Fluorescein diacetate (FDA) staining was performed by soaking the roots in a solution containing 2 µg/ml FDA. R A Y-D Observations of YFP fluorescence by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) revealed that transcription of BRN1 and BRN2 is restricted to the outermost root cap layer (Fig. COL cells are located distally to the quiescent centre (QC), a group of cells near the root apex that divide infrequently. A particular GNOM allele, GNOMmiz2, has been found to specifically affect the hydrotropic but not the gravitropic response by a still unknown function of GNOM other than PIN trafficking (Moriwaki et al., 2014). DM L-J Takahashi X-Y Ahnert To exclude genes artificially activated by SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 overexpression, comparable transcriptome analyses between the triple mutant smb brn1 brn2 and wild-type roots were performed in parallel. Overexpression of SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 induced SCW formation in the root vasculature, as did overexpression of VND/NST/SND members, suggesting that group I NAC transcription factors have a shared regulatory function (Bennett et al., 2010). S S Mucilage secretion is believed to provide a lubricating film that facilitates the soil penetration of the root tip (McKenzie et al., 2013). Scheres Root cap is derived … G JM Moreno The highly restricted expression of BRN1 and BRN2 in the outer root cap layers also suggests a specific role for BRN1 and BRN2 in the later phases of root cap differentiation. The spatial expression patterns of SMB have been investigated by in situ hybridization, transcriptional reporter analysis and complementation of smb mutants with SMB-GFP fusion proteins expressed under the SMB promoter (Bennett et al., 2010; Waki et al., 2013; Willemsen et al., 2008). M Baldwin The root cap supports root growth by protecting the root meristem, sensing gravity and interacting with the rhizosphere through metabolite secretion and cell dispersal. Xue The oldest COL cells, however, are sloughed off alive (del Campillo et al., 2004). COL cells have large volumes and contain statoliths, starch-filled plastids that sediment according to the gravity vector and enable COL cells to sense gravity (Strohm et al., 2012), as described later. The cells secrete mucilage, which acts as a lubricant thus allowing the root to pierce the soil and descend AG T Pan HMO In addition to the lipid synthesis and endomembrane-associated genes described above, a gene encoding a GH28 family protein (At1G65570) was identified among the downstream genes. A SPCP The detaching root cap layers of the rcpg and brn1 brn2 mutants retain a closed bowl-like shape (B,C), whereas those of the wild-type root are flattened (A). I Laux The authors declare no competing or financial interests. Higashitani Furthermore, an orthologue of the transcription factor WUSCHEL is expressed in all cells generated by the apical cell, except the root cap cells, indicating a clearly distinct genetic programme for root cap files (Nardmann and Werr, 2012). Wolverton GH28 proteins have been extensively studied in bacteria and fungi, and their catalytic mechanism and reaction selectivity between endo- and exo-PG have been elucidated at the atomic level (Abbott and Boraston, 2007; Shimizu et al., 2002; van Pouderoyen et al., 2003). In this study, we adopted a comparable transcriptome approach to search for endogenous targets of SMB, BRN1 and BRN2. The resulting pBIB-UAS-RCPG construct was introduced into the host plants harboring pBIN-UAS-GFPer-35S-GVG (Waki et al., 2013). Reduction of RBR levels in the root leads to an increase in undifferentiated stem-cell-like COL layers (Wildwater et al., 2005; Cruz-Ramírez et al., 2013). Answer= Root cap cells do not show any ' abundance' of cell organelles. Strohm van den Toorn Wolff The Arabidopsis genome contains a total of 67 genes encoding putative pectin lyases (Cao, 2012) and several of these genes appear to be expressed in the root cap (Brady et al., 2007). BM Perry Xuan Snel 0 0. A Hijazi Scale bars: 50 µm. Similar to the situation of RBR depletion, FEZ contributes to the arf10 arf16 phenotype, but as FEZ levels are only slightly upregulated in this double mutant, a regulation of FEZ by these ARFs is unlikely (Bennett et al., 2014). From the COL cells, auxin is transported symmetrically towards the peripheral LRC cells by PIN3 and PIN7 proteins, and from there towards the elongation zone through PIN2-expressing LRC and epidermis cells (Swarup et al., 2005). As cells are lost among the soil particles, new ones are added from the meristem behind the cap. This suggests that our combinatorial transcriptome approach successfully identified endogenous target genes. The relationships between the so-called initials and the individual plant tissues to which they give rise differ across plant species. J 2 and Fig. Soil phosphate deficiency is known to lead to a reduction in primary root growth concomitant with an increase in the number of lateral roots (Williamson et al., 2001). L 1, J–L, and 2, A and B; Supplemental Fig. Scale bar: 50 µm. Durand To link SMB functions to root cap characteristics, we performed microarray analysis using dexamethasone (DEX)-inducible SMB-overexpressing plants (35S-iSMB) (Waki et al., 2013). ACR4 and CLV1 expression patterns overlap, and the RLKs can physically interact in planta, suggesting a model in which ACR4 and CVL1 can homo- or heterodimerize to different extents at different sites to repress COL stem cell fate and promote COL differentiation (Stahl et al., 2013). For example, Arabidopsis with mutations in QUARTET2 (QRT2) and QRT3 are defective in the separation of the four daughter cells produced from the microspore mother cell (Preuss et al., 1994). Root cap– also called calyptra, its a cap-like protective covering over the tip of the root. RCPG-RFP fusion proteins localize to the apoplast and complement the defects of the rcpg mutant. A R Lerouge The cap is a unique feature of roots; the tip of the stem has no such structure. As discussed below, both lipid synthesis and endomembrane rearrangement occur at the transition from the statocyte to the secretion cells in the COL lineage (Maitra and De, 1972; Sievers et al., 2002). Structural images were drawn using the PyMOL program (https://www.pymol.org/). These results suggest that the spatial expression pattern of BRN1 and BRN2 is distinct from that of SMB. On the left side, the epidermis (EPI) and successive layers of the columella root cap (COL) and the lateral root cap (LRC) are highlighted. PCR fragments were digested with restriction enzymes at the restriction sites incorporated at the end of the primers and inserted into the pBI-Kan-nlsYG plasmid (Waki et al., 2011). c. the root cap must add cells to cover the additional surface area created by the growing root tip. As these cells exit from the stem cell region, they start to differentiate. Taken together, our ChIP-qPCR analysis suggests that BRN1 and, by inference, BRN2 directly control the expression of RCPG in the outermost root cap layer, and thereby promotes its dehiscence. …living parenchyma cells called the root cap. In roots, the root cap serves a similar purpose. . When the growing root axis is deviated out of the gravity vector, for instance by an obstacle in the soil, statoliths within COL cells change their intracellular position in a gravity-dependent fashion. The COL and EPI/LRC stem cells are striated. Fendrych Please check for further notifications by email. It protects the underlying apical meristem. SMB was independently identified in our root-specific activation tagging screen and overexpression of SMB confers root cap-like characteristics to the epidermis (Waki et al., 2013). Böllhoner In a complementary approach, mutants defective in the biosynthesis of cell wall xyloglucan, cellulose, or pectin were investigated for sloughing defects. Crawford Slightly later, signals were also detected in dLRC cells adjacent to columellas S1 and S3, resulting in staining of the entire LRC along the lower root half of the roots after 3 h (Fig. . . Bennett Considering the dramatically reduced expression of RCPG in the brn1 brn2 mutants, these observations indicate that RCPG acts downstream of BRN1 and/or BRN2 and facilitates the removal of the outermost root cap layer. The root cap is a cup-shaped, loosely cemented mass of parenchyma cells that covers the tip of the root. Kanno Different plant taxa have come up with various solutions to this problem: some plants, including cereals and legumes, dissolve the cellular connection between the outermost root cap cells and their neighbours, releasing long-lived border cells into the rhizosphere (Hamamoto et al., 2006). To test this possibility, chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by quantitative PCR (ChIP-qPCR) was performed using the aforementioned pBRN1-BRN1-GFP plants that complemented the brn1 brn2 mutant (Fig. et al. Based on the finding that SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 activate SCW synthesis in the root vasculature (as do the VND proteins), group I NAC proteins appear to possess a shared activation capacity for SCW synthesis (Bennett et al., 2010). Mendgen W Crossing these reporter lines with wild-type plants restored reporter expression to comparable levels to that in the wild type (Fig. The plane of the COL formative division is marked with a dotted line. (B) A magnified view of the boxed region in A. E In this fashion, auxin is actively transported from the upper parts of the plant via stele cells with basally localized PIN1 (Band et al., 2014). K Today, we know that many of the functions that Darwin attributed to the tip of the radicle are actually controlled by a particular plant organ that ensheathes the growing root tip like a thimble: the root cap. (a) Modified after Prigge and Bezanilla (2010); (b–d) modified after von Guttenberg (1966); (e) modified after Sitte et al. . RA It has been proposed that WOX5, similar to WUSCHEL in the shoot meristem, moves to the stem cells to maintain their dedifferentiated state (Sarkar et al., 2007). Within the root tip, cells differentiate, actively divide, and increase in length, depending on in which zone the cells are located. S As a result, the root cap is organized into multiple well-defined layers of increasing age (Fig. Yet, what is more, the continuous generation of short-lived root cap cells is necessary to facilitate organ size maintenance and the root cap’s position at the tip of the growing root: whenever an EPI/LRC stem cell divides periclinically, a new epidermis module and an adjacent LRC module are created (Wenzel and Rost, 2001). J WH Plants with closed meristems, such as Brassica species, form their cell lineages, including the root cap lineage, from specific stem cells (Fig. Microscopical characterization and role in the interaction with rhizobacteria, The Arabidopsis RWP-RK protein RKD4 triggers gene expression and pattern formation in early embryogenesis, A GAL4-based targeted activation tagging system in Arabidopsis thaliana, Control of root cap formation by MicroRNA-targeted auxin response factors in Arabidopsis, The NAC domain transcription factors FEZ and SOMBRERO control the orientation of cell division plane in Arabidopsis root stem cells, Pharyngeal pouches provide a niche microenvironment for arch artery progenitor specification, βIII spectrin controls the planarity of Purkinje cell dendrites by modulating perpendicular axon-dendrite interactions, Postsynaptic cAMP signalling regulates the antagonistic balance of. A Based on the observation that plants without border cells do not associate with major classes of symbiotic fungi or bacteria, some authors speculate that there is a correlation between border cell production and the ability to form mycorrhizal associations or nitrogen-fixing nodules (Hamamoto et al., 2006). C . Although expression of BRN1 and BRN2 was ectopically activated in the epidermis by the overexpression of SMB, the surface-specific expression was still maintained in spite of the ubiquitous expression of SMB. (B,C) This transcription pattern is not affected by the loss-of-function smb mutation (B) or by SMB overexpression (DEX-treated Q2610-iSMB) (C). This development required more complex and capacious below-ground structures to sustain and stabilize the plant body. Geldner Ehrendorfer In summary, controlling growth directionality of the root tip is of decisive importance for plant growth. (A-C) Reconstructed 3D views of the wild-type (A), rcpg mutant (B) and brn1 brn2 mutant (C) roots. 1B,C). T The ChIP fractions were used as template to measure bound DNA fragments by real-time PCR using the primers listed in Table S2. The root cap is a special layer of tissue which protects the tip of a growing root and helps to anchor the plant. R Since the trajectory of the growing root tip predetermines the location of the mature root, the control of root growth direction is of utmost importance for the entire plant. By contrast, many lateral organs such as leaves and floral organs are produced by groups of cells with limited proliferation activity, leading to organs of predetermined size (Tsukaya, 2003). Cruz-Ramírez et al. Raaijmakers SMB, BRN1 and BRN2 constitute the group I NAC transcription factors together with the VND and NST/SND members that control SCW synthesis in vascular cells (Pereira-Santana et al., 2015). (A,B) A median confocal section of a pRCPG-RCPG-RFP root. This observation suggests that smb LRC cell death is the passive consequence of physical stress exerted by expanding epidermis cells in the elongation zone, rather than an actively controlled PCD process. Beers WG PCR fragments were digested at the SalI and BamHI sites incorporated in the primers and inserted into pBIB-4xGly-sGFP-NosT, which harbors the coding sequence of the 4xGly linker and GFP (S65T) (Niwa et al., 1999) followed by the nopaline synthase (Nos) terminator region. In addition, our GO enrichment analysis revealed an overrepresentation of nuclear- and ER membrane-associated proteins. van den Toorn Kobayashi A similar defect was observed in plants overexpressing microRNA160 (miR160), which targets ARF10 and ARF16. Rootcap definition, the loose mass of epidermal cells covering the apex of most roots, serving to protect the meristematic cells behind it. Spatially overlapping expression of RCPG with BRN1 and BRN2, loss of RCPG expression in the brn1 brn2 mutant, and the ability of BRN1 and BRN2 to activate gene transcription collectively suggest a mechanism in which BRN1 and BRN2 directly bind to the RCPG promoter to activate RCPG expression in the detaching root cap cells. Wachsman With a few exceptions, all plants with true multicellular roots form a root cap, which ensheathes and protects the stem cell niche at the root tip (Fig. D Richter TL NAC transcription factors regulate gene transcription by binding to specific sequences in their target promoters (Ernst et al., 2004). RT-PCR analysis of the root tip segments of homozygous rcpg mutants indicated no accumulation of RCPG mRNA corresponding to the third exon, and no splicing of the second intron harboring the T-DNA (Fig. Santaella This expression pattern is essentially the same in the smb mutant, but dramatically reduced in the smb brn1 brn2 and brn1 brn2 mutants. FEZ is preferentially expressed in the root cap initials and promotes formative divisions. 8A). Leyser Grabowski During the second UK lockdown, we met him (virtually) to hear about the trials and tribulations of his PhD, and discuss his experience of studying in the UK. Bengough Root cap definition is - a protective cap of parenchyma cells that covers the terminal meristem in most root tips. Although RCPG is the only GH28 member among the identified 60 genes, it is possible that root cap separation is preconditioned by NAC-independent PG activities. J Department of Plant Systems Biology, Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie, Department of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Ghent University. On the right side, the same root is shown as a diagram in order to visualize the known (solid red lines) and hypothesized (dashed red lines) major trajectories of auxin flux. Campilho To date, we are only beginning to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the root’s response to low phosphate, which depends on several processes and involves many different gene functions (for an exhaustive review, see Péret et al., 2014). 1c, d). . Bauch JM Green RT-qPCR was performed with the primers listed in Table S2 with the SYBR Premix Ex Taq (Takara Bio). The cell is again tetrahedral, but sometimes daughter cells are cut off from all four faces, with the face directed away from the axis producing the cells of the root cap. Taken together, WOX5 probably controls COL stem cell fate in a non-cell-autonomous manner, although the actual movement of WOX5 out of the QC remains to be shown. . . Measurement of the luciferase activities in the transfected protoplasts revealed that the C-terminal domains of the three NAC factors can activate gene transcription, whereas the N-terminal region containing the NAC DNA-binding domain cannot (Fig. et al. Root cap cells are active secretory cells that produce and exude large amounts of polysaccharide-based mucilage (Wen et al., 2007; Cai et al., 2013). First-strand cDNA synthesis and preparation of Cy3- and Cy5-labeled cRNAs were performed with the Low Input Quick Amp Labeling Kit (Agilent Technologies). . JA N Tisdall Aside from its function to protect the meristem, the root cap has the ability to sense stimuli from its environment and to trigger different tropisms in the root proper, controlling the direction of growth towards or away from diverse environmental cues. Miyazawa AG et al. J Stierhof To analyze the expression patterns of BRN1 and BRN2 in more detail, we generated transgenic plants that express a cell-autonomous, nuclear-localized YFP-GUS (nYG) reporter (Waki et al., 2013) under the BRN1 and BRN2 promoters. 1D,G). Mao Miyashima In the smb mutant, there are additional COL and LRC layers, and the youngest layers are delayed in differentiation (Willemsen et al., 2008). Head over to the Node to find the details of the next event. Marquardt In contrast to COL stem cells, EPI/LRC initials undergo not one but two divergent formative divisions. RFP fluorescence appeared as a band surrounding the detaching root cap layer (Fig. . . Wink Perez-Perez et al. Published by The Company of Biologists Ltd. M It is also called calyptra. The Editors of all The Company of Biologists’ journals have been considering ways in which we can alleviate concerns that members of our community may have around publishing activities during this time. According to the starch–statolith hypothesis, changes in statolith sedimentation create a cellular signal that triggers the actual root growth modulation in the root elongation zone (Haberlandt, 1900). Patterson BRN1 and BRN2 are ectopically expressed only in the epidermal cells exposed to the root surface. A From here, PIN2 transports auxin towards the elongation zone, creating an auxin maximum at the lower flank of the elongation zone. GJ Philippot Z Both the substrate-binding residues and the catalytic Asp residues are perfectly conserved in RCPG (Fig. NE L H These root cap-like epidermal cells were eventually lost in the differentiation zone, possibly via programmed cell death (Waki et al., 2013). The combination of delayed death and increased cell size in the smb mutant LRC cells causes a doubling of root cap organ length. Root meristem adds cells to root cap and the basal region of the root. JM H When COL cells are further displaced towards the distal end of the root cap, their subcellular organization changes abruptly. Band Y These experiments have consistently indicated that SMB is transcribed specifically in the differentiated root cap cells (Fig. Moriwaki Hara-Nishimura Here, a repeated shedding of the dying LRC cells and their still-living neighbouring COL cells occurs. 4). Different auxin response reporters have shown an asymmetric distribution of auxin in the upper and lower flanks of the gravistimulated root tip (Ottenschläger et al., 2003; Band et al., 2012). Fujii Our modeling analyses indicate that RCPG folds into a β-helical structure with an open-ended substrate-binding cleft typical of endo-PGs (Fig. ‘We believe that there is no structure in plants more wonderful, as far as its functions are concerned, than the tip of the radicle’. Follet-Gueye Hyman Nussaume T Therefore, we suspect that the identified membrane-associated proteins function in this transition of COL differentiation, though this hypothesis remains to be tested by future mutant analyses. R COL and LRC cells are generated by distinct groups of stem cells. Next to primary metabolites, diverse secondary metabolites are given off into the rhizosphere, influencing the diverse community of both pathogenic and symbiotic microbiota (Bais et al., 2006). SMB belongs to the group I NAC transcription factors (Pereira-Santana et al., 2015). et al. While new root cap cells are constantly produced by root cap stem cells in an indeterminate fashion, the size and cell number of the root cap are determinate (Barlow, 2003). LOW PHOSPHATE ROOT1 (LPR1) has been identified as a major quantitative trait locus explaining the natural variation of Arabidopsis ecotypes in response to differential phosphate availability (Reymond et al., 2006). The root cap (RC) is a multilayered dome of spindle-shaped parenchyma cells that overlies the growing root tip. Bresinsky F Both epidermal cell length and root length are reduced by over 20% in smb mutants. Creff The smb mutant lacks transcription of BRN1 and BRN2 in the LRC (white arrowheads in E and H), whereas SMB overexpression activates ectopic transcription of BRN1 and BRN2 in the epidermis (open arrowheads in F and I).
