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.

Population genetics approaches can track the specific signature left resistanxe natural selection on patterns of nucleotide variation segregating within species Nielsen As flginduced inhibition of seedling growth was correlated with that triggered by elf18, components common to pathways downstream of PAMP perception likely contribute to the observed variation.

Plants and animals recognize microbial invaders by detecting pathogen-associated molecular patterns PAMPs such as flagellin. Altogether, this analysis suggests that, if selection has really acted on the FLS2 locus, we are not in the presence of a simple scenario of positive selection on the phenotypes triggered by flg22 binding on the FLS2 receptor.

Genetic diversity and the evolutionary history of plant immunity genes in two species of Zea.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception.

A Quantification of flg22 binding for selected genotypes representing the extent of flgbinding variation shown in figure 1. At the molecular level, the action of natural selection for R protein diversification is sometimes apparent, but no typical evolutionary pattern can be defined for molecular diversity at R gene loci Michelmore and Meyers ; Bergelson et al. Because loss-of-function mutants show some increase in fresh weight in the presence of the peptide, negative measures of flginduced seedling growth inhibition are obtained.

FLS2-mediated responses also interfere with plant growth. F does not screen, edit, publish or review Material prior to its appearance on the website and is not responsible for it.

This result, however, should be taken percepption care because we observed great variance in FLS2 transcript levels across experiments, which we could not explain. Conversely, reconstitution of FLS2 in the natural loss-of-function genotype Ws-0 increased resistance Zipfel et al. Felix for flg22 peptide variants, R.

The action of variants at genes unknown to be related to flg22 perception but mapping close to the Flxgellin locus, cannot be excluded. Sign In or Create an Account. Wild-type and fls2 mutants both display enhanced resistance when treated with crude bacterial extracts, even devoid disezse elicitor-active flagellin, indicating the existence of functional perception systems for PAMPs other than flagellin.

Pyrosequencing quantification of relative allelic expression was performed on cDNA samples.

Alternatively, FLS2 could evolve so that its affinity for flagellin tracks the flagellin alleles with which it interacts. We further asked whether FLS2 polymorphism showed evidence of local selection. Thus, there is no fixed optimal level of flg22 binding either in the A. Although fls2 mutant plants are as susceptible as the wild type when bacteria are infiltrated into leaves, they are more susceptible to the pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv.

These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law. Extending the analysis to a few more genotypes again highlighted the absence of a direct relationship between FLS2 mRNA abundance and flg22 binding. Observed expression levels of FLS2 were generally low and did not reflect variation in FLS2 cis -regulation or differences in protein abundance fig.

Consider the following examples, but note that this is not an exhaustive list:. Evolutionary costs in the absence of pathogens have been rigorously demonstrated at flagsllin RPM1 locus Tian et al. Flxgellin were different from the flginsensitive genotypes. Boxes represent the median, lower, and upper quartile; circles show data points lying outside of the 1.

Plants and animals recognize microbial invaders by detecting pathogen-associated molecular patterns PAMPs such as flagellin. The observed variation correlates with both the severity of elicited defense responses and bacterial proliferation. Genetic dissection of basal resistance to Pseudomonas syringae pv.

Two distinct evolutionary dynamics can be envisaged for flg22 perception. A stop codon polymorphism of Toll-like receptor 5 is associated with resistance to systemic lupus erythematosus. Therefore, it may have to be tuned to competing physiological demands, for example, during plant growth and development van Boven and Weissing ; Schulenburg et al.

This hierarchical setting allowed taking into account the partition of variation between populations within regions Excoffier Any view or opinion expressed in any Material is the view or opinion of the person who posts such view or opinion. Yet, recombination events were detected, and the breakpoints, that is, positions where neighboring SNPs show four gametic types, revealed a sequence fragment with a distinct frequency spectrum of polymorphism.


Thus, flagellin perception restricts bacterial invasion, probably at an early step, and contributes to the plant’s disease resistance. Additional flagellin peptides tested are described in supplementary table 1 Supplementary Material online. Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic.

Since differences in the perception of flgrelated peptides were reported Felix et al. These include components pivotal for microbial life such as flagellin, a building block of the bacterial motility organ, the bacterial elongation factor Tu, or constituents of the microbial cell wall like fungal chitin. This compound test is robust to both demography and background selection and thus has the greatest specificity to positive selection, while retaining good power.

In addition, strains carrying inactive flg22 variants, able to circumvent FLS2-mediated recognition, have been reported at various taxonomic levels, for example, Agrobacterium tumefaciens and among Xanthomonas campestris strains Felix et al.

Within-species flagellin polymorphism in Xanthomonas campestris pv. It is tempting to speculate that variation in flg22 perception is maintained via a trade-off between defense and growth.

On the other hand, little is known about variation in the more generalist PAMP perception system, whose components are often shared across distant genera Boller and Felix In Arabidopsis thalianathe receptor kinase flagellin sensing 2 FLS2 confers recognition of bacterial flagellin flg22 and activates a manifold defense response.

Dozano-Luran for technical help, and L. Quantitative variation for flgtriggered inhibition of seedling growth may be the result of transcriptional variation encoded at the FLS2 locus. We therefore investigated how variation in flg22 binding may influence bacterial growth in planta. We then compared the relative reduction in seedling growth triggered by flg22 and elf Ideally, the genetics of flgbinding variation should be established by QTL mapping, but the flgbinding assay is not amenable for such large-scale experiments.
