Differential transcript regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana and the halotolerant Lobularia maritima indicates genes with potential function in plant salt adaptation.
Gene. 2008 Nov 01; 423(2):142-8.GENE

Abstract

Salt stress is an environmental factor that severely impairs plant growth and productivity. Salinity-induced transcript accumulation was monitored in the salt-sensitive Arabidopsis thaliana and the related salt-tolerant Lobularia maritima using cDNA-arrays with expressed sequence tags derived from a cDNA subtraction library of salt-stressed L. maritima. The expression profiles revealed differences of the steady state transcript regulation in A. thaliana and L. maritima in response to salt stress. The differentially expressed transcripts include those involved in the control of gene expression as a transcription factor II homologue as well as signal transduction elements such as a serine/threonine protein kinase, a SNF1-related protein kinase AKIN10 homologue, and protein phosphatase 2C. Other ESTs with differential regulation patterns included transcripts encoding proteins with function in general stress responses and defense and included a peroxidase, dehydrins, enzymes of lipid and nitrogen metabolism, and functionally unclassified proteins. In a more detailed analysis the basic leucine zipper transcription factor AtbZIP24 showed differential transcript abundance in A. thaliana and L. maritima in response to salt stress. Transgenic AtbZIP24-RNAi lines showed improved growth and development under salt stress that was correlated with changed Cl(-) accumulation. The data indicate that AtbZIP24 functions as a transcriptional repressor in salt-stressed A. thaliana that negatively regulates growth and development under salinity in context of controlling Cl(-) homeostasis. Monitoring the differential and tissue specific global regulation of gene expression during adaptation to salinity in salt-sensitive and halotolerant plants is a promising and powerful approach to identify novel elements of plant salt stress adaptation.
