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.

At the functional level, two flagellon scenarios can be anticipated for the FLS2 locus, depending on the spectrum of microbial strains to be detected: Indeed, if a molecular novelty rises in frequency as a result of consistent selection on the phenotype it alters, we should observe a marked molecular difference between species and no remaining phenotypic variation within species.

Data represent three independent replicates.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception.

We were interested in estimating whether variation in flg22 perception covaries with the response to other PAMP signals. Any view or opinion expressed in any Material is the view or opinion of the person who posts such view or opinion. Abstract Much is known about the evolution of plant immunity components directed against specific pathogen strains: You work at qrabidopsis same institute as any of the authors.

Next, differential growth was calculated for each RIL line as described above for inhibition of seedlings growth, and the quantitative trait loci QTLs controlling its variation were mapped.

These were different from the flginsensitive genotypes. Coomassie staining is shown as control for equal loading. We reveal extensive variation in flg22 perception, most of which results from changes in protein abundance.

The experiment was conducted in two independent trials. F1 seedlings were produced by independent crosses performed in both directions to control for possible effects of parental imprinting. Alternatively, FLS2 could evolve so that its affinity for flagellin tracks the flagellin alleles with which it interacts. Elucidating the evolutionary forces controlling the observed variation for flg22 perception is now warranted.


Indeed, specific differences in the recognition of flgrelated peptides have been documented between plant families and associate with changes in the FLS2 ectodomain Chinchilla et al. Quantification of inhibition of seedling growth in presence of nM elf18 Zipfel et al. Identification and mutational analysis of Arabidopsis FLS2 leucine-rich repeat domain residues that contribute to flagellin perception.

Although the corresponding flg22 peptide of the Pto DC strain differs 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.

Incremental steps toward incompatibility revealed by Arabidopsis epistatic interactions modulating salicylic acid pathway activation. We used previously published information to compute genome-wide empirical distributions and disentangle selection at FLS2 from demographic processes Nielsen ; Nordborg et al.

Boxes represent the median, lower, and upper quartile; circles show data points lying outside of the 1. Influence of mutation rate on estimators of genetic differentiation—lessons from Arabidopsis thaliana.

Low levels of polymorphism in genes that control the activation of defense response in Arabidopsis thaliana.

For permissions, please e-mail: 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.

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. I am a Faculty Member who recommended this article.

We therefore have no evidence that different evolutionary forces act on the different regions or functional domains of the gene. We then compared the relative reduction in seedling growth triggered by flg22 and elf Like flginduced inhibition of seedling growth, we measured elfinduced inhibition of seedling growth as fresh mass reduction compared with growth in the absence of trigger and detected substantial variation across 56 genotypes of A.


C Competitive binding of I-flg22 by flg22 presented as the percentage of maximal specific binding. Classified as close New Finding 2.

To date, no other genotype has been found to harbor this mutation. In addition, we observed allelic differences in FLS2 cis -regulation.

Thus, there is no fixed optimal level of flg22 binding either in the A. Latest Most Read Most Cited Influence of recombination and GC-biased gene conversion on the adaptive and non-adaptive substitution rate in mammals vs.

Indeed, QTL mapping revealed that variation in flginduced seedling growth inhibition colocalized with the FLS2 locus. Analysis of flagellin perception mediated by flg22 receptor OsFLS2 in rice.

The flginduced inhibition of seedling growth depends not only on FLS2 but also on Thdough and other unknown molecular components.

Therefore, we quantified differences in allele frequencies between 35 local A. Similarly, the polymorphism segregating at the ACD6 locus in A.

It is actually known that FLS2 is under the control of complex regulatory loops at both the transcript and protein level Robatzek et al. Polymorphism of a complex resistance gene candidate family in wild populations of common bean Phaseolus vulgaris in Argentina: A focus on R gene recognition has arabidolsis early studies of the molecular evolution of immunity genes in plants Stahl et al.

Perception of PAMPs triggers a suite of immune responses normally sufficient to confer immunity against a broad spectrum of potentially infectious microbes. This suggests that one or several molecular variant s common to the two systems control some of the functional variation of PRRs. They show pervasive functional variation and have the potential to coevolve with pathogen aragidopsis.

First, FLS2 function may maintain an optimal affinity to flagellin that maximizes bacterial detection despite individual variation in flagellin. Observed expression levels of FLS2 were generally low and did not reflect variation in FLS2 cis -regulation or differences in protein abundance fig.
