Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. Article ( PDF Available) in Nature () · May with. Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. PUBLISHED: Apr CITE AS: Nature. Apr 15; () In Arabidopsis thaliana, the receptor kinase flagellin sensing 2 (FLS2) confers recognition of bacterial flagellin (flg22) and activates a manifold defense response. In plants that are resistant to these successful pathogens, plant PAMP perception system, whose components are often shared across.

Intraspecific variation in flg22 binding was assessed within Arabidopsis lyrata and Cardamine hirsuta ; A. In addition, we observed allelic differences in FLS2 cis -regulation. Thus, there is no fixed optimal level of flg22 binding either in the A. Among distantly related species, it is known that the specificity of ligand recognition can change Chinchilla et al.

First, FLS2 function may maintain an optimal affinity to flagellin that maximizes bacterial detection despite individual variation in flagellin. For permissions, please e-mail: Ideally, the genetics of flgbinding variation should be established by QTL mapping, but the flgbinding assay is not amenable for such large-scale experiments.

There is indeed tremendous diversity among pathogen strains in the effectors that they harbor Charity et al. Four biological replicates were performed. View large Download slide. Consider the following examples, but note that this is not an exhaustive list: Finally, our study reveals striking similarities in the evolution of flagellin perception in plants and animals.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception.

The presence of FLS2 receptors in distant taxa, despite evasion of flagellin recognition by some microbial strains, suggests that FLS2 retains its relevance for defense Felix et al. Determining the genetic basis and evaluating the importance of quantitative functional variation of PRRs and R proteins will be fundamental for the effective utilization of allelic variation for disease resistance in crops Poland et al.


This is in agreement with the very low flg22 binding detected in Stor despite a regular level of FLS2 protein fig. This bp long region includes bp noncoding DNA upstream of the coding region, the signal peptide, and the N-terminal part of the LRR region.

We further analyzed FLS2 transcript levels in the parental genotypes and respective F1 crosses by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction PCR supplementary fig.

A history of recurrent positive selection at the toll-like receptor 5 in primates. However, the importance of flagellin perception for disease resistance has, until now, not been demonstrated. This correlation demonstrates that higher levels of flg22 binding associates with reduced Pto DC proliferation. Pyrosequencing quantification of relative allelic expression was performed hacterial cDNA samples.

Indeed, QTL mapping revealed that variation in flginduced seedling growth inhibition colocalized with the FLS2 locus. Binding of arabidopsiz, as measured in figure 1as a function of bacterial numbers of Pseudomonas syringae pv. Error bars in y direction represent three technical replicates of two independent pools of 12 plants.

Using a highly sensitive flgbinding assay, we demonstrate the existence of pervasive quantitative variation for flg22 perception. We chose to use a synthetic flg22 peptide that correlates best to the consensus sequence of the most conserved region of eubacterial flagellin and is identical fflagellin the flg22 peptide sequence in strains of the A.

A summary of the content will be automatically included. Yet, TLR5 also exhibits quantitative variation in response to bacterial disease and associates with negative effects, such as autoimmune disorders Hawn et al. The action of variants at genes unknown to be related to flg22 perception but mapping close to the FLS2 locus, cannot be excluded.

The genotype Ws-0 is known to carry a non-functional FLS2 allele and was used as a negative control Zipfel et al. Additional QTLs were detected in these mapping populations supplementary fig.

This result, however, should be taken with care because we observed great variance in FLS2 transcript levels across experiments, which we could not explain. Mean values of inhibition of seedling growth per accession are labeled with the according accession name. It is tempting to speculate that variation in flg22 perception is maintained via a trade-off between defense and growth. With the exception of Stor, all five A. The FLS2 epitopes of N13 and MN47 most probably present lower affinity for the FLS2 antibody since they differ from the epitope harbored by Col-0, against which the antibody was developed.


Although the corresponding flg22 peptide of the Pto DC strain flagelin from the peptide used in the assay of flg22 binding by four amino acid residues in the N-terminal part, it still elicits a strong FLS2-mediated defense response Felix et al.

RNA was extracted from each of 10—12 independent seedlings in two biological independent trials. Mutant fls2 dusease efr T-DNA insertion lines are in Col-0 genetic background filled circles and diamonds, respectively. Latest Most Read Most Cited Influence of recombination and GC-biased gene conversion on the adaptive and non-adaptive substitution rate in mammals vs. It remains possible that the cis -regulatory differences we observe have detectable consequences at the phenotypic level.

Dynamics of disease resistance polymorphism at the Rpm1 locus of Arabidopsis. Under such a scenario, nucleotide variation at the FLS2 receptor would be expected to display some signature of natural selection, just as was reported for some R proteins and display signs of accelerated amino acid evolution in the LRR ectodomain.

Don’t have an account? These data altogether show that the intensity of flg22 binding correlates positively with the severity of one of the responses triggered after FLS2 activation. In total, 71 SNPs modified the amino acid sequence table 1but a 5-fold higher average number of pairwise differences at synonymous versus nonsynonymous positions 0.

A common dominant TLR5 stop codon polymorphism abolishes flagellin signaling and is associated with susceptibility to rseistance disease.

Therefore, over such microevolutionary time scales, affinity for flg22 can remain unchanged. Western blotting was performed as by Gohre et al.
