Uninvited guests
Phytoplasmas are prokaryotic plant pathogens that colonize the sieve elements of their host plant, causing severe alterations in phloem function and impairment of assimilate translocation. In an ongoing collaboration between Simonetta Santi’s group from the Universitá degli Sudi in Udine (Italy) and Wolfgang Schmidt’s team, the researchers showed that in Fe-deficient plants phytoplasma infection perturbed the Fe deficiency response in roots, possibly by interference with the synthesis or transport of a promotive signal transmitted from the leaves to the roots (BMC Genomics 20: 703). Recently, the two groups teamed up to investigate effects of ‘Ca.P. solani’ infection on mineral element allocation. The study revealed that the response to phytoplasma includes significant changes in the homeostasis of ions such as K+, Ca2+, Mg2+, Fe2+ and Mn2+ and dramatic alterations in the expression of related transmembrane transporters in the host plant......
HISTONE DEACETYLASE15 participates in nitrogen deficiency- and sucrose-induced anthocyanin biosynthesis
Dr. Ming-Hsiun Hsieh’s laboratory reported that nitrogen deficiency- and sucrose-induced anthocyanin biosynthesis was modulated by HISTONE DEACETYLASE15 (HDA15) in Arabidopsis. Nitrogen deficiency, high sucrose, and methyl jasmonate, but not H2O2 and phosphate starvation, enhanced anthocyanin accumulation by increasing histone acetylation and expression of anthocyanin biosynthetic and regulatory genes in the hda15 mutant. HDA15 may modulate anthocyanin biosynthesis under certain stress conditions.
Mating-driven variability in olfactory local interneuron wiring
Variations in neuronal connectivity occur widely in nervous systems from invertebrates to mammals. Yet, it is unclear how neuronal variability originates, to what extent and at what timescales it exists, and what functional consequences it might carry. Using genetic labeling and electron microscopy connectomics, we show that an identified inhibitory olfactory local interneuron, TC-LN, exhibits extraordinary variability in its glomerular innervation patterns. TC-LN’s innervation of the VL2a glomerulus is sexually dimorphic, is influenced by female’s courtship experience, and correlates with food intake in mated females. Mating also affects output connectivity of TC-LN to specific local interneurons. We propose that mating-associated variability of TC-LNs regulates how food odor is interpreted by an inhibitory network to modulate feeding......
Moss-fungal interactions reveal the trophic flexibility of fungi and the positive effects on moss growth
All plants harbor diverse microorganisms, including endophytic fungi living inside plants without causing apparent symptoms. Although mosses are present in all terrestrial environments and represent one of the earliest plant lineages adapted to terrestrial life, their interactions with fungi are often overlooked......
