direct comparison Overall design: 13 hybs total

The chloroplast protein CP12 forms a multi-enzyme complex with the Calvin-Benson cycle enzymes phosphoribulokinase (PRK) and NADP-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH). PRK and GAPDH are inactivated when present in this complex, a process shown in vitro to be dependent upon oxidized CP12. Recently we reported on the importance of CP12 in vivo to higher plant metabolism using antisense suppression of CP12 in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum). Our results indicated that while only minor chang  ...[more]
