Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. Article ( PDF Available) in Nature () · May with. Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception. 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.

These responses are manifold and include the production of reactive oxygen species, the deposition of callose, the upregulation of defense genes, as well diseasw the inhibition of seedling growth Boller and Felix Finally, an example of adaptive changes in the strength of immune responses, causing genetic incompatibilities and compromising plant growth at low temperature, has been reported Alcazar et al. The estimation of heritability for the trait inhibition of seedling growth is not meaningful, as the trait is derived from mean values per RIL.

At the functional level, two alternative scenarios can be anticipated for the FLS2 locus, depending on the spectrum of microbial strains to be detected: We studied functional variation mediated by FLS2 in A. Geographic variation in adaptation at the molecular level: With the exception of Stor, all five A. Therefore, we found no evidence for local adaptation at the FLS2 locus.

Successful pathogens overcome this layer of PAMP-triggered immunity by secreting effectors to suppress this first line of defense. Neither of the above. Sign In or Create an Account. This flg22 peptide has the highest binding affinity known to date and elicits the strongest responses in A. The cone opsin repertoire of osteoglossomorph fishes: The correlation between flg and elfelicited inhibition of seedling growth points to shared components controlling FLS2 and EFR receptor abundance, which could affect other PAMP perception systems and thus be key regulators of PAMP-triggered immunity.


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. It is tempting to speculate that variation in flg22 perception is maintained via a trade-off between defense and growth.

Recombination breakpoints, that is, contiguous SNPs for which the four gametic types were observed, were identified using Bxcterial Rozas et al.

These values were compared with the genome distribution established for 20 microsatellite ;erception and SNPs in Kronholm et al.

The presence of FLS2 receptors in distant taxa, despite evasion of flagellin recognition by some microbial strains, suggests that FLS2 retains its relevance for defense Felix et al.

It is based on the prediction that, for a particular region of the genome, the rate of divergence between species is proportional to the levels of polymorphism within species Hudson et al. Inhibition of seedling growth in either the presence of flg22 as a function of inhibition of seedling growth in the presence of elf Therefore, over such microevolutionary time scales, affinity for flg22 can remain unchanged. Boxes represent the median, lower, and upper quartile; circles show data points lying outside of the 1.
