Effect of boron and iron stress on phytosiderophore production in barley

İnce, Yetkin Çaka
Boron and iron are essential nutrients for growth and development of higher plants. Deficiency and toxicity of them cause significant changes in physiological, cellular and molecular make-up of plants. Iron uptake in barley is mainly achieved by production and release of phytosiderophores to the environment. On the other hand, production of phytosiderophores are affected by concentrations of boron and iron. Four enzymes which function in phytosiderophore hydroxymugineic acid (HMA) production namely NAS, NAAT, IDS2, and IDS3 showed differential expression profiles when plants were treated with different concentrations of iron and boron. In this study, we investigated the potential link between iron, boron, and phytosiderophore production in barley. For this purpose the barley seedlings were treated with deficiency or toxicity of boron and iron as well as combinations of these and expression levels of aforementioned genes were examined.In addition to gene expression analysis, physiological parameters, total boron, iron, and zinc content and photosynthetic performance of seedlings were considered.


Compementation studies to identify genes with roles in zinc efficiency in barley
Yılmaz, Aliye Seda; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2007)
Zinc (Zn) is an essential micronutrient for the growth and development of all organisms. Zinc deficiency is a widespread micronutrient disorder worldwide, which reduces crop yields and the nutritive value of the grain. Understanding the process of zinc absorption and translocation in crop is essential for this purpose. Zinc is taken up by plants and translocated within plants through high-affinity zinc transporter proteins embedded in the plasma membrane. The Zn transporters are induced under Zn deficiency,...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on seed germination, microbial quality, anatomy-morphology and physiological characteristics of garden cress (Lepidium sativum) seedlings
İŞLEK, Cemil; Altuner, Ergin Murat; Ceter, Talip; Alpas, Hami (Informa UK Limited, 2013-06-01)
High hydrostatic pressure is a non-thermal food processing technology that is found to increase the percentage of germination, decrease the germination time and improve the microbial quality of seeds. In this study, pressures of 100-400MPa for 10min at 30 degrees C are used to compare the percentage of germination, the microbial quality of seeds, chlorophyll a and b, and total phenolic compounds concentrations in seedlings, and the anatomy-morphology characteristics of garden cress. Enhanced reductions of t...
Extension of flower longevity in transgenic plants via antisense blockage of ethylene bıosynthesis
Deçani Yol, Betul; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
Ethylene (C2H4) is a very simple molecule, a gas, and has numerous effects on the growth, development and storage life of many fruits, vegetables and ornamental crops. In higher plants, ethylene is produced from L-methionine in essentially all tissues and ACC Synthase and ACC Oxidase are the two key enzymes in the biosynthesis of ethylene. The objective of the present study was to transform tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Samsun) plant with partial sequence of torenia acc oxidase gene in antisense and sen...
Influence of boron toxicity on global expression profiles in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Kayihan, C.; Oz, M. T.; EYİDOĞAN, FÜSUN; YÜCEL, MUSTAFA; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (2012-09-23)
Excess boron (B) is known to negatively affect plant growth. However, the molecular mechanism of toxicity in plants is not satisfactory elucidated. In this study, global expression differences in wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. Atay-85 and Bolal-2973) leaves and roots under B toxicity were investigated using DNA microarrays. Eight day old aseptically grown seedlings were subjected to 5 mM H3BO3 for 5 days. Total RNAs from leaf or root tissues were isolated and checked by Bioanalyzer 2100. Expression profile...
Effects of purified and non-purified paper plant effluents on fertilization and development of sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus Lam, eggs
Uysal, Zahit (1996-01-01)
The gametes and embryos of Paracentrotus lividus were exposed to purified and nonpurified effluents of a paper plant together with tap water. The toxicity of purified and non-purified effluents were resembled. Most severe pathologic cases were evident with the tap water. In general, developmental defects were increased with decreasing salinity at all test solutions.
